Ah, more food content! We hope that makes you as happy – and hungry – as it makes us. After all, you can’t spell “[ 2 one 5 ] Creative” without “eat.” In this series, we will explore different types of food found in the City of Brotherly Love that we like to fuel ourselves with. We’ll start with the most pivotal – the Monday morning/anytime pick-me-ups we like to call #creativebrews.
United by Blue
205 Race St
Old City, Philadelphia 19106
Monday – Friday: 7 am – 7 pm
Saturday & Sunday: 8 am – 7 pm
United by Blue is one of our rad neighbors we visit for a good old cup o’ Joe as well as a healthy bite for breakfast or lunch (or brunch). UBB is a delicious coffee spot, but beyond that, “our” location is their flagship retail store. The United by Blue mission is to help sustain and conserve nature by removing “one pound of trash from our world’s oceans and waterways” for every product sold. We love their strong brand identity and sense of social responsibility (and, of course, their outdoor apparel and gear). In keeping with their brand, the entire shop has a cabiny, cozy feel – ideal for anyone sipping on a #creativebrew.
743 S 4th St

Friday: 7 am – 12 pm
Saturday & Sunday: 9 am – 4 pm, 5 pm – 12 pm
Hungry Pigeon describes itself as the spot for both morning birdies and night owls who love comfort food. We’re here for it. With food made from local ingredients, mouth-watering pastries, pour-over coffee from various corners of the world, and a home-y feeling venue, who wouldn’t call themselves a hungry pigeon? We can’t suggest one go-to order since the menu changes daily based on local sourced dishes and ingredients, but we promise you that no matter what you order, you won’t leave a sad pigeon. Follow the flock and try their #creativebrews.

Weekdays: 7 am – 6 pm
Weekends: 8 am – 5 pm
This industrial nook with beautiful, tall windows is the perfect place to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee as you clear out your inbox or catch up with a colleague. You may even make a new friend as you study at one of the communal tables. Plus, there’s a kids reading corner if you come with your family. Whoever you’re with, we mean what we say when we say this bunch makes a delicious cup of coffee – the Shot Tower never disappoints with their #creativebrews.
Thought we were finished? There’s still more to come in our crEATive series! In our next installment, we will be taking slices from our favorite places so that you can decide where you want to go back to for the whole pie.
