Spruce Street Espresso will be taking the day off on Thanksgiving to eat as much delicious food as possible and to get a much needed break from the daily grind of cafe ownership and preparations for the upcoming Oddfellows Cafe that we are hoping to have opened by the end of the year. It has been a long and amazing road and I’d like to speak for the rest of the staff when I say what we are thankful for in regards to our little corner of 11th and Spruce.
Babychinos and the adorable kids who drink them-Your milk mustaches and giggle fits make our hearts melt, really. It has been so cute to watch these kids grow.
Rana Market- Those guys are always there when you need them! Especially Rudy. From the breakfast egg sandwich to the afternoon deli sandwich, chips, salad, hummus and carrots or whatever that get us through our shifts when we more often than not forget to pack a lunch. A barista can’t live on coffee and croissants alone.
The Philadelphia Coffee Community- There are too many of you to name but you know who you are. You keep us coming to the Thursday Night Throwdowns and scooting around to shops around the city every chance we get. Philadelphia has such an incredible and growing group of talented and invested baristas and coffee professionals. I can’t wait to see what is in store for us next!
Our Customers- Duh, you guys are really the best, not just because you help us keep the lights on with your financial support but also because you are as friendly as can be in ways that are above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you for letting us get to know you and your families and pet your dogs. When it is slow behind the counter it is always nice to have some folks around who are guaranteed to liven the place up with some conversation or a crazy story or two!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone! Thanks for your continued support!
