Established in 1985!
Old City Coffee, Inc. was founded by Ruth Isaac in 1985 as a one-person operation. The original location at 221 Church Street in Philadelphia offered freshly-roasted, Arabica beans, brewed coffee, espresso drinks and brewing accessories. Our original mission to supply the public with freshly roasted high-grade coffees, combined with excellent service and competitive pricing, has not changed. This simple but successful formula has been the framework for our continued growth.
