Passero's, one of the oldest names in Philly specialty coffee, has opened a shop at the Franklin (834 Chestnut St., 267-318-7074).
The space was briefly the Center City outpost of the ill-starred Town Hall Coffee. Passero's has plenty of baked goods, as well as grab-and-go items.
Passero's, which recently set up a roasting business at The Loom in Port Richmond, dates back to 1991, when Jeff Lincoln and his wife, Linda, opened a stand at Suburban Station, following it up two years later with a tiny shop across from the Academy of Music on Locust Street. The couple later sold the company to Colombia's coffee exporters (aka Juan Valdez) but took it back in 2010.
