ACME brings Starbucks, Beer, & Wine to Snyder Plaza

ACME is moving into ShopRite’s old spot in Snyder Plaza, according to the Goldenberg Group, ACME Markets real estate and development firm. The new ACME is rumored to include a Starbucks coffee, as well as a beer and wine shop.

We’ve never seen a Starbucks inside an ACME around these parts, but for the neighborhood’s sake,  we hope someone will confirm these rumors soon.

The new full-line grocery market, set to open in the Summer of 2017, will be located in the Snyder Plaza Shopping Center and will serve the Pennsport and Whitman neighborhoods as well as the greater Center City area.

Valena’s Simple Cafe opening in Pennsport/Whitman

The vacuum repair shop has closed and is transitioning into Valena’s Simple Cafe! Pennsport and Whitman neighborhood have been sorely lacking in independently owned coffee shops. This new cafe, opening right at the border of Pennsport and Whitman, will be located at the corner of Front st and Snyder ave.

Nominations: Best Coffee Shop in Philly 2015

Best in Philly 2015 is officially accepting nominations for the best coffee shop in Philadelphia! There are few rules. Readers simply suggest their favorite coffee shop within the city limits, whether the shop be local, chain, or foreign brew. Nominations will be accepted until the end of October.

Did you know? Probably. Coffee shops serve coffee and perhaps other beverages and small bites. If it takes lunch or dinner reservations, it’s probably a restaurant and you should reserve the nomination for a food category. If more than a handful of people get drunk in it daily, it’s probably more suiting of the brewery bar category.
