After yesterday, I wanted a flat and easy ride. We went to Philadelphia and rode along Spring Garden Street to the hipster neighborhood of Northern Liberties .
We found Higher Grounds Cafe tucked into North 3rd Street.
The sun shining on its outdoor wooden bench made it stand out from the row of brick facades. Inside, an actual Barista made an americano for my wife and a singe espresso cappuccino for me.
In the warmth of the late October afternoon, we sat, cups in hand, under the mini pagoda, sharing a bench built for two.
