Make Studying Enjoyable At Our University City Coffee Shop

As a student in University City, a great coffee shop is the perfect place to hang out with friends, or a nice spot to study off campus. Sometimes a change of scenery (and a delicious cup of coffee) is exactly what you need when studying for finals. At Waterfront Gourmet Cafe, not only do we offer award-winning and distinctive coffee by Illy, but you can drink it with one of our amazing inspired twists on deli-style sandwiches, signature salads, or gourmet paninis. You can always rely on the freshness of our coffee and our sandwiches, as well as our menu which is constantly evolving!

For When You Need a Cup of Joe

If you need an excellent cup of coffee to start your morning off right, or to get you past that 2 pm slump, our gourmet illy coffee will do you good. Illy is an incredible Italian coffee business that is blended from arabica beans sourced from all over the world and has been awarded for its commitment to the environment, sustainability, their ethical relationships and responsibility to their growers. Illy coffee packaging process ensures maximum freshness, so when you order your next cup of joe at this coffee shop in University City, you know you’re getting something special. And if you’re a student in University City and need a study break, you can come to this coffee shop from 3-8pm and get free coffee to accompany your finals cramming.


For When You’ve Got That One Friend

We all have at least one friend who has dietary restrictions (you may even be that friend), so going to a place that is veggie friendly is always a welcome treat! While we have our coffee shop roots with a deli twist, we still have some of the best food in University City. We have a selection of gourmet vegetarian specials that all come with a side of chips or a small seasonal salad. If you’re in the mood for a meatless burger, our Veggie Cartelle Burger is a favorite with its veggie patty, pepper jack cheese, veggies, avocado, and spicy mayo. If you or your friend is a big tofu fan, our Picante Tofu Burrito and Tofu Sub both make a delicious source of vegan or vegetarian protein. Or if you’re craving a salad (and a good one, not just a sad compilation of iceberg lettuce and cucumbers), then our selection will fit the bill. We have a range of tastes and flavors, from Asian Sensation to Arugula and Apple, to Southwest Grilled Chicken! And if you’re friend is on the trendy side, we still have them covered with our delicious Avocado Toast.

All of these options and more are available at our coffee shop in University City and our location at Penn’s Landing. Whenever you need incredible illy coffee and a delicious gourmet sandwich (or salad), particularly to accompany your study sessions, Waterfront Gourmet Cafe is the place to be. Oh, and don’t worry if you’re too busy studying to even make it over to our amazing coffee shop. We will deliver our delicious sandwiches, salads, and coffee to you all over University City through GrubHub and Uber Eats. So what are you waiting for, start your order now!
