Pretty soon East Passyunk Avenue will have a new spot to grab a cup of joe.
Rival Bros Coffee, the Philly-based custom coffee roasters with a shop at 24th and Lombard, will soon be joining Black and Brew, Chhaya and others on the avenue in serving coffee. This shop is set to open in the former Chiarella’s Ristorante location at 11th and Tasker.
Expect to see a similar setup to the Lombard Street location. Rival Bros will be serving pastries from High Street on Market and house-made toasts and sandwiches from co-owner, Jonathan Adams.
Chiarella’s closed in this location across from the Singing Fountain back in June of 2015. Rival Bros will be joining soon-to-open Perla, Gennaro’s, Noord and others in the area.
Owners Adams and Damien Pileggi are working on renovations at the shop and according to their social media posts about this new location, plan to open “within the coming months.”
