There's a new reason to head to Headhouse Square—even when the famed farmer’s market isn't going. Bodhi Coffee opened today and, according to City Paper’s Meal Ticket, this place is offering a great cup o’ joe and some sustainable fixings.
The space was assembled using reclaimed materials from a number of local sources, says Meal Ticket:
The narrow, sunny space, right next to Xochitl across from the Shambles, was put together with reclaimed materials from sources high and low. Logue got a bunch of black walnut for counters and trimmings from a purveyor in DelCo, but also snagged some raw wood for shelving from a gutted house out in West Philly; lots of nice custom work by carpenter Doug Powley. Custom lighting and some of the furniture for the space was developed by Robert True Ogden. The fixture in the sixth pic above, for example, was inspired by a hanging light the designer uncovered in a long-vacant West Philly candy store.
Bodhi is also serving up coffee accompaniments, like sandwiches and paninis, made from locally sourced ingredients.
