Plenty Café is inspired by an undying interest in the wide variety of cultures in the world and the culinary differences between them. Our menu reflects this through the focus we place on exciting flavors and the desire to present them in unique sandwiches & salads. Our coffee program is approached with the same care and focus on quality as all of our dishes. We take great strides in presenting local, premium ingredients that are all-natural and prepared in-house. Through our partnerships with expert roasters, we are able to source our coffee in the same way. It is exceptionally important to us to use local products as often as possible as this assures freshness, accountability and supports the local community.
Square One Coffee is a Lancaster-based small batch roaster that not only exemplifies our approach to standards but also mirrors our focus on quality. When our partnership began, we got together with the folks from Square One to develop exclusive blends that can only be found in our cafes. These blends have been painstakingly chosen for their subtleties and then roasted to a precise profile so as to bring out every bit of flavor. All of our cafes use the Gallivant blend for house-espresso and the Wayfarer blend for our house-drip coffee. The Gallivant is a two-bean blend containing coffee from Mexico and Colombia. This espresso has a velvety mouthfeel and evokes notes of dark chocolate, hazelnut and a soft berry finish. The Wayfarer is an earthy coffee that is approachable in the way that you’d anticipate your morning cup to be. It has a wonderful nutty aroma and a sharp, clean finish that ends with subtle notes of stone fruit.
In addition to our house offerings we utilize a guest roaster program, which allows us to bring our customers new and exciting coffees from various roasters around the country. These roasters are chosen by their focus on quality and are generally offered for two to three months at a time. We offer the guest roaster as multiple single-origin, hand-poured coffees, espresso as well as nitro cold brew coffee at our E. Passyunk location.
We also sell 12 oz. bags of both our custom blends as well as the current guest roaster. These bags can be bought whole-bean or grinded to specification by one of our knowledgeable baristas. Home brewing items can be purchased at both cafés as well.
In addition to coffee, we offer an extensive loose tea selection. The same focus on quality is exhibited in our approach to tea, as we steep all of them according to precise time and temperature specifications. We also offer several cold-steeped iced teas and rotate them seasonally. Continuing with our approach to quality and freshness, our chocolate sauce, chai tea mix and dulce de leche are all made in-house so as to control every detail of the beverages that we offer.
Plenty Café is a very unique place as we are able to offer hand-crafted café fare alongside skillfully prepared specialty coffee, all while being confident that every product has been chosen for its quality, freshness and flavor.
