This is our newest cafe and we are proud to be a part of another iconic and historic Philadelphia building. The Franklin, as it is now known, use to be the Ben Franklin hotel and is the site where President Lincoln gave one of his inspiring speeches on his way to Washington to be sworn in as the 16th President.
