This week Small Business Saturday Philadelphia, Momentum Digital’s Mac Federick sat down with Calogero Zito to talk about Dolce & Caffe , a  cozy Italian cafe nestled on 2nd Street in Philadelphia. Everyone needs a go-to coffee shop to work, meet up with friends, or simply relax and Dolce & Caffe has all your coffee aesthetic needs. The generations of Italian experience has built up to mouth-watering gelato, panini, cannoli, and simple bites. Beside their decadent treats, don’t forget to enjoy their Lavazza Coffee and premier espresso bar.

After moving from Italy to America five years ago, Calogero knew that the first thing he wanted to do was open an authentic espresso bar. He fell in love with the location and beauty of Northern Liberties and decided that after looking around Philadelphia, that it would be the perfect place to start his cafe.

Nothing beats the originality, authenticity, and delicious Italian imported ingredients that make Dolce & Caffe pretty much unbeatable. The menu is limited but the quality is beyond amazing with melt in your mouth pastries, fresh sandwiches, and amazing espresso. It is the perfect location to start your day, take a lunch break, or treat yourself for dessert.

Small Business Saturday Philadelphia- Circle Thrift

Small Business Saturday Philadelphia: Circle Thrift

On this week’s Small Business Saturday, we sat down with Martha, from Circle Thrift in Kensington. At first, you may think Circle Thrift is like any other thrift store but, it actually is unique because it is focused on growing a tight knit environment and giving back to the community.

Martha and a group of friends started Circle Thrift in 2003 when the the Mennonite Central Committee was looking for a city to place a thrift store. Considering the economy was in horrible conditions, Martha wanted to create jobs and work hard so their business could pay workers unlike many other volunteer-based thrift shops. Circle Thrift has been growing ever since and taking in anything from clothes, instruments, decor, etc to create a truly one-stop- shop for any one of their customer’s possible needs.

The close group of people who shop and work at Circle Thrift make it a pleasantly different experience when it comes to shopping. People from all walks of life come in to donate and buy clothes. Circle Thrift gives to various companies from Small Business’ in need to members in the community.

You can find Circle Thrift on their website and on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!
