Philly, You're Magical

Philly, one of my favorite cities to visit! This is probably my fifth time visiting but the city never gets old, there's always something to do and a new place to explore. I discovered an amazing donut shop right in front of my airbnb which serves vegan donuts! There are other vegan options including cream cheese for the everything bagel I had for breakfast. I would take a day trip just to go to Dottie's Donuts. I would recommend their matcha donuts and thai tea, I didn't get to try their other flavors because they rotate flavors each day. I spent most of my time exploring parts of Philly I haven't explored before, but also going to some of my favorite spots such as Sampan, Green Eggs Cafe, La Colombe, and Function Coffee Labs. In the summer, Philly hosts Center City District Sips where restaurants in Center City have amazing happy hour deals. My friends recommended Barbuzzo as well! Below are a list of some places I recommend when in Philly!
What to see, eat, and shop:
-Bluestone Lane, adorable Australian cafe with yummy food and delicious coffee.
-Omoi Zakka, cool Japanese store with fun cards and things you didn't think you needed but need.
-La Colombe, my favorite coffee shop ever. Period. 
-Open House, amazing lifestyle shop and one stop shop for gifts for anybody.
