Monday, Sept. 23 will be the premiere of the city's second Joe Coffee, coming to Drexel U's Chestnut Square (32d and Chestnut Streets).

This is an offshoot of the New York-bred specialty-coffee chain, whose first Philly location opened at 1845 Walnut St. in April. Joe roasts its beans in Brooklyn at Pulley Collective - a house espresso, house blend and four single origins. 

Besides pastries, the location will serve soups, salads and sandwiches from Washington Square's Talula's Daily.

Free wifi; hours will be 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

This will be the first food business in Chestnut Square, where Shake Shack (next door to the Joe), Zavino, coZara and Yogorino are expected to be online within six weeks or so.
