The Broadway corridor welcomed yet another coffee shop with the addition of Mila Coffee Specialty Brews. The trailer posts up across Appler Street from an Enterprise Rent-A-Car with a full espresso menu, using Rival Bros. Coffee from Philadelphia and pastries from Sol y Luna Bakery. Owned by Marco Cardel, the coffee truck is named after his daughter Mila and features a tasty house-made Mexican vanilla syrup, which took my latte to another level. Find the truck at 2202 Broadway Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
