Great coffee

Ray's has great coffee, even Blue Mountain coffee and Kona coffee, and all of them are delicious. The service is excellent, the people polite. The food is expensive, though and the cheapest of the coffees is $4 for one cup.
Also, it's a bit awkward if you're with a group, since it's a small cafe. There are four-chair tables, however, so don't let that deter you.
But if you need a place to relax and enjoy a good cup of coffee, and can afford to splurge a little, then this is definitely the place for you.

Unique and interesting

I head to Ray's whenever I'm in Philly for an out of the ordinary coffee and food experience. Try the dumpling sampler or one of the specials. The Iced Coffee is outstanding. If you're bored with the assembly line service and generic treats at Starbucks head to Rays.

not great

I walked in with a very positive attitude but left having only had a fairly good cup of tea at an excellent cup-of-tea price. It's possible that my palate wasn't discerning enough to appreciate what they were offering. The atmosphere was interesting (bubbling contraptions at the counter) but a bit cool and sterile, not cozy. On the bright side, the tea presentation was impressive and the menu offered the customer access to some rare and exquisite coffees.

Maybe I missed something?

I'm apprehensive to be too critical, having been here only once, but my initial reaction is ""$8.50 for a cup of tea--what?!"". The presentation was nice, the service was pleasant, the interesting glass brewing contraptions (I think that's what they were, we didn't see them put to use) were a conversation topic. But beyond that...I'm not sure what other reviewers seemed to be so taken with about this place. The ($8.50) tea tasted...like tea, but I'm willing to admit that I might have a thing or two to learn about exceptional tea? Not sure. The iced capuccino was nothing special (at $5.50). I'm sorry Ray

Best Coffee in Philly

Ray's makes an amazing cup of coffee that is served with elegance! The service is always prompt, warm, and polite. The food is tasty and the desserts are wonderful. It is always a treat to introduce friends to this wonderful place.

a nice place for a fancy cup o' joe

Ray's is probably the best place for exotic coffee and tea within chinatown limits. It's a wonderful place for a first date as it is informal while portraying a slight elegance. Definately a favorite!
