Who We Are

We specialize in food and drink concepts created and designed exclusively for airports. Our singular dedication towards working within the airport community has allowed us to become intimately familiar with all of the issues that are vital to operating a successful airport business: airport security, employee screening, menu development, and the needs of the traveling public.

While providing air travelers and airport employees with quality food, delicious beverages, and outstanding customer service, we have simultaneously addressed such important airport matters as passenger flow, airport signage, and cleanliness.

To airport travelers we are a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of traversing the world. To airport management we are an efficient, successful business partner. To both we say the same thing: Welcome to Fresh Airport Concepts.

Our Mission

We strive to do two things:

TO OUR GUESTS… Provide mouthwatering, delicious and fresh products in an inviting, gleamingly clean environment with over-the-top customer service that will make you say “WOW!”

TO OUR LANDLORDS, AIRPORTS, AND CITIES… Be an exemplary and active member of the entire airport community. We serve both our customers and our partners with unrivaled service and unwavering dedication to going above and beyond the norm. As either the first stop in a new city or the last stop upon departure, we aim to leave a great impression on the traveling public.


“This is probably the best airport food (taste & value) I’ve ever had. It’s hard to find healthy options and veg protein at airports, and so I’d go out of my way for this (which I did). 3 salad options + a side of tofu is enough to feed two people.”
Christina S.
San Francisco, CA

“When a couple slivers of airplane cookie just won’t do…Dogpatch to the rescue!”
Andrea A.
Atlanta, GA

“Great airport food! My wife and I got some food to take on our flight the other day and it was very good quality and tasty! It is a nice healthy choice over usual airport food and worked out great to take on our flight!”
Brent F.
San Mateo, CA

“As a local, I come here 2-3 times a week. Friendly staff, delicious menu and high-quality coffee. One of those rare finds, in that it’s a great spot for a grab-and-go coffee or a sit-down breakfast.”
Ryan G.
San Francisco, CA

“Veggies on the fly-at an airport! They offer different unique salads i.e. quinoa, roasted beet w/pumpkin seeds & cranberries, roasted butternut squash, etc.”
Patricia B.

“They get 4 stars because they had healthy, gluten-free options.”
Sheila T.
Boston, MA

“Amazing salads! So nice to find healthy food at an airport!”
Anita S.

“I travel through terminal 3 of SFO regularly as a United frequent flyer. I’m so fond of the salad selection at the Dogpatch Cafe that I look forward to the layover. I’ve even arrived in SFO as my final destination and eaten dinner there.”
Doug J.
Mill Creek, WA

“A great find!!! A great way to end a busy week!!! Salads, sandwich, or breakfast anytime!!!”
Becky W.

“What a treat! healthy food choices and price was the same as other airplane food. My noodles and grilled chicken were delicious as was my cookie.”
Decatur, IL

“This place offers food that is locally sourced and is very fresh. Just ate a bacon, egg, and cheese croissant and it was delicious!”
Michele P.

“The best thing at Dogpatch is their make your own plate option. They have about a half-dozen options for vegetables, prepared salad and grains. It is a great way to get well prepared, thoughtful vegetables at the airport.”
David B.

“La Colombe is my terminal B go-to. Hell, it’s even my go-to from terminal A. Ironically, I don’t go there a ton in Philly, but it’s great to have a local place represented in the airport. –
La Colombe makes early mornings in the airport just a little more tolerable.”
Michelle P.
Philadephia PA

“Adorable! Long line and rightfully so: I felt right at home with the organic, “California-esque” breakfast that was offered, complete with macha to macarons, avocado to acai”.
Melissa G.
Los Angeles CA

“Wow. Who knew the best açaí bowl I’ve ever had would be at an airport?! The peanut butter chocolate bowl was amazing! Must try while waiting for your flight “
Raleigh M.
Barrington, IL

“La Colombe is a fabulous addition to PHL airport Terminal E!”
Pittsburgh, PA

“Located in Terminal A and B, this place has an avocado toast that is off the hook! Service is excellent, and the staff is pretty nice especially on the B side. I come here when I need my avocado fix. It’s tasty and truly ridiculous.”
Michael F.
Mesa, AZ

“This is the best espresso and coffee that you will find at the airport. Life is too short – why bother if it’s not exquisite. That’s why I only go here for espresso. How do they get all that flavor into such a tiny cup. Seriously small cup big flavor.”
Brian J.
Philadelphia, PA

“The service and cafe latte were excellent. The tomato mozzarella sandwich and chocolate croissant were also very good. The sandwich was generously sized and fresh. Nice set of options for adults and kids. Exceeded expectations for an airport quick food pick-up!”
Kate K.
Tucson, AZ

“Um, am I in an airport??! Truly felt like I was pulled from reality for a second there. THANK YOU La Colombe! This is how it’s supposed to be done!”
La Sandra P.
Philadelphia, PA
