Both Dunkin' and Starbucks will be open as normal. Einstein's Bagels will also be open and should be operating on normal hours.

You can also grab coffee or last minute snacks at WaWa and 7-Eleven, which are both expected to be open 24/7. Holiday hours may be in effect, so be sure to call your nearest location to confirm.
