Whether you’re craving a sky-high stack of pancakes or just in the mood for mimosas, there’s nothing like brunch to cap off a fantastic weekend in the city. So if you’re visiting from South Jersey or Reading, where should you go for the best brunch in Philly? We’ve got five spots that will really satisfy your appetite, so start planning ahead and making your reservations!
The Bloomsday cafe features all the brunch staples that you know and love, but elevated to soaring new heights. Start off with a piping-hot cup of locally brewed coffee or horchata cold brew, or treat yourself to a freshly made cocktail! The seasonal menu is ever-changing, but options like the avocado toast with sherry reduction and breakfast sandwich with pesto cream showcase the best of Philadelphia’s culinary ingenuity.
Bud & Marilyn’s
Bud & Marilyn’s pays tribute to the neighborhood restaurants that Chef Marcie Blaine Turney remembers from her youth, and the warm and welcoming atmosphere is obvious from the moment you step through the door. The diverse menu is divided into a number of categories to satisfy any palate, ranging from sweet caramelized apple french toast to savory biscuits and gravy. Save room for the pecan-cinnamon roll with cardamom cream cheese!
If you’re craving the bold flavors of the Mediterranean, Spice Finch is a must. Each dish is infused with a unique twist that transforms classic dishes into modern innovations. Try the pancakes, drizzled with orange blossom maple syrup and toasted nuts, or try the bacon breakfast flatbread with zesty harissa. And if you’re having trouble deciding, we suggest the spiced tomato shakshuka!
Inspired by Northern European cuisine, Winkel starts your morning off with bright and zingy flavors that awaken your senses. Omelettes receive modern makeovers with options like zucchini and mint or roasted pear and brie, while international favorites like the Uitsmijter sandwich and smoked fish pumpernickel toast. Want something sweet? You can’t go wrong with their legendary strawberry almond deep fried french toast!
Café y Chocolate
Bringing the flavors of Mexico straight to Philadelphia, Café y Chocolate is a magical place to enjoy a hot beverage on a cold South Jersey morning. Try the decadent cajetuccino or Chocolate Oaxaca to warm you up or an agua fresca on a summer day. As for the main course, it’s hard to choose anything but the chilaquiles with homemade tortilla chips, although the molletes sandwich and breakfast burrito come close.
