A great breakfast and lunch spot, located at the conjunction of 7th and Pemberton Streets, the Fitzwater Cafe boasts of a fabulous kitchen team, headed by Stacey DiPlacido. On offer here is an impressive menu that's dominated by hearty breakfast and brunch preparations. A famously BYOB place, where you can get your own alcohol to add to the 'buzz value' of your gorgeous brunch, Fitzwater Cafe serves truly scrumptious dishes like Crème Brulée French toast, breakfast burrito and tomato and pesto omelet, to name a few, along with fresh squeeze juices. The service is great and the prices are quite fair, the only con here is that they don't accept cards, so better load up on cash before heading here.
It has been said that the owner consulted a Feng Shui expert when designing the harmoniously arranged interior of this restaurant. In the belief that superior food must be balanced by not only quality service but an equally balanced environment, there is an intriguing, moody, film-noir quality to the space. The menu has a way of appealing to the senses in a sort of subliminal way, combining an otherwise common ingredient with a surprising twist. See website for full menus and more. Note the extensive lists of both wine and imported and microbrewed beers.
This American Southern and Jewish fusion restaurant is a paradise for vegetarians and health-conscious individuals. It features tofu, veggie sausages, free-range eggs, organic fair trade coffees, and locally-grown produce. The dinner menu is equally good with a BYOB policy and items such as Honey's homemade veggie burger and Honey fried chicken fingers served with scallion hushpuppies. The décor is country kitchen — hard wood floors, light green walls trimmed with flowered wallpaper and adorned with old-fashioned photos, accessorized with red and white checkered lamps. Excellent service, fantastic food, fresh ingredients, and a relaxing atmosphere are the reasons why Honey's takes top honors in the city of brotherly love.
This brew pub with a dimly lit interior, dark wood tables, and antique-style collectables hanging on the walls makes for a cozy atmosphere. But if you're looking for a bottle of one of those well-known beers, you'll have to go elsewhere. Standard Tap only serves local microbrews on draft such as the Slyfox Pikeland Pils or the Victory Hope Devil either of which goes perfectly with the Standard Tap Burger. Weekend brunch is popular with entrees such as the ham & cheddar omelet or French Toast with raspberry puree. The first Saturday Brunch of the month features something for the whole family. Parents can relax while children are entertained with the live music of Lara and Joe in the upstairs bar.
