Philadelphia is a brunch city. No matter the weather - cold chilly Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons so hot you could cook eggs on the sidewalk - we will wait in line for our frittatas and home fries. This love for brunch has led to restaurants serving up more than just the standard pancakes and sausage.
If you're a steak and egg brunch eater, make sure to order the Colombian Breakfast, top round steak served with corn meal patties, two eggs, rice with beans, and slices of plantains.
Bar Ferdinand might not be the first place you think about for brunch, but it should. Stand outs include the truffled eggs, fried potatoes, and the chorizo.
I highly recommend the Sunday meze. The menu changes weekly for the meze and it offers a vegetarian option. If you're going with a group of three or four, other one vegetarian option and the rest the regular.
Not your usual Philadelphia brunch menu, but go there for it and you will not be disappointed.
Oyster, roast beef, soft shell crab…Catahoula offers a good selection of the classic po boy sandwich. Also great are the fried green tomatoes.
Ela's twist on brunch staples such as pancakes, benedicts, and biscuits and gravy are not to be missed. My fav is the Ginger Snap Pancakes.
The patio is one of the most beautiful area to enjoy happy hour. The cold pressed foie gras and portobello fries are not to be missed.
