Philly's a killer beer city, sure—but here are some places where the non-alcoholic selections hold their own (and maybe even steal the show).
Of course they've got a great beverage selection including Jarritos, Sidral and horchata—but the real must-try is the avena, or oatmeal, smoothie.
The attention to detail at Zahav goes right down to the bottom of the drink list: you won't miss the alcohol if you're sipping on a sour cherry iced tea or an allspice-spiked orange sparkler.
Turkish coffee and tart ayran are always good choices; when the weather starts to turn colder, a warm mug of sahleb is a uniquely delicious way to warm up.
Seasonal mocktails at Vernick are sophisticated enough to match the food. Expect crisp combos like ginger and lime, raspberry-basil or lemonade with mint.
It's not the only place in town to drink a Champ Cherry, but it is the only place to pair it with a Guinness world-record-holding collection of pizza memorabilia.
The intricate, handcrafted juice drinks could stand in as a meal on their own, but better yet to consider them a dessert option after exploring the vast selection of flatbreads.
You're here for the awesome roast pork or fried lasagna sandwich, but fountain black cherry wishniak really gilds the lily.
The housemade sodas here are kinda out of control, from basics like root beer to creative combos like raspberry-sumac and lemon-goji berry.
Breezy's carries a dozen soda flavors from Reading Draft—and you can even buy them by the case if you get hooked. Try them in a killer ice cream float!
