There is a little bit of figuring out of how the lines work here, but everyone is really nice and the sandwiches are good, too. If you don't eat meat, there's a grilled cheese option!
The house burger, made with bone marrow and topped with anchovy mayo, is one of my favorites in Philly. Not too big, not too small and plenty of surprising flavor.
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.

Known for their cocktails but the food is just as great. Good cocktails, strong seasonal menu, and an inviting atmosphere all in one place.
John's Roast Pork. John's simply cannot be improved. The whole experience -- the dingy room, the camped-out South Philly locals, the dripping pork and soaked bread, the plastic forks and Styrofoam juice cups and bottle of Schmidt's -- deserves to be enshrined in the Smithsonian. … read more
