Best Diner in Philly – This is where my husband and I go for meals when we are in Philadelphia. They have an excellent breakfast menu and their eggs benedict are very good. Their lunch specials are great and offer a nice variety of International Cuisine. As for desserts, their apple pie is scrumptious especially when it is slightly warmed up and served ala mode.
overrated stool – The tiny menu shatters any resemblance to the quintessential American diner. Our food was mediocre at best and the service was casually awful.
Dirty Dishes – The place was very dirty. The water glasses had what looked like ashes and crumbs in the bottom. They do not give refills on soft drinks. There is no parking. Finally, the food and service was not good enough to be worth going back.
Sobering-Up food – What better way to end a night but over a plate of sweet potato fries and a milkshake?? Its open 24 hours on the weekend so staying out late isn't a problem if you're hungry. Just prepared to wait in line at about 2 am after the bars let out, but its a great time to people watch. I reccommened their fries and the black russian, and maybe a piece of pie to top it off.
late-night munchies!! – silk city is a great spot for late-night dining. the menu is a step above your typical greasy diner. also it's right on spring garden so it's close to philly bars such as Finnigan's Wake, McFadden's, and Tiki Bob's Cantina. so it's a good spot to hit after a night of boozing
