Standard Brunch Fare – Just went to Fitzwater Cafe up for brunch. It was pretty average. I had been informed that the baking would be the high point - but the muffin, toast, and french toast we had was nothing special.

nothing special is the perfect way to describe their sunday brunch. everything is made well, but nothing stands out.

biggest positive is probably plenty of nearby parking.

Amazing Food, Great Location, the best place for good food for my money! – Best weekend breakfast I've ever had. Can not believe the price for what we ordered but even more important, the food was just delicious! The French Toast and the Cafe Crossant is totally out of this world and I meant it. We traveled 50 miles to go here on a recomendation. (nothing else to do) It was worth every mile of our trip. There's parking out front as well.

Great Brunch spot with No Wait! – This is a small, quaint cafe with a tin ceiling and a long cream bar. The pretty interior, which looks recently renovated with attention to preserving old fixtures and details is a surprise since the exterior is a basic boxy building. It is a small cafe, but very well-appointed. It took just 5 minutes to get a table for 3, which is the shortest I have ever waited in Philly for brunch. The food was delicious - freshly prepared and warm, coming right off the skillet. I had the french toast with bananas and coffee - I could only finish half the toast but it was super and indulgent. My friend had the goat cheese omelet with zucchini and peppers. It was savory and flavorful. Somehow, we weren't charged for the coffees and fresh ojs - maybe they came with? Each brunch menu item was from $5 to $10, so very reasonably priced for the gorgeous setting, short wait, and delicious food. Would come back again and again, esp b/c parking was easy with a couple of spaces at the place and no restrictions on the public parking which was safe and easy to come by.

Simple, refined corner cafe provides pleasant breakfasts, light lunches and perfect pastries. – In Short
Disguised by a box-like exterior, Bella Vista's prettiest cafe doubles as a pastry and pasta kitchen for sister restaurant, Saloon. Still-warm banana and chocolate-chip muffins, and gigantic, gooey cinnamon buns stand out among the baked goods. Heartier morning options include a fluffy, roasted red pepper omelette, perfectly crisped home fries, thick slices of homemade toast and freshly squeezed juices. At lunch, simple grilled vegetable and Caesar salads satisfy, though the "PLT" sandwich.

My favorite breakfast spot – Best place for a relaxing weekend breakfast! Quaint little atmosphere. They have a fantastic fruit bowl, which was good since then I didn't feel so guilty about ordering their yummy banana muffin. Weekend specials are always awesome - like Italian eggs or Caprese-style omelettes or french toast with bananas and nutella or fruit. I tried a lot of breakfast joints in Philly before finding this one and my search is over. Fantastic pastry case too in case you're looking for something to go.

Great SmokeFree Bistro – Great, casual (cash only) Italian bistro, with attentive service, truly smoke-free restaurant, well-prepared, tasty dishes (special diet requests honored), a great value! (Small parking lot or street parking usually available.)
