So I’ve been saying in some of my recent blog posts that I wanted to do an updated Philly brunch guide. There’s an older Philly brunch guide lurking around on the blog and I’ve mentioned some of my favorite Philly brunch spots here, but I wanted to do a brand new one! So cozy up with a cup of coffee and let’s dig in…
Wm. Mulherin’s Sons – Going here makes me feel like I’m on the set of Peaky Blinders (I’m all caught up on it, so let’s chat people). I love a cozy, sophisticated atmosphere, and that’s exactly what this spot provides. Prepare for your brunch by seeing their menu here; pictured below is the Eggs on Volcano. And yes, you’re going to want to make a reservation!
Walnut Street Cafe – I love the vibe, decor, food – basically everything – about this place. I ordered the Khachapuri, pictured below, and it was perfection. Check out more of their brunch menu here. Side note: the roasted potatoes are excellent.
Front Street Cafe – Writing this post has made me realize I need to book another reservation at Front Street Cafe ASAP. Everything on this menu is phenomenal. I sadly don’t have any photos to share from my visit there, but a quick search on Instagram will show you that this place is worth the hype.
Harp and Crown – I love all things Michael Schulson – my birthday dinner last year was at Sampan and my birthday brunch this year was at the incredible Harp and Crown. I’m kicking myself for not taking more photos of their brunch spread for this post, but please trust me on this. On Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 AM – 2 PM, for just $28, enjoy a FULL brunch buffet at Harp and Crown. I’m talking omelets, waffles, make-your-own donuts – basically everything you could ever want in a brunch. For $15 more, enjoy unlimited mimosas, bellinis and Bloody Marys. And if you can’t get enough of Harp and Crown, head back over for dinner!
The final two restaurants have been on the blog before, but they deserved another shout out!
Bar Bombón – If you’re vegan or have pals who are vegan, then it’s time to pay a visit to Bar Bombón, where everything is made with plant-based ingredients. But you don’t have to be exclusively vegan to enjoy the food! Last time I was there for brunch, I ordered the breakfast potatoes and the breakfast sandwich, and I’m still drooling thinking about it.
Autograph Brasserie – Sometimes you just need to get out of the city and head into the ‘burbs. And when you find yourself in need of an escape, you should book yourself a reservation at Autograph Brasserie in Wayne. The decor alone is enough to visit. There is a vegetarian and allergy menu is available, too!
I’m always in search of a great new brunch place, so leave me your suggestions down below! Currently on my brunch list: Double Knot and Barcelona.
Cheers & happy brunching!
