It can’t just be me but food gives me life. I love seafood. I love the savory. I love a good tasting but food can be kicked up a notch when enjoyed in the right company and at the right place. There is no reason not to laugh and smile over drinks and some good with with a few people you care about. Brunch is a time when we can get together and share stories from the week, vent about what is going on in our lives. So these are a few places I have tried in Philadelphia.

And at the end of the day…we have to eat right? Why not eat good food.

White Dog Cafe

White Dog Cafe – Green Meadow Double Cheddar Burger w/ Egg and Avocado


White Dog Cafe is right in the heart of University City. It’s parked right in the middle of Sanson St, where you may have a hard time finding parking. This has been a popular spot for brunches as the menu features American fare and with a drink or the unlimited option, can get you a decent meal for $30-40. I had the double cheddar burger but had to be greedy and added on avocado and a fried egg. It was a long Saturday so this was a welcomed treat on Sunday.

Green Eggs Cafe

Green Eggs Cafe – Chicken and Waffles Benedict

All hail Green Eggs! I have heard and heard and heard about Green Eggs a million and one times. Especially because some locations are byob. They are definitely a must try breakfast/brunch spot with the fan favorites like chicken and waffles, which I didn’t hesitate to try, The Kitchen Sink which pretty much tosses all of your favorites into a cast iron skillet, or even some good ol’ shrimp and grits. When you get there, let me know how it is.

Ms. Tootsie's RBL

Ms. Tootsie’s RBL – Shrimp and Lobster Grits

Speaking of Shrimp and Grits, Ms. Tootsie’s had a good one with some lobster bits tucked in. Their brunch events get kind of hectic and on the day I went, we lost power a few times, the wait was out the door, and the crowd was just not ready to leave. It’s a mix of food and fun, but you might want to get a snack before you go because it gets busy.
