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 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.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. 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.
