Need Sunday Brunch Idea for this Sunday

Okay folks, I need your help!

We have friends coming in to visit us this weekend. (We are in Queen Village area). The wife is a gourmet cook. We already have visit planned for Saturday to Reading Term Mkt and She likes Chef's Market on South St. Sunday we need to go to DiBrunos new place as she's read about it.

So we need a Sunday brunch place that is interesting and moderately priced. We've done Fork and also Sabrinas and they liked both.

Since we will be at DiBrunos on Sunday we could consider a place there. Or maybe drive up to Northern Libs. But it will be 92 degrees (maybe) so it must be a place which will be comfortable.

We don't drink at Brunch and it will be more Breakfasty eating than lunch.

Any great ideas for me!

  1. Maybe Honey's in Northern Liberties.

    1. I believe that the new DiBrunos serves brunch upstairs, but I have not been.

      If you want something near/in your neighborhood, why not Beau Monde at 6th and Bainbridge?

        I may the only one but I've been dissapointed in BM ever since they opened. I guess I'm a grepes on the street kind of guy. (Even in Europe).

        But thanks for the idea.

      2. its a bit of a stretch to say it 'serves' brunch, i went about 2 weeks ago and its more cafeteria style, sort of like a cosi with much better sandwiches. it was nice having one of their grilled sandwiches fresh off the panini-press but not really a restaurant experience.

        what about cafe lutecia at 23rd and Lombard? Or Ants Pants on South?

        1. I know that Ava is near Queen Village and they started brunch on Sundays about 2 months ago. I went twice so far and was happy both times. Nothing too fancy, but just good basic brunch items. Their croque madame is outstanding...

          1. Standard Tap has a very good brunch so long as it's a small group. chalk board menu with only a few items though.

            I've also heard very good things about brunch at North 3rd but never eaten there myself.
