Breakfast on a Thursday in West Philly
I looked on the board and either I didn't have the right search terms or no one eats breakfast worth talking about in West Philly.
I need a sit down place that nice. I asked one person and they said if I had a car to go to Yock's at 57th and Chestnut for grits. I already know about Marathon and the Diner. What else is out there?
It needs to be open by 8:30.
Thanks for any help you can give!
Pier One Cafe on 45th and Baltimore is a small place and not fancy, but they have a full menu of eggs, etc. Service is pretty much one person cooking and serving, so be patient.
a little different from what you might be thinking of. by Kaffa Cafe on 44/45 and Chestnut is really good Ethiopian in a nice coffee shop setting. Problem is, they have like 3 choices for breakfast: eggs, fava bean stew, or a combo of the 2. They have good coffee though. not sure when it opens.
worst case -- Philly Diner, 39thish and Walnut. Huge and greasy and not spectacular food, but at least it will be open.
The Restaurant School at 42nd & Walnut sells pastries and good coffee. They also have a person making omelets and pancakes/waffles in the courtyard. And it's cheap! the omelets are $5, I think, comes with potatoes and bacon. And I believe they're open by 7am.
