Breakfast idea after PHL airport drop off?

eamcd Aug 22, 2008 12:45 PM

Any suggestions for where to go for a good Saturday morning breakfast after dropping off family members at the Philadelphia airport? We'd need to park the car, but would like a decent breakfast (after getting out early)! Diner or other good breakfast recommendations appreciated!

    "Everyone who knows goes to The Melrose" a classic diner in South Philly (Broad and Passyunk) not far from the airport.

      You might try Sabrina's (9-10/Christian). Fabulous breakfast. I take out-of-town friends there and they always have trouble deciding what to order b/c everything sounds so good. It's standard breakfast but with a slight creative twist. Large portions and good coffee.

        Reading Terminal's great...esp. pancakes at the Dutch Eating Place. $3 validated parking across the street for up to two hours.

        Other ideas that may work could be Morning Glory, Sabrina's, or Honey's Sity and Eat but on a Saturday they would involve a long wait.

          I'm always hesitant to reveal this secret, but the new Sabrina's location on 18th and Callohill has the same menu, less wait, and....neighborhood parking.

          Do you have an approximate time and preferred direction (where are you going back to)?

            Good question -- it will be early -- about 8 am and we'll be heading back north. Not sure if we're going back to NJ or will spend the day in Philly with our kids. So we're flexible.

              you will be pretty close to Center City so I would suggest Beau Monde (crepes and outdoor seating not very expensive) at 6 and Bainbridge. check their website for hours but I think they open early. Or the Reading Terminal Market park and forage the market.
