Breakfast near Pennsy Hospital

Hubby is having surgery tomorrow morning... have to be there at 5:30am! Any suggestions for a breakfast, possibly lunch, place? By that point I'll be starving, so anything good will do.
As always, thanks for the help!

  1. Do you mean Pennsylvania Hospital?

    The Tenth St Pourhouse, on 10th between Locust and Spruce is a nice little breakfast place. There is also the Marathon Grill at 10th & Walnut which is reliable even if it's not excellent.

    Spruce St Espresso, at 11th & Spruce, has great coffee and small food items. I'm not sure how elaborate the food gets as I've never eaten anything there, but it is the best coffee and espresso you will find around there.

    For something a little nicer, Kanella (Cypriot/Greek) at 10th & Spruce has an amazing and affordable lunch menu.

      Thank you! With all the rain, I had to stay at the hospital most of the day. I'll have to keep those places in mind for better weather!
