Looking for brunch convenient to I-95

We are meeting a group of people, some coming north on I-95, some coming south, all meeting near downtown. Any recommendations for a brunch place that could accommodate 17 people. Nothing too exotic or spicy. Thanks in advance..

  1. The Plough & The Stars might fit the bill. I've enjoyed brunch there with a group.

    They decorate their historic building beautifully for the holidays. The view is best from upstairs.

      I wasn't impressed with Plough's Brunch. I much prefer their dinner instead. Go to The Continental or Sabrina's for Brunch! The best in Philly and close to 95.

        You might wait three days for a table of 17 at Sabrina's. You'd be better off with somewhere you can make reservations for large parties. Perhaps Standard Tap would have the space for you and would take a reservation for a large party? I'd say Cafe Estelle, but I'm not sure if they could do 17. Farmicia in Old City might work.

    2. Pretty much all of Center City, South Philly and Northern Liberties are convenient to 95. What day of the week is this? Some places only have weekend brunch, but the smaller brunch-specialty places get packed on the weekends but are open during the week.

      1. I'd say Cafe estelle or North 3rd - both in No Liberties or Beau Monde in Queen Village (which will take a reservation)
