I'm coming to Philadelphia Thursday-Friday. Having dinner at Serpico, and am looking for a better alternative to my hotel restaurant for breakfast. My hotel is near Rittenhouse Square. Would love to find something within a 5 block walk. Thanks very much for your recommendations!
I believe a.kitchen does breakfast. The restaurant was taken over by Eli Kulp & Co who recently won a best new chef award from F&W.
Parc does a decent breakfast right on Rittenhouse Square. French bistro, and with good weather you can even dine al fresco overlooking the square.
. For a decent take on jewish Deli you might go to the Famous 4th street Deli which is on 19th Street.
For a light breakfast you might enjoy Spread bagels, which are Montreal style bagels 260 S 20th. They serve decent coffee, and have breakfast sandwiches in addition to bagels.
Coffee/coffee house light breakfast you have La Colombe, Joes, and Ellixir all within walking distance where you can get a good to great pour over and a pastry to go with it.
Weekday breakfast was lovely at Lacroix. Egg white omelette with a choice of half dozen cheeses and half dozen veggies was lovely. La Colombe coffee (which is their standard) is now my favorite. Orange and grapefruit segments were very refreshing. Mini pain au chocolat was a perfect dessert (didn't feel to guilty). Service was very friendly and attentive. The view overlooking Rittenhouse Square was gorgeous. Nothing exotic on the menu; simply standard breakfast fare executed extremely well.
