By the Editors | March 11, 2020 | Food & Drink

Your sweet tooth couldn't be happier.


The French toast at Parc

1. Aqimero

Endless bubbles are the name of the game at Richard Sandoval’s Latin-inspired restaurant thanks to a bottomless brunch. Besides the seasonal French toast, try sweet pastries like cinnamon rolls. 10 Avenue of the Arts, 215.523.8200,

2. High Street on Market

Start your day with one of High Street’s celebrated breakfast sandwiches, like the Italian Market Breakfast...just don’t forget to grab a signature sweet on your way out. 308 Market St., 215.625.0988,

3. The Love

Since opening in 2017, the Rittenhouse hot spot has raised the bar in the world of brunch. Think lemon poppy pancakes, lox boards and—of course—warm gingerbread madeleines with pillowy orange whipped cream. 130 S. 18th St., 215.433.1555,

4. Parc

A ham and Gruyere croissant makes the classic French pastry a flaky savory treat, while an apple butter morning bun pairs perfectly with a cappuccino. 227 S. 18th St., 215.545.2262,

5. Sandler’s on 9th

Visit the land of confections at Sandler’s on 9th, where Fat Elvis pancakes topped with Nutella, chocolate crunch and tempura bananas lord over breakfast and brunch tables. 834 Chestnut St., 215.634.9800,

6. Talula's Garden

This Stephen Starr and Aimee Olexy collab is where hot doughnut munchkins with lemon curd, blueberry jam, whipped cream and lavender sugar happily supplement your brunch bread bowl. 210 W. Washington Square, 215.592.7787,
