The best places to grab brunch in Philly.
Enjoy a bevy of brunch options like the Autograph Omelet, made with bacon onion jam, goat cheese, oven dried tomatoes and baby spinach with a bellini bouquet for sharing, alongside the many famous faces that line the walls at this suburban gem.
Dig into classic brunch fare—think frittatas, omelets and French toast—or any of Davio’s Italian favorites, like silky spaghetti carbonara, hand-rolled gnocchi in white truffle oil or cannoli pancakes with pistachio, ricotta, chocolate and bitter orange, inside the elegant dining room.
If you’re on the hunt for Philly’s best breakfast sandwiches, look no further than High Street. The acclaimed neighborhood cafe’s housemade artisanal breads are the canvas for signature sammies like the breakfast Reuben on rye, piled high with pastrami, kraut, Russian dressing and Guldens mustard. Be sure to grab a fresh pastry before leaving. After all, there's always room for dessert.
Pretending that you’re in France for an afternoon is easy at Stephen Starr's go-to Parisian brasserie. Start your morning off with breakfast pastries—a combination of flaky croissants, cookie butter brioche, apple turnovers and more—before sampling the French toast with caramelized brandied apples and Chantilly cream or Parc's heavenly warm shrimp salad.
This colorful farm-to-table steakhouse situated on Logan Square goes brunch on the weekends. Try the duck hash— one of the house specialities— for a twist on a classic thanks to duck confit, potato, spinach and a sunny “duck” egg. Belly up to the bar after brunch for signature cocktails like the seasonal sangria.
