Best Brunch Spots In Philly

By Philadelphia Bucket List

Where breakfast meets lunch meets...mimosas. 🍾


Published February 21, 2020

Brunch: a word that makes millions of millennials' eyes light up. Brunch is the reason we can’t afford houses, why Monday mornings suck, and where all our hard-earned exercise and dieting habits fly out the door, yet somehow we return every weekend craving a breakfast burrito featuring extra cheesy potatoes. Philadelphia isn’t lacking when it comes to brunch, so we’ve rounded up a list of the 11 best spots for you to fill your stomachs, empty your wallets, and excuse all adulting activities for the rest of the day.

What happens when a Texan and Philadelphian fall in love? They combine their foodie brain power, and create a mouth-watering Southern style spot called, Honey’s Sit n Eat. With two locations in the city, Honey’s is a popular, cash-only joint for Southern style grub such as chilli, biscuit sandwiches, fried green tomatoes, and black eyed peas that can be added to just about anything on the menu.

A brunch place so nice, you have to go twice (or way more than that). There’s locations all over the city and suburbs, but that doesn’t stop the lines from piling up outside Sabrina’s on the weekend. Prepare your tastebuds for some funky meals with names like, “Gotta Catch ‘Em All Breakfast Special,” and “Snooki Steak N’ Eggs.” We’d explain what these meals entail, but we’ll let the long lines speak for themselves. Whatever they're cookin’ over at Sabrina’s, it’s good!
Boozy Tip: BYOB.

There are many facets to Philly, but unfortunately bottomless brunch is not one of them. Luckily, White Dog Cafe knows what the people need - they offer $18 bottomless bloodys and mimosas with the purchase of an entree. White Dog Cafe is the first restaurant in Philly to use sustainable, organic, and local farm-to-table foods, and has rave reviews from customers. Check out their University City location or head to one of their two suburban spots.

While bottomless brunch may not be a trend in Philadelphia (blame those liquor laws), BYOB restaurants thankfully are! This no-frills, Spring Arts cafe is a Philly staple known for rotating kombucha drafts, a delicious breakfast burrito, and industrial interior.

Boozy Tip: BYOB.

If there’s one thing to say about North Third, it’s that they know how to get creative. Don’t get us wrong, they have all the staples, but they’ll surprise you with new, innovative specials each week. Make room for salmon deviled eggs, the monte cristo sandwich, and raspberry beret (S.O. to Prince) French toast to name a few. Head on in and be sure to check out their art collection, because nothing makes a meal better than staring at the giant colorful eagle hovering over you (you’ll have to see for yourself)!

MOUTH. IS. WATERING.

Since opening in 2004, the female owned Ants Pants Cafe serves as an Aussie-inspired neighborhood cafe/brunch spot for friends to sit down, relax, and enjoy a cup of coffee and a good meal. Ants Pants Cafe serves food that would be found in any Aussie cafe such as vegemite on some sandwiches and Aussie iced coffee (an ice cream and coffee blend) - YUM. Ants Pants encourages guests to embody the Aussie spirit surrounding the notion, “it’s all good,” - our guess is that they’re referring to the vibes and the food.
