Saturday Brunch best bets....

Since I work every Sunday morning, I've got to get brunch in on Saturday.
Not going to brunch at all isn't an option;)

This past Sat. Lance and I dug into some eggs florentine on Fairmount at the London Grill.
Brunch was good. Service was friendly. They also feature a make your own bloody mary bar for $6.

I opted to have it done for me for $7...which is a tad more than I want to pay for my hangover helper.

Here are some options....
The Abbaye (drink specials!)
Standard Tap
Side Car (home made s c r a p p l e)
Johnny Brenda's (homemade donuts!)
Devil's Den (new at eleven and ellsworth)
South Philly Tap Room (new chef!)
Memphis Tap Room (starting May 11th)
Royal Tavern (always features specials)
Cantina los Cabalitos
Jose Pistolas (amazing bacon!)
Farmacia (also has really good bacon)
N. 3rd (think montecristo)
Jack's Firehouse (have a sly fox stout)
Honeys ( b y o b even for brunch!)

Please feel free to leave a comment with other Saturday egg options (pref. with a bar;)


  1. national mechanics just started serving saturday and sunday brunch this past weekend. i tried the blueberry pancakes, spinach and stawberry salad, and bloody mary shrimp and crab cocktail -- all were excellent.

  2. you forgot abou the ugly american too...much better food than devils den

  3. I'm a big fan of Aspen brunch and their 6 different types of eggs benedict. Also just checked out Cafe Apamate which was super yummy, I even made room for churros y chocolate following my omelet and salad (no bar here tho)

  4. Devil's Alley has a great Saturday brunch, particularly their brioche french toast and delicious raspberry mojitos

  5. Jones, Jones, Jones.

  6. jumping on the fairmount bandwagon...Bridgid's on 24th street just started rolling out a brunch menu....nice assortment of breakfast cocktails too...and the vanilla java porter is a nice finishing touch!
