Bright, airy and sparsely decorated, the Dutch, located on 4th Street in Pennsport, offers such delectable brunch eats as a cast-iron-cooked “Dutch Baby” pancake (available either sweet or savory) and a crispy Lebanon bologna omelette. Grab a seat by the window and people-watch as you sip on a house-made virgin Bloody Mary.
Finding the best brunch Philadelphia has to offer is a serious business. But while most of us head to the spots with the longest lines (hello, Sabrina‘s and Green Eggs!), savvy diners opt for more under-the-radar eateries that serve up all the things we look for in an ideal brunch experience: atmosphere, tons of coffee and mimosas, and, of course, delicious grub. Follow our guide to the best brunch in Philadelphia to find a mix of these low-key spots—including some of the best new restaurants in Philadelphia—and tried-and-true favorites. If you‘re looking for something lighter, consider ditching the crowds for one of the best bakeries Philadelphia has to offer, or plop down over a steamy cup of java in one of the best local coffee shops.
