Here's Where We Love to Grab Breakfast in Philadelphia

Starting the day out on the right foot sometimes comes down to simply getting breakfast right. When the same-old, same-old just won't measure up another day, it's great to have options. The city of Philadelphia offers many breakfast venues that rise to the occasion. Start with a great cup of coffee or other preferred beverage, move on to the delicious main course offerings, perhaps sample a sweet treat or two, and enjoy the break from shopping, cooking and cleaning up for a change. When finished, sit back and enjoy the fact that the day has begun in a great way and promises to continue its uphill swing. With venues such as Northern Liberties' Honey's Sit n Eat to La Croix at the Rittenhouse with wonderful, upscale dining that'll start the day off right. No matter which neighborhood lies within reach, there's sure to be a place nearby with choices that appeal to the morning person or the not-so-morning-person. Stay close to home or mix it up an d venture a little out of that comfort zone to sample some variety. There are no shortage of spots to pick from, whether its a small venue that's preferred or a larger restaurant. Get there, sit down, inhale, relax and dive in.
