A good option for starting the day early with food and beer. The breakfast sandwiches are good. The fridge is stocked up with interesting singles and can be opened at the cafe or take away. Growler fills also available. Attentive service and worth stopping by to have a look.

Stopped in for brunch during Philly Beer Week. Had to wait maybe an hour but we had a large group. While waiting I had time to peruse the beer coolers and they had a very nice selection, albeit maybe a little high on prices. The entire brunch menu sounded fabulous and not one of the eight people I was with had a complaint about their meal. Would definitely go back.

Went for sunday brunch....45 min wait was well worth it! Fabulous chicken and waffles...cant wait to eat it again. Decent draft list and a very nice bottle selection. Little loud in there but a nice homey warm place. Service was great except for the irritable busser with the 1980s michael keaton fanclub looking baseball hat...total dick. Gave me shit twice for standing and drinking while waiting for my table when there really was very little room to stand in/around the crowded little bottle shop. Screw him...he is the only downside. Get the chicken and waffles!

a great place to stop by for a good meal or just beer to go. Nice country summer feel to the place equipped with a wall of beer refrigerators in the back corner. Great draft selection as well. Friendly staff.

This place has more of a deli feel to it, with very tasty and creative sandwiches, a solid tap list - including two Cigar City drafts - and a very impressive bottle selection that you can drink on site or take away - for a discount. Prices are a bit higher than elsewhere for some things, but not everything. Service is absolutely stellar, I couldnít ask for anything more. A must-try in Philly.

I stopped in here after I went to Bella Vista. This was my first trip here. Upon entering it appears to be a nice mix of bottle shop and small cafe. I went straight to the bottle shop area and, while it wasnít amazing, I was pleased with what I saw. They had signs above each door of the cooler telling you where the beers inside where from. From what I could tell most of the beers were fresh. Plenty of classic staples with a few "rarities" thrown in. I noticed they had a few bottles of Marrůn Acidifiť and I was wondering how they had lasted that long until I saw the $30+ price tag. No chance I would pay that much for that one. Most of the other bottles seemed to be priced right around where they should be. I picked up a few bottles for the cellar and it only set me back around $20. Service was good. I was asked if I needed help by three different people. The guy I talked to knew a good bit about most of the beers I asked about. I didnít have time to eat but the menu looked pretty good. I will have to return in the future and try the food.

A very nice cafe type restaurant in south Philly. IMHO, the only thing missing ambiance wise is a bar - itís all table seating. From what we read prior to going, service could be hit or miss - ours was very miss. The food was good but not spectacular (which is disappointing after seeing all their pics on Facebook). The burger was overcooked, and my dessert (bread pudding) was thoroughly meh. The tap selection is small, but did have some gems Iíve never seen before. The bottle selection was very good - almost up there with Capones. Pricing on the bottles was ok - 15% off if you got 8 (or something like that). Iíd probably go again for bottles and beer, but would only eat if hungry and didnít feel like going someplace else.

Right across the street from Bella Vista beer and north of Devils Den ... Nice clean bright atmosphere more like a coffee shop/deli look than a bar but was a nice change of pace .... 8 taps 12 growler fills and a organized and priced cooler in the back that had lots of west coast and an awesome door of belgians that you donít see around often .... the food was great had the short rib tacos and my pal had the french quarter .... the staff was knowledgeable and friendly ... the prices for draft were $6-$8, entrees $13-$16 and burgers for $10 good selection of pickies as well .... all in all iíd definitely come here again
