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.
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.
Nice little face, close from downtown and other good beer spots. You walk in and are attracted by the coolers at the end. Yep, pick any beer and have at it or feel free to take it out as well! Not bad for a state with archaic laws. The draught selection was not particularly exciting on the day I visited, but itís still the only place Iíve seen Sculpin at for some reason. You can find bottles from classic great American breweries, but the prices are a match for the quality. Not a priority, but a pretty good spot, basically on the way if you visit Italian Market or Cheesesteak/hoagie quarters from downtown.
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.
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
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!
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.

Update: After a few more visits, need to up my rating. This place is great, but again they need to lower some of their prices on certain brews.
Have visited this place a few times as its a short walk away. Very solid and rotating selection of beers, some warm but most stored in the coolers.(I wanted something warm and the cashier went in the back and found me a bottle) Rotating growler selection but the prce of the growler is high...but they have giveaways every so often that I seem to always miss. Have had dinner here as well as just sat outside for a couple of drinks. Food is decent but pricey. All in all this is a great spot in Bella Vista and I hope it sticks around. The staff are nice and seem to know what they are talking about.
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.
