Ultimate Guide For Brunch in Philadelphia

friends enjoying bunch of delicious food on the table

For those who don’t know, brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch, usually served from 11 am and 3 pm. It’s typically a combination of sweet and savory foods, but there are no complex rules about what brunch should include.

 

Brunch is most commonly served in restaurants, but it can also be performed at home. However, brunch doesn’t have the same recognition as dinner or lunch for some reason. The Sunday brunch scene in Philadelphia is alive and well. There are many good options to choose from. However, you’ll have to decide for yourself what is best for your tastes and budget.

1. Carnevino

 

 

This place is one of the best places for brunch. It’s a restaurant located in the heart of Philadelphia, on the east side of Broad Street, close to South Street. Brunch can be served Monday to Friday from 11 am-4 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 are-4pm. The brunch menu includes an egg buffet (with omelets made to order), breakfast focaccia bread, oven-baked potatoes, bacon-wrapped hot dogs (my favorite), grilled salmon, crab Benedict and much more. This place is not cheap, but it’s worth the money.
