Fishtown is the industrial neighborhood of Philadelphia, teeming with artists, musicians and creatives who are steadily converting the old industrial buildings into the perfect brunch destinations, with just the right amount of vintage touch. Did you know – Culture Trip now does bookable, small-group trips? Pick from authentic, immersive Epic Trips, compact and action-packed Mini Trips and sparkling, expansive Sailing Trips.

Green Eggs Cafe


Green Eggs Cafe prides itself on being environmentally conscious and prohibits the use of styrofoam or disposable plastic in the facility. Many of the menu’s ingredients are locally sourced and the restaurant composts its waste. Green Eggs serves a hearty brunch, breakfast, and lunch, with menu items like the red velvet pancakes and the creme brulee French toast gaining quite a reputation.

Milkcrate Cafe

Milkcrate Cafe is every music junkie’s dream; a cafe record shop combination. With vinyls used as decor and the outside of the cafe painted to look like one giant record, it’s hard to miss. The baked goods come from LeBus and the coffee from La Colombe, guaranteeing delicious eats. If the combination of records and baked goods is not enticing, this may not be the place for you. However, if you enjoy an early morning cup of joe with eggs on a bagel or a breakfast burrito while browsing an amazing record collection, this is your spot.

Cafe La Maude

Lebanese labneh

Cafe La Maude is lovely, with seating outdoors beneath a black and white striped awning and a clean, bright interior. The cuisine is French and Lebanese inspired and beautifully presented. The Parisian zá is a must try, as are the gypsy eggs, scrumptious and unique like the rest of Cafe La Maude’s menu items. Customer service is phenomenal as well. The food, atmosphere, and service will not disappoint.

Lloyd Whiskey Bar

Lloyd Whiskey Bar is a trendy hot spot for those more particular about their drinks and their food. The Lloyd Sunday brunch includes a variety of draft beers, as well as the notorious fried deviled eggs and the rib eye eggs Benedict. Unlike many of Fishtown’s brunch spots, Lloyd Whiskey Bar doesn’t become terribly crowded, so if you are looking for a more low-key but tasty, high quality brunch Lloyd Whiskey Bar is your place.

Honey’s Sit ‘n Eat

Honey’s Sit ‘n Eat is a Fishtown favorite. The menu offers a delicious blend of Jewish and American south comfort foods. Both indoor and outdoor seating options are available, depending on the weather, and a long wait upon arrival for breakfast is almost always a guarantee (Honey’s does not take reservations). This vegetarian friendly restaurant makes it a hipster hangout, but there is food to satisfy every palate, vegetarian or otherwise.

N. 3rd

N. 3rd resides in a red brick building with a hip atmosphere. The interior is comprised of images of the female form, masks on the walls, and twinkle lights. N. 3rd prides itself on its menu, from unique salad selections like the Bibb salad and the beet salad to the array of omelettes. Outdoor seating is available in warmer months and you will find N. 3rd to be a phenomenal stop if you’re looking for a casual, inexpensive brunch with friends in a nice atmosphere. Enjoy brunch with a blood orange margarita in this Fishtown spot.

Cantina Dos Segundos

Vegan burrito. Sliced up raw food wrap with vegan ingredients on a plate.

Cantina Dos Segundos is vibrant with color, from the orange ceilings and walls to the colorful menu. If the atmosphere and hipster crowd fail to seduce you, the breakfast burrito with an obligatory glass of bloody Maria or mimosa will. The atmosphere and the food make this an absolute must when brunching in Fishtown, particularly on a sunny morning when the room is set aglow.
