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.
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.

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.

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.
