I realize there are tons of places in almost every neighborhood around Center City, Univ City, and South Philly that serve weekend brunch. But what's a good bet for a fine brunch for someone's special birthday this weekend? For a party of 8 to 10.
All the popular places don't take reservations, but you generally call the morning of and show up an hour or so later and they generally can make room for you if you can get there before or after the peak brunch hour. I've not had huge issues with getting a table at Green Eggs (South Philly location), although Sabrina's in Italian Market is almost always a tough job to snag a table especially for a bigger party.
Kanella's is good but likely not the choice for this group. How is Farmicia in Old City? Heard it's pretty great for brunch, but I'm not sure. How is Ants Pants Cafe in G-Ho?
Any suggestions welcome. Just want easy access to the space for two people coming by car and others who will likely be walking or taking transit... which is why I'm thinking perhaps West Philly may be better, also perhaps bigger space that can easily accommodate parties of 10+...
Thanks in advance!
