Well, I move from QV to Bella Vista in a couple of weeks. This is my first home and I'm bouncing off the walls excited. I'm also in the running for a job in Center City (in that giant, ugly building) so the concept of being able to walk to work instead of commuting 1-2 hours each way is making me teary eyed.
Anyway, I'm in the area fairly often for brunch, dinner, Whole Foods, Pho, whatever. However, seeing as how I'll be living there now, are there any recommendations for "regular" types of places for coffee, bars, corner stores, and whatever else?
