PhillyBite10Philadelphia, PA - With our guide to the best restaurants in Northern Liberties & Fishtown or brunch, you can discover under-the-radar and overlooked joints such as Cafe La Maude's Middle Eastern and Chicken and waffels at Silk City.


  • Honey’s Sit ’N Eat has two homey, quirky brunch-time hideaways—one in Northern Liberties and another in Graduate Hospital. The charm here is the fusion of Southern and Jewish fare: country fried steak, and gravy-soaked biscuits join challah French toast and giant crispy latkes. 800 N. 4th Street, (215) 925-1150; 2101 South Street, (215) 732-5130, honeyssitneat.com
  • Tierce is a breakfast/lunch/brunch-focused Fishtown cafe from the owners of the popular Helm BYOBs. The kitchen here presents a tight menu of classics with chef-y twists, like the bagel egg sandwich with ramp cream cheese and brisket, and creamed chipped prosciutto over pumpernickel bread. 2218 Frankford Avenue, (215) 634-4367, @tiercephilly
  • Cafe La Maude stands out from the usual brunch pack by focusing on bold Lebanese and Middle Eastern dishes, served all day. This Northern Liberties spot is known for green shakshouka, “gypsy eggs” and open-faced Mediterranean burritos served atop grilled pita. 816 N. 4th Street, (267) 318-7869, cafelamaude.com
  • Jerry’s Bar saves the morning after with a round of Buffalo Bloody Mary’s and live jazz music in Northern Liberties. The convivial corner spot tempts with mountains of scrapple and sausage, warm cinnamon cream cheese sticky buns and a fried chicken sandwich with hot honey and charred scallion aioli. 129 W. Laurel Street, (267) 273-1632, jerrysbarphilly.com
  • Sancho Pistola’s not only accommodates mid-day eaters with a fantastic beer selection, but the Fishtown hang also offers some stellar hair of the dog solutions. Entrées like chilaquiles verdes and smoked salmon Reuben can be washed down with margaritas, mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. 19 W. Girard Avenue, (267) 324-3530, sanchopistolas.com
  • Silk City may look like a typical diner on the outside, but it serves up anything but the standard breakfast-brunch items daily from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. And what’s better with smothered chicken and waffles, cider-braised pork belly hash cheese-stuffed corn muffins than one of their specialty brunch cocktails, or a beer from the 30-plus-option bottle and can list? 435 Spring Garden Street, (215) 592-8838, silkcityphilly.com
  • Suraya, a hopping, handsome Fishtown collaboration between the owners of Northern Liberties’ Cafe La Maude and nearby Root Wine Bar has rapidly risen to the top of the hot-ticket brunch list thanks to its selections of intoxicating, egg-topped man’oushe (pizza-like Lebanese flatbreads) and stunningly delicious house-baked French pastries. 1528 Frankford Avenue, (215) 302-1900, surayaphilly.com
  • Wm. Mulherin’s Sons redefines Italian cooking on a daily basis, including weekend mornings. The doughnut egg sandwich with ham and fontina, eggs on volcano (spicy tomato sauce, polenta, guanciale, long hots) and mushroom truffle pizza with Burrata befit the beautifully appointed midcentury modern decor and expertly crafted cocktails. 1355 N. Front Street, (215) 291-1355, wmmulherinssons.com
