Best Quick Bites in Rittenhouse Square

Lacroix, in the tony Rittenhouse Hotel, serves a filling Sunday brunch prix-fixe menu ($75 per person) featuring hors d’oeuvres (fried sunchokes with Cubanelle jam; Vietnamese beef broth with quail egg; heirloom tomato Panzanella), raw-bar specialties, signature entrees (grilled Rhode Island squid with sweet corn, lima bean, and green chili), salads, charcuterie, a carving station, and wine pairings. A decadent dessert table rounds out the offerings. 210 Rittenhouse Square, (215) 546-9000, lacroixrestaurant.com

The Love, Aimee Olexy and Stephen Starr's dynamic duo deliver Olexy’s signature style to the Rittenhouse brunch crowd. Playful plates like the bananas Foster waffle with “boozy” rum sauce and the “Posh Brunch” (truffled scrambled eggs, crispy potatoes, spinach) introduce a little homespun elegance to Saturday and Sunday mornings. 130 S. 18th Street, (215) 433-1555, theloverestaurant.com

Mission Taqueria keeps brunch breezy and casual. The contemporary Mexican offerings—a torta with maple-glazed chorizo and pickled jalapeno, huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and shareable snacks like plantain empanadas—can be paired with green-juice margaritas, hibiscus agua fresca, or horchata. 1516 Sansom Street (second floor), (215) 383-1200, missiontaqueria.com

Nineteen (XIX)’s morning buffet atop the Park Hyatt Philadelphia at the Bellevue begins with continental pastries, fruit, smoked meats, and fish, continues with egg and waffle entrees, and concludes with an array of miniature desserts. The whole meal costs $38 per person. Broad & Walnut Streets, 19th floor, (215) 790-1919, hyatt.com/gallery/nineteen

Pub & Kitchen serves what is easily a contender for one of the city’s best Bloody Mary variants, but the spicy Wrangler is only one reason to visit. The menu of modern brunch fare (eggs in purgatory, house-smoked salmon tartine, smothered fried chicken, and biscuits) is tempting enough on its own. 1946 Lombard Street, (215) 545-0350, thepubandkitchen.com

Southgate’s mashup of Korean and American traditions nets excellent results on Sundays. Plates small (kimchi deviled eggs; matcha tea-flavored waffles) and large (bibimbap omelets, a panko-breaded bulgogi burger with smoked chili aioli)pair with soju, pear, and prosecco cocktails. 1801 Lombard Street, (215) 560-8443, southgatephilly.com
