Philadelphia is a rising foodie city, placing on nationwide culinary lists. Why not start your day off right by having brunch in the City of Brotherly Love?

Restaurateur Marc Vetri’s Italian gastropub serves up a bold brunch. Items like pigs head hash poutine and chorizo and octopus baked eggs keep adventurous foodies coming back for more. Cocktails are available as well as fresh-squeezed juices and coffee. Brunch is served Sundays from 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

 

Green Eggs Café

The popular brunch eatery focuses on the best seasonal ingredients. Expect to see new menu items often.

There are currently three locations: South Philadelphia, Northern Liberties and Midtown Village.

 

North Third

Located in the hip Northern Liberties neighborhood, North Third brings bar food to brunch with items like wings and sandwiches. Favorites including eggs benedict and omelets are menu staples. The brioche French toast is a standout, whether or not you have a sweet tooth. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m.–3:30 p.m.

Boasting one of the best Bloody Marys in the city, this Rittenhouse Square eatery offers a sophisticated and contemporary brunch. Start your meal with a pub snack like deviled eggs. Pub & Kitchen puts a spin on the classics including smoked duck benedict and arctic char tartine. Brunch is available on Saturdays 11 a.m.–3 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

Stress Management Tips for Dealing With Holiday Travel

While everyone wishes for a holiday season free of stress, hassle and glitches, we all know this isn't a perfect world and something is bound to go wrong, especially when our holiday plans involve travel. Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for travel and that means plenty of opportunity for something to go awry. How we handle those bumps in the road can make or break us, especially when we are already stretched thin thanks to the hectic holiday season.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
