I had brunch at Cuba Libre in Old City (walking distance, we were staying farther away than 12th & Market and still walked).  It was delicious.  The restaurant is very cute as well.

There’s a wonderful crepe place called Beau Monde on 6th and Bainbridge.  It’s kind of far from your hotel (definitely walkable, though some people would probably prefer a cab – but no further than Cuba Libre, I think) but totally worth going to.  It’s a little pricey, though, so if your family is large, the $$$ could add up quickly.

We just booked ours at the Continental Midtown – 18th and Chestnut.  They were great to deal with!

Sabrina’s and Cafe Estelle are both wonderful brunch spots, but I’m not sure if either could accomodate a large group, although it might be worth a phone call.  But they’d be a little out of the way for you too, I guess.

Try Marathon Grill, they have several locations in Center City and I’m sure if you call ahead they can accomodate a big group.  And their brunch is good.  Continental Midtown is also a good suggestion.

Parc is a good place for brunch, right near Rittenhouse Square.

Try Mixto on 11th and Pine (I think it’s 11th, might be 12th). It’s Cuban food so a bit different but the prices are insanely reasonable and the food is delicious.  Plus they have all the brunch classics with a bit of a twist.  Still very walkable from the Marriott and they have a large 2nd floor that is so really nicely decorate and you could have the whole party there. 

The Marathon Grill and Beaumonde are great but depending on the size of your brunch it might be hard to have everyone in one place.  Plus with Marathon, while I like their food, their service is notoriously slow.

I heart brunch!!!

Cuba Libre is very yummy but on the sweet side

Sabrina’s – huge portions!! and open early (i think 7am) You’ll have to call a head, I do recommend that you come to the fairmount location, instead of the south phila location, b/c the floor layout will be more accomdating and less cramped.

Mixto – very yummy, and again open early (I often go here with my parnets). They have a great menu and their bread is addictive! Definatly can accomendate #, in fact they may be able to open up the upstair for you. Call ahead

Jones (8th and chestnut) – you get tator tots… enough said!

Parc – very yummy, great portion side (howeve small to some)… I like this in the warm months so you can sit outside, we often have to dog with us when we go here.


I know you already picked… but there is a list for furture brides.
