If you love chocolate, hit Max Brenner in Center City for dessert. Skip their real food as it’s just OK, certainly not worth the price. Their desserts are drool-worthy, though. Cuba Libre in Old City has an amazing variety of mojitos and delicious Cuban food. Try the Cafe Cubano, a shot of sweetened espresso. Best espresso I’ve ever had!

If you’re into shopping, they have a big Anthropologie in Rittenhouse Square, which I belive is their flagship store. Rittenhouse Square is a lovely area to wander around, lots of shops and restaurants. The store’s in a beautiful historic building.

sporkette:  I highly recommend Silk City diner. It’s in northern liberties and is so delicious! We usually go for brunch but dinner is amazing too.

Second Rittenhouse Square/Center City area!  I didn’t get to do this while I was in Philly in May but apparently Jose Garces has food trucks at the spruce street harbor park.. it just opened, and it’s supposed to be really cool!  You can also do the touristy things (I know you said not to recommend that but I am )… Liberty Bell, City Hall, rocky statue, boathouse row, get a philly cheese steak, go to Reading Terminal… etc!  Philly is a cool city!

Silk City Diner is awesome, I just moved out of the Northern Liberties area, but I loved it there! If you like brunch, check out Cafe La Maude. It is AMAZING, and Northern Liberties is a pretty artsy/hispter type of area. If you want to go a little more fancy, i’d say Alma De Cuba, great place. Also for dessert, check out Franklin Fountain in Old City, the creamiest most amazing ice cream you will ever have. If you want to go for shock factor, I’d say R2L, it is on the 37th floor of a skyscraper and make sure you go right before sunset and request a table on the west side to get the best view. A good breakfast place is La Croix in the Rittenhouse Hotel. Also if you’re just looking for a quick meal, lunch perhaps, check out Di Bruno Bros. They have a few locations throughout the city and they have the best cheeses and prosciutto you’ll ever eat and really good sandwiches/salads/lunch type of things. Reading Terminal Market has some pretty great places as well. Good luck!! Enjoy Philly, it truly is a great city with amazing food.

SkydiverGF:  Oh yeah, I completely forgot about Reading Terminal Market. I could spend an entire day there getting fat!
