Green Eggs Cafe… Hipster Diner with Traditional Fare
Sleepy-eyed Philly, its weekend belly growling after a night on the town, used to know exactly where to answer the call for brunch – the neon-lit beacons of diner goodness like the Melrose, Mayfair, and Country Club.
With that diner culture sliding into an alarmingly steep decline over the last decade, however, an entirely new genre has stepped into the a.m. hunger void. The funky bruncherie – part hipster cafe, part laboratory to explore the creative limits of stuffed French toast – has become to the old-school diner what gastropubs have been to aging corner taverns. These are not simply updates to an aging template (although they are also that), but touchstones of urban renewal, where the new and old residents of gentrifying ‘hoods can bond over skillets full of fresh biscuits and sausage gravy and chorizo-stuffed breakfast burritos as big as a piñata.
I have personally eaten here over 10 times and have never had a bad meal. The service is great and their open daily from 8:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. serving breakfast & lunch and is wheelchair accessible.
