Emily: "Sabrina's cafe is so warm and cozy, and there is a food option for everyone's dietary needs! I love a place that welcomes all diets. The weekends can be very busy, so I advise checking in to the waitlist through the Yelp app and seeing the wait time. Sabrina's makes my favorite tofu scramble. No one, not even myself, can make it better. The tofu scramble is flavorful and comes with fresh breakfast potatoes and toast. Always get breakfast potatoes when you go to Sabrina's. Sabrina's also has other vegan options, but the tofu scramble is my favorite by far."

Erin: "Cafe Lift is another wait for it.. *BYOB* Spot. So again, bring your Prosecco and Champ. They don't take reservations so prepare for a wait in peak hours.. and Cash only! Cafe Lift is a hip, urban/industrial looking spot with a packed menu. Dishes to try here are the lemon ricotta pancakes, cannoli french toast and the Huevos Rancheros."

Georgie: "The atmosphere is super cute; like stepping into a Parisian cafe! Yes, the prices are a little hefty (i.e. $18 for pancakes), however, everything is totally worth the higher price tag. Their lemon ricotta pancakes with poached apples, pistachios, white chocolate and caramel are some of the best pancakes I've ever had! Be sure to get there before 10am or you'll have to fight the crowds and wait a bit!"

Georgie: "It's a classic! If you have friends visiting from out of town, I highly recommend this spot for a brunch they won't forget! I personally love the South Philly location best. The food is amazing of course (I'm a huge fan of the red velvet pancakes!), the portions are huge so you won't leave hungry, and many items are very "instagrammable"

Lexy: "I'm a skeptic for brunch places in hotels because they are usually overpriced and mediocre but this place knocked my socks off. They. have. a. Bread. Bar. All types of breads and carbs that are complimentary for diners. They also have a great mango sorbet mimosa!"

Austin: "Awesome date night spot! Get a spot at the chef's counter if you can. Watching the chef work his magic is a nice little bonus to the already incredible food. Highly recommend the grilled octopus! **Cash only"

Austin: "Russet screams homemade and fresh (seasonal ingredients) made with love in an cozy atmosphere you're sure to love. It sounds cliche but you seriously can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Be sure to check their website ahead of time for the ingredients they're currently featuring along with recommendations of wines to bring that will pair nicely."
