April NativX Hit List | The places that made the most noise in April

This month, the NativX community was all over Philly - must be because the weather was getting nice. There were a select few that really made some noise in the month of April. Check out to see if you've been to any!

Each of our Natives specializes in a specific category like craft beer, fun dates, or boozy brunch. They have a deep understanding of each place they recommend to help you make a decision on what place fits you best. We ONLY show places that the Natives have vouched for and love!


Cafe Lift

Address: 428 N 13th St, Philadelphia, PA 19123

Erin | Philly Boozy Brunch Native:
"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."

Address: 436 E Girard Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125

Brenden | Philly Brewery Native:
"This is a new brewery that specializes in ciders. Located Fishtown, it’s a great change of pace for brewery fans - and also a great compromise for those that don’t like beer. They serve quality craft ciders that aren’t like the sugary mainstream ciders. They have recently switched to serving coffee, cider, and beer! Hang at the bar or sit down at the tables upstairs. Open Wednesday to Sunday."

High Street on Market

Address: 308 Market St, Philadelphia, PA 19106

Lexy | Philly Group Brunch Native:
"As soon as you step into this cafe you feel like you are in your grandmother's kitchen. Fresh baked bread, great cocktails, and rich coffee. I had the avocado toast on a baguette which was to die for. A must go before shopping in the city!"

Caitlin - @phillybrunchbabe | Philly Brunch Native:
"Heritage is a bar with an extensive draft list and live music, so I was not expecting to be as blown away as I was when I first tried it. They are dishing out amazing brunch! The space is also great, as it is bright, open and inviting. Get the dutch baby. You will not regret it."

Georgie - @the_lone_bruncher | Philly Solo Brunch Native:
"The hype is legit people! From the moment you walk into Suraya, you know it’s special. As a former interior designer, I’m obsessed with the gorgeous Moroccan tiles and lighting. I can say with absolute certainty that their Lebanese chai latte is the best chai latte I’ve ever had, no joke! Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s stunning, as it is served in a colorful Turkish mug and topped with rose petals! I also highly recommend the Baba Ganoush, the rose/pistachio cruller, and any of the flatbreads! Make a ressie, because this place is always bumpin!"

Tredici Enoteca

Address: 13th & Sansom 

Ian | Philly Wine Native:
"On the same street as Jamonera and a spin-off of Zavino – wine crawl anyone? – Tredici has a modern and open atmosphere. It has a large wine selection that can get pretty intimidating, but they know their shit so just ask."

Address: 9 W Girard Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19123

Josh - @josheatsphilly | Philly Foodie Native:
"The flavors that Weckerly's offers make it unique amongst ice cream shops in Philadelphia. All of their products are natural, authentic, and delicious. I definitely recommend trying one of their ice cream sandwiches!"

El Vez

Address: 121 S 13th Street

Erin | Philly Boozy Brunch Native:
"El Vez is one of my favorite brunch spots in Philly, and many people don't know they even offer brunch! Brunch is only served on Sundays and starts at 11 am. I would get there fairly early in the afternoon as this place fills up quick. They have an awesome Mexican brunch menu ,and you can order from the regular dinner menu too.

As far as the vibes go, it is a swanky space with big, velvet booths that are great for bigger groups! El Vez is Complete with a rotating bicycle on the bar and polaroid pics pasted all over the wall for a fun vibe."

Ultimo Coffee

Address: Multiple Locations

Callie | Philly Coffee Native:
"I love Ultimo Rittenhouse because their Baristas are welcoming, helpful, and knowledgable and you can tell that this business really cares about the quality of their coffee! You can taste it too!"

Franklin Bar

Address: 112 S 18th St, Philadelphia, PA 19103

PhillyGrub | Philly Foodie Native:
"The Upstairs Bar at The Franklin Bar is a tiki bar, the only one in Philadelphia right now. If you love tropical drinks & decor, this is the place for you!"

*NativX Madness Brunch Champion*

Caitlin - @phillybrunchbabe | Philly Brunch Native:
"Round up all your friends and make a reservation for THE TROUGH. It's actually what it sounds like - a giant smorgasbord of eggs, pancakes, meats, etc. that serves 6-8 people. Reserve in advance!"
