Lex's Top Spots


What you need to know:

Loved this bar! Great atmosphere with live Jazz Band. The chicken and waffles is to die for - the waffles come on skewers which makes my OCD happy! Fantastic cocktail menu.

Market St lex

What you need to know:

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!

parc lex

What you need to know:

For a Philly favorite- the famous French bistro, Parc is the place to go. I had the croque madame and it was pretty good. What really made it worth it was the view of Rittenhouse Square and of course the cocktails. Frose and bourbon make for a damn good Sunday.

What you need to know:

Happy hour at brunch? Yes please. $6 cocktails ranging from Bloody Marys, to mojitos, to espressos cocktails. Farm to table and everything is so fresh. Shrimp and Grits are the #1 item on the menu.

What you need to know:

This all organic restaurant serves and interesting twist on brunch. I had a glass of Chardonnay with my Eggs Benedict. It came over the most interesting potato pancake I've ever seen but still pretty good. Not pictured is the amazing Crispy Tuna Roll we had as an appetizer (also on their regular menu). Whether you go for brunch or dinner you have to try Fare!

What you need to know:

This place is the hangover cure - three Bloody Mary options and the most incredible Eggs Benedict. The Brewpub will bring you back to life after a long night turned early morning!
