Weekends are for brunching, and there are so many yummy Philadelphia brunch spots in the area. There are a number of essential places you have to try in Philly. After a long night, brunch is the perfect remedy.

Before we get into the brunch spots you need to try, we need to discuss how awesome this meal is. It’s a combination of breakfast and lunch, arguably the two best meals of the day. You don’t have to get up early to make brunch, either. Most brunch services go into the afternoon.  It’s nothing like when you show up to your favorite fast food joint JUST as they’re switching the breakfast menu over at 11 am sharp. There’s more leeway with brunch. Thank goodness.

Plus, it’s the perfect mix of sweet and savory. Healthy and greasy. You can get pancakes and bacon or avocado toast. You can get a walnut salad or a burger with a fried egg on top. It doesn’t matter. There aren’t restrictions of what flavor profile you should be eating at that time of day. If you want waffles at 1 pm, that’s fine. A grain bowl at 9 am? Sure! It’s so freeing.

These spots in Philly know just how important brunch is in society. That’s why they offer it. If you’re looking to engage in the great concept of brunch, look no further than this list to know where to go.

Here are 7 yummy local brunch spots in the area:
