This weekend, a handful of my friends were in Philadelphia for a music festival. As I suffered from FOMO, then realized I hadn’t posted about the amazing brunch I enjoyed in Philly a few months ago.
I heard about Green Eggs Cafe because a few of my friends had posted pictures of their meals on Instagram, so when I finally made my way up to Philly I knew I had to stop by!
My friend and I walked over to the restaurant and saw there was a long wait of locals and visitors, which excited me because that means the food worth the wait! So we explored the area and then returned when our table was ready.
I had looked at the menu prior to arriving and had an idea of what I wanted to order. The waiter also suggested the same dish, the Chicken & Waffles Benedict. I knew I couldn’t pass up on this unique menu item.
I ordered the dish as is and my friend ordered her eggs scrambled and substituted her home fries for fresh fruit. We both ordered a few mimosas as well.
The Benedict was nothing like I had imagined…it was better. It was amazing. The chicken was perfectly crispy…the hot sauce hollandaise was delicious and added a great kick and the maple syrup added a great contrast to all of the flavors. The Rosemary home fries were delicious, my friend ended up eating half of mine!
I would definitely recommend Green Eggs Cafe if you’re ever in Philly! And now, according to their website, they have a location in Miami. And remember, don’t worry about the wait because it is extremely worth it.
