Are you looking to improve your diet in the new year? Thankfully, Philadelphia is home to plenty of incredible restaurants that serve both ambiance and fresh, healthy food options for any palate. We’re listing five spots we love for clean eating and healthy living right here in the city of brotherly love!
Known for their extensive variety and creative menus, Vedge leads the game in vegetarian and vegan delights. The menu changes with the seasons, and the kitchen imports all ingredients from local farms. Even the dessert is healthy – we recommend the Persian Love cake, a sweet cardamom cake with lavender ice cream and pistachio.
2. Miles Table
Miles Table is the South Street go-to for coziness and guaranteed fresh ingredients. Locally sourced meats and produce guarantee the perfect breakfast sandwich, while we also recommend the classic burger and fries. Simplicity is where Miles Table excels, and there’s a satisfaction in knowing where your food comes from.
3. Charlie was a sinner.
This trendy, vegan cafe/bar is the perfect place to indulge (or should we say sin) guilt-free! While most of the small plates are plant-based, everything is vegan and locally sourced. The drinks are notoriously strong (but also strangely still relatively healthy), and served in a dark, incredibly Instagram-able setting.
4. Good Spoon Soupery
This Fishtown soupery is perfect for the winter season, serving up plenty of cozy flavors in a variety of soups, stews, chowders, and the like. Good Spoon offers sandwiches and salads on the side as well, and is one of our favorite cafes solely due to how bright and warm it is inside! If you want to indulge in some comfort food while also remaining healthy, Good Spoon is the place for you.
5. Talula's Garden
Talula’s Garden is an incredibly chic clean eating option, offering upscale cuisine in a gorgeous, rustic farmhouse scene. Guests can visit the blooming garden in the spring and summer, and can still enjoy the farmhouse during the rest of the year. We love how cozy the space is, and highly recommend the cheddar chive biscuits. If clean eating tasting this good is wrong, we don’t want to be right!
