10 Places To Eat In Philly!

Philly is the best foodie city to explore. Whether it’s impromptu happy hours, romantic date nights, co-working at the coffee shop on the corner, or having an unforgettable girls night out, there’s SO much to discover!! Let’s get into some Philly Local Love List: 10 Places To Eat Through The City!🍱🍔🥟🍸

Tela's Market in Fairmount

Talk about doing it right. Tela’s Market in Fairmount is just one of those places you can spend your entire day. Grab a coffee and work from the cozy couch in the back or enjoy the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich at lunch with a friend. And when the sun sets, the warmth really comes alive for dinner. Do yourself a favor and get a vanilla chai latte with oat milk, you’re welcome.

1833 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130


Winnie’s Manayunk

Main Street in Manayunk hosts a sea of great places to hit. If you’re looking for a cozy spot to get an early breakfast here’s your place. Their avocado toast is decadent and they will win your heart with not only their amazing service but that Irish coffee!

I know your mouth is already watering. Dare to try the cocktail of the day and then head over to Graffiti bar. This back of house oasis get’s packed fast so be sure to grab a seat. While your there, share a scorpion bowl with a friend—or two! And when it comes to the crab ragoon, go ahead and order two plates!

The flavors of this place were unmatched.  The shaw muang is EXPLODING with flavor. Enjoy entrees like the pu pad pong karee (colossal crab meat with chili oil, egg, chinese celery and crab roe, served with jasmine rice) and nua pad prik noom (peppercorn beef tendorloin with long hots, scallion, and onions, served with jasmine rice). 

The food, ambiance, and service here was impeccable.  Don’t be afraid to ask your server for their recommendations, because mine didn’t disappoint!

La Fontana Della Citta

This BYOB will change your life! This authenticity of this Italian kitchen will turn into your absolute favorite. For any occasion big or small, they always seem to be able to fit you in! My recs? Everything! But absolutely try the mussels (in white wine sauce), calamari, and my ultimate favorite the lobster ravioli. The place is LIVELY, so if you want a quiet candle lit dinner, try the next spot!

DePaul’s Table

This place’s ambiance, food, and service is top notch.

A small drive to Ardmore will seat you in the beautiful space that’s perfect for a special occasion, date night, or even if you’re trying to wow a client. Now please, a moment of silence for the seafood Mac & cheese— trust me! It’s that serious. The chefs know how to cook a filet to perfection and no different case for the double cut rib lamb chops!

Jeni's Icecream

Who would you be if you didn’t finish the night with something sweet? Jeni’s ice cream has an explosion of flavors AND fresh waffle cones coming out by the second. I recommend sharing because the ice cream is very rich, but of course delicious.
