Late for a meeting or just need a quick bite to eat? Stop by the pastry counter, and grab a coffee with a spelt and raspberry jam scone. Have some time to spare, or want to work on that ten-page term paper? Sit by the windows or in the dining room, watch the passersby, read a newspaper or your Kindle at the café and enjoy a sit-down breakfast. The open-kitchen layout allows for an easy-going and casual atmosphere perfect for the morning. Guests of the versatile eatery can also stop by on the weekend for a decadent brunch. Every Sunday, the café has live jazz music for brunch-goers to listen to as they sip on mimosas.
Guests can enjoy the American-style menu, designed by the renowned Chef Daniel Eddy, inside or outside on the patio. Lunch includes not only a raw bar but also a 30-minute dining option for those who are pressed for time. Guests and residents of FMC, the first vertical neighborhood, who don’t want to leave their homes with their exquisite high-rise view of the city, can opt for an in-room dining option. Whether you are eating in or picking up, the menu was created to cater to each guest’s particular tastes and likings.
The Walnut Street Café morphs from a pastry counter by day to a fully stocked bar by night with a wine menu hand-picked by wine connoisseur Patrick Cappiello. Professors from the nearby universities, young professionals, locals and travelers alike can sip on refreshing beverages from the happy hour menu, including some delicious classic bar appetizer snacks, such as a Pretzel with Beer Cheese, or Korean BBQ Wings. The Walnut Street Café provides guests who prefer a quieter or more intimate setting seating upstairs in the mezzanine, which overlooks the café. The open space of the eatery makes it an excellent venue for private dining and/or business meetings, parties, as well as banquets.
Patrick Cappiello, Daniel Eddy and Branden McRill, the owners of the Philly eatery, are all about pleasing their guests and allowing them to choose the type of dining experience they want to have at the café. A guest can come in the morning for a quick coffee and then come back in the evening with some friends for happy hour and a sit-down dinner. The diversity of the menu and its outstanding location make the Walnut Street Café the perfect place to enjoy your next meal, whatever time of day or night.
