Speaking of brunch, I am finally trying Sprig & Vine for brunch this Sunday...I am very excited, I have heard nothing but amazing things about this place. The menu sounds great too, I don't know what to get. Does anybody know if I need to make reservations for brunch? Does it tend to be busy?


Yay! Their brunch is awesome. Brunch (as well as dinner) there can get kind of busy..I'd make a reservation just in case.

I also got the Blackbird tofu cubano for lunch today. So perfect..definitely tied with the BBQ portobello sandwich for yummiest sandwich. Unfortunately I'm not that into their seitan cheesesteak..but there are plenty of other choices!!

A Full Plate's french toast is amazing. And it's in my neighborhood! Speaking of french toast in my neighborhood, Dos Segundos makes a pretty good one. REALLY sweet though, kind of like a funnel cake.

Yech, Mi-Lah is so overpriced for such gross food. I've never had any bad service experiences like any of you, just inedible food that I paid too much for. I tried the tofu omlette, and wow..it had this weird cheese on it, the mushrooms tasted funky and it was covered in a thick layer of grease. My boyfriend on the other hand had the yards beer battered seitan and waffles, which was good, but nothing I'd write home about.


i wanted to like mi lah, but their hiring practices are incredibly shady. (but it could have just been that they were new, and the manager was inexperienced) but i was hired for one day, as a baker (made due with their bad setup/lack of equipment/lack of needed ingredients for what they wanted me to make. i had to make apple juice from partially gross apples!!! i should have been able to open a bottle and go from there.)

then they called me and said they weren't cleared to hire a new employee. then a week later there was an ad on craigslist for a sous chef. (they then paid me a rate that i hadn't agreed to. the train fare took 50%+ of what i made, since i needed to take the train from jersey 6 times for essentially 1 day of work. i should have told them to mail it. even though it was in cash.)

i don't know if they still make the scrapple, but i had some that first month after they opened, and it was really very much what i remember it like growing up. maybe the chef that created that recipe is no-longer there.

They seem to be just a wet batter rather than a slice of bread dipped into a eggless wash.

Cantina/A Full Plate have the two best french toast dishes in the city imo, depending on what your in the mood for that day.

Wait, confused, I just looked at their brunch menu cause we are looking for something to do this weekend. Their french toast says vegetarian not vegan. Will they make it vegan if you ask? Are you talking about these (* Torrejas - french toast, piloncillo syrup, whipped cream, fresh berries 10)?

It isn't the Torrejas, rather its called "vegan french toast" on their special board at Dos Segundos.

Yea I don't think I have ever seen it on the menu. Rather it's on the board outside or inside. But I have never been there for brunch and them not have it.

Are you guys familiar with Melody Gardot? She is an outstanding singer and I am in love with her! She's from Jersey/Philly.

I almost imploded yesterday trying to decide which sandwich to get. I've had the steak - it may be the greatest sandwich I've ever eaten - but to each his or her own, right? I had the eggplant grinder. I wish the bread hadn't been so toasted - made it hard to shovel into my mouth. Otherwise, perfection.

Is it just me or is the Yukon the most popular slice/pie they serve? So far, I'm a South Philly guy - the one with sausage, rabe, eggplant, and fennel. Throw some hot sauce on that bad boy and I'm straight. And the fries?! Oy... Maybe instead of a Philly sub-forum for a Blackbird thread, we should lobby for a Blackbird forum and start a Philly thread.

Until the South Street Honeys opens, this is the best food relationship I've ever been in.

I really want to try the south philly pizza; it's definitely my favorite stuff on it so it will probably be my favorite kind. Damn I need to try the sandwiches!!! When are we going again? And what is South Street Honeys??? And where can I move to in June that is closer to all these places!

This is actually the only one I didn't really care for. It wasn't bad, but I wouldn't get it again. But I like a truckload of daiya on my pizza and that one doesn't have any. So.

I really need to go back to Blackbird soon.

i think the cheese steak pizza has been my favorite thus far. they were trying out a couple new pizzas last night which were excellent as well.

Honey's Sit-N-Eat is a restaurant in northern liberties and they are opening a second location at 21st and south iirc. Ive been a couple times but didnt think they had that epic of a vegan selection but maybe its changed. what do you usually get there? i know the veggie burger, veg sausage, and the veg chicken fried steak wern't vegan but they did have an excellent tofu asian salad the one day as a special.
