I'll be in Philly for the first time next week with an omni friend who is a very picky eater. Brunch is on the agenda for Sunday. I suggested MiLah and she rejected it because she "would have to modify everything, even the blueberry pancakes." (i.e., leave out the blueberries because she doesn't like them) She has not suggested any places. Any recommendations? It doesn't have to be an all-veg place (don't even know if there is another one that does brunch) but I would like several menu options from which to choose and not have to modify to make vegan. I would also prefer an actual restaurant instead of a bagel place, etc. Thanks in advance for your vast knowledge!

I heartily recommend Green Eggs Cafe on 13th just south of Walnut. Numerous vegan and omni options, and my picky omni is more than happy to eat there. Other than that, Farmicia has some vegan options on their brunch menu, and so does the Khyber Pass Pub. National Mechanics has vegan items on their brunch menu (or easily veganizable). Farther afield, I'll also heartily recommend Memphis Taproom in Fishtown/Kensington. They are seriously awesomesauce. I hope you find something amazing!

Thanks! I also hope I find something amazing. I love my friend but food negotiations are painful.

I find this hysterical, normally it's the other way around! But I agree with the above suggestions. There is also Sabrina's. http://sabrinascafe.com/menus/

I was just coming here to post the same question. My Dad wants to go to brunch for Father's Day and he wants me to be able to eat more than fruit and bread. I told him he would have to be willing to go into the city for a vegan friendly brunch.

I know I'm really late to the party, but I just got back from a trip to Philly, and I had the most wonderful breakfast at Green Eggs Cafe. I'll be honest, the service left a lot to be desired (they forgot my order completely, so my husband ate his entire burrito before my french toast finally arrived), but they took my food off the bill and were very apologetic about the whole thing. And the food was worth the trouble, once it finally came!
