I'm attending the Sunday show of This Is Hardcore in a couple weeks and rather than be separated from my infant for the night, my boyfriend, toddler and baby are coming and will hang out in a hotel that night (after we take the toddler to the Please Touch Museum during the day and hopefully eat awesome vegan foods) while I go to the show. I think we'll probably check out Blackbird and maybe one other place on Sunday, but I'd like recommendations for a place to stop and get breakfast (can be take-out, we don't necessarily wanna try to eat in somewhere with both little ones) on Monday as we head back to NYC. Whattya think? boyfriend is partial to checking out Grindcore House just 'cause he loves the name and we both get stoked when a place has multiple non-dairy choices for coffee!

Grindcore is def a good option since they open early. Where are you staying, what neighborhood? The Soy Cafe might be a good place. I am not sure of their hours or breakfast menu options though. Sabrinas and Dos Segundas would work for restaurants, again check the hours for them. Weekday vegan breakfast might harder to find then on the weekends. Try Ms. Rachels Pantry and Green Eggs Cafe too. There is a place called the Satellite Cafe, but they don't have a website and I can't find a menu online. So I'm not sure if they have real breakfast food that is vegan or not. You could def go to Sweet Freedom Bakery if they are open early. Lots of baked goods there!

Have fun! My husband is missing This is Hardcore this year.

I second all of Gracia's suggestions. Satellite is a coffee shop--they have bagels with Tofutti or EB&nooch, and some other stuff (Vegan Treats, etc). If you're near south Philly, Benna's, B2 & Black & Brew all offer vegan breakfast options as well.

Soy Cafe: http://philadelphia.menupages.com/resta ... -cafe/menu NoLibs. coffee, bagels, smoothies, salads & sandwiches
Grindcore House: http://www.grindcorehouse.com/ South Philly. 100% vegan. really great coffee, bagels (with a million different cream cheeses & toppings), sandwiches. plus a PPKer works there !
Satellite: http://www.yelp.com/biz/satellite-caf%C ... adelphia-2 West Philly. coffee, bagels, sandwiches
Mugshots: http://www.mugshotscoffeehouse.com/ordereze/splash.html Fairmount (& Brewerytown & North Philly). fantastic coffee, bagels, sandwiches, 2 nondairy milks (almond & soy), some in-house vegan baked goods.
Cantina: http://www.cantinadossegundos.com/cantina_info.php NoLibs. http://www.cantinaloscaballitos.com/main.html South Philly. both serve brunch (with at least 1 vegan option) every day starting at 11.
Benna's: http://www.bennascafe.com/ South Philly. B2 is the same thing basically/same owners. Smoothies, bagels, coffee, vegan soft serve.
Black & Brew: http://blackbrew.net/ South Philly. across the street from B2. Tofu scramble, usually at least one other vegan option. Bagels, coffee, sandwiches
Green Eggs: http://greeneggscafe.com/ NoLibs & South Philly (& according to their site, there is a 3rd in center city now). This place is a little nicer than all the aforementioned spots. Cash only! Amazing breakfast burrito, some other vegan options.

I'll continue with this list later. What neighborhood will you be in?

I thought B2 was closed! That is exciting.

Who is the ppker that works at Grindcore? I'll have to say hello next time I go!

Gracia, c'est moi!

Philly is severely lacking in good brunch options, especially on weekdays. If you like bagels, go to Grindcore. I highly recommend the sesame with scallion cream cheese and cucumber, or everything with jalapeno cream cheese and avocado. My second choice would be Green Eggs. They make a decent tofu scramble.

Wait, who did I talk to about getting more gluten free items in at Grindcore? Was that you? Next time I come in I'm asking for Buttercup :o)

woooo thanks guys, I kinda forgot I made this thread! I'm getting very excited for Sunday.
It's going to be weird timing, because we're arriving that morning and will probably go right to the Please Touch Museum. But after that I'm not sure, because I want to get to the show by around 5 but also feel like I want to get everybody settled in the hotel before I leave them. We'll be staying near N. 16th and Vine.
