Ready for a day across the river to explore everything the Collingswood area has to offer? First stop: fuel up with a delicious breakfast. Here’s a round-up of the best spots in the neighborhood:
This local favorite, dubbed a “Philadelphia institution” by Conde Nast Traveler with 5 locations in the area, attracts quite the brunch crowd. In fact, it’s not unusual to see a line of hungry patrons waiting outside for a table, but the wait is well worth it. Once your table is ready, you’ll be welcomed into a bright, beautifully decorated space and you’ll get a mouth-watering menu of dishes to choose from.
The Stuffed Challah French Toast and the Huevos Rancheros are a couple of favorites but there’s something for everyone, so go hungry and get ready for a delicious feast!
The Pop Shop
Taking inspiration from the local soda fountain that was the cornerstone of every Main Street in years past, this vintage-inspired restaurant offers all-day breakfast, milkshakes, ice cream and 25 different types of grilled cheeses and sandwiches.
Decorated in colorful 50’s decor complete with jukeboxes and a large soda counter, in addition to serving as a restaurant, the space hosts family events like trivia and balloon-twisting parties sure to entertain the whole family.
Maria’s Bread Sandwiches
You won’t find any cheesesteaks or hoagies here, but rather simple bread sandwiches made from locally farmed ingredients. This was the goal for Maria Beddia and Scott Schroeder, the power couple who moved to the area from South Philly with a desire to open a simple but cozy coffee shop.
Stop in to grab a quick breakfast to go, or enjoy it in the comfortable space designed by Beddia herself, who is also an artist and illustrator with a best-selling children’s book.
Healthy Garden Cafe
Dedicated to offering organic, fresh and natural ingredients, this Haddon Avenue spot caters to everyone’s cravings. From delicious fruit smoothies, to egg sandwiches and avocado toast, their breakfast menu is extensive and vegan-friendly, but they also have a wide variety of options for lunch and dinner, and offer convenient weekly meal plans for busy, health-conscious families who have little time to cook.
Serving delicious La Colombe coffee and seasonal baked goods and desserts, this cozy oasis is not your typical coffee shop. Attracting music lovers and local artists alike, it hosts jam out sessions and a buy & sell program for new and used vinyls, CDs, and DVDs.
Whether you are stopping in to grab breakfast on the go, or you want to enjoy the deck loungers and ambient lights, this is a must-stop when visiting Collingswood!
