“Great place for brunch on a Sunday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2011

We went for brunch on a Sunday and the place was full. We waited only a few minutes though to be seated.

We ordered the Homegrown Swiss Chard, Pork Sausage, New Potato and Goat Cheese Frittata (very filling), Huevos Rancheros de Verduras y Frijoles and Fresh Fruit with Housemade Granola and Local Yogurt and Buttermilk Pancakes with blueberries. The pancakes were so wonderful on their own that we all gobbled them up without any butter or syrup.

We also ordered the scrapple because we had never had it before and it is a dish common to the Pennsylvania Dutch, the Amish and Mennonites. It tasted like pork rillette. We liked it.

Coffee is self-serve and bottomless from a selection of 4 different coffees and soy milk is available.

A delightful place to have brunch in Philadelphia.

Note: Street parking only. The parking lot right in front of the cafe is not for customer parking.

“Great Food, Cool Vibe, Reasonable Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2009

Cafe Estelle is just north of downtown Philadelphia, located on the ground floor of a condo/loft building. Recommended to us by a server at a swank downtown restaurant. Definitely not a location frequented by tourists, which is what we (as tourists) like. Kind of a cool and hip industrial decor. The website indicates that much of the food is local and organic. We did the Sunday brunch, which has lots of things with a slightly different twist. Food is great, very reasonably priced, and the staff was very friendly. Definitely recommend.
