It's worth the wait, and there almost always is one, for good reason. Great brunch! Try the breakfast burrito or frittata.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit here. Menu had lots of choices, excellent service, friendly staff. Priced reasonably, although the desserts were a little high. All in all, I highly recommend.

Cake is a very popular restaurant in the central region of Chestnut Hill, a wealthier section of Philadelphia. The building is an inviting solarium - iron & glass pavilion. The menu is very good - reflecting a nutritious array of thoughtful and well-presented items. Service is always excellent. Prices are reasonable for its style and location. Customer love new can...

Everything is right about Cake. It's set in a small, cozy space that was once a greenhouse which makes the lighting inside magical. Just the space alone is worth going for. The menu is the perfect mix of healthy homemade favorites done in a unique way so that's it's fresh and interesting but not pretentious in anyway. Picky eaters and... More

On an unusually warm January day my wife & I along with a great friend had lunch at this idyllic, glass enclosed former floral "hot house" to catch up on each of our lives. Cake is not just a bakery, although it's baked goods can rival the best French pastries. It is an oasis for delicious soups, sandwiches and salads... More

The space is great. It is an old greenhouse with soaring glass. The menu is not extensive and there are daily specials. If you want to have a leisurely lunch going during the week as it is crowded on weekends and you do feel some pressure to leave as there is not a place for people to wait for tables.... More

We ordered takeaway pastries for the trip home to NYC. Everything in the case looked spectacular, difficult to make a choice. The restaurant is open and airy, a beautiful setting for brunch or lunch.

The food is great, and the atmosphere is lovely with the large amount of natural daylight and plants, but the menu is quite limited. I was there for lunch and while there is plenty of cakes/ pastries, and plenty of salad type dishes, there is very little in between. I had the quiche which was great. There was also a... More

Went here for brunch on a Friday morning, and didn't have a hard time getting a table, though the place was definitely hopping. The service was excellent-- relaxed and happy is how I'd describe the atmosphere. The food was very good-- not ginormous plates, but that's probably for the best. I'd definitely come back for brunch if I were in... More

We are always on the look out for a new BYOB to try. Had walked past Cake on a recent stroll and saw that it offered dinner on Friday nights. The atmosphere was very laid back and cozy. Not very crowded at 6PM. When I saw the prices I expected the portions to be small. Not at all. Food was... More
