Stopped in for a bite near the Mutter museum. If there hadn’t been a wait, we’d have sat down because it looked so inviting. Grabbed a bagel, but Robin, the owner, gave me half of her warm Queen Amam. It was delicious! Buttery, flaky/chewy/tender... all...More

GO early for brunch - like 10 minutes before it opens or else you’re likely to wait, since it fills up fast! Great freshly-baked goods and menu that has sweet, savory and a mixture of both. Will definitely be back.
