About Us

WATERFRONT GOURMET

We are Center City Philadelphia’s favorite spot for inspired twists on deli-style sandwiches, delicious signature salads, gourmet paninis and distinctive coffee by Bali Bean Coffee Company. We began our journey with our first location in 2014, and we now have 4 cafes in the downtown Philadelphia area, including our latest cafe at Dilworth Plaza (across from City Hall). Our food is always freshly prepared, and we keep our menu fresh too, by making sure it’s constantly evolving. If you’d like to take the Gourmet experience off of the Waterfront, we deliver catering all over center city Philadelphia. We offer distinctive catering services for corporate and private events.

Always Fresh, Always Awesome!

Latest From The Blog

For so many people, healthy food is the choice, the lifestyle that you need to have in order to have a better quality of life. It can be difficult to get fresh food on the go in the heart of the city. It is understandable too. You only have so much time to eat lunch during work hours before you are expected back at your job. Sitting down for a healthy meal isn’t an option. You need something fast. In too many places, fast food means unhealthy food. That’s not fair to you as someone who wants to put your health first and get fresh-made food. That’s where Waterfront Gourmet comes in. With fresh deli sandwiches, salads, soups, paninis, wraps...

Bali Bean Coffee

Let's talk about Bali Bean Coffee!

At Waterfront Gourmet, every coffee bean we grind comes from Bali Bean coffee. The artisan coffee blend that pours the spirit and culture of Bali into every cup. The artisan coffee blend that infuses the sights, sounds and flavors of the South Pacific into every bean. An authentic artisan coffee blend that captures the beautiful spirit of the Island of the Gods in every drip. The special blend that captures the authentic vibe of Bali with a bold and welcoming character. When you order an espresso, Americano, or a black cup of joe at Waterfront Gourmet, you know it was brewed with the finest, freshest, responsibly sourced ingredients.

I was new to the world of coffee in 2014, but immediately I found myself drawn to creating the perfect artisan blend. That desire pushed me to experiment for years with some of the best quality beans from some of the best-known growers on Earth. Until finally, I found the blend that I had in my head. Our beans are 100% Arabica, USDA organic and come from the best coffee farms in Bali, Indonesia. We also discovered great blends from Africa, South America and are currently exploring amazing beans from around the world.
I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.

About Hanna

I was born and raised in Bali, Indonesia, where I studied food and hospitality. In 2001 I immigrated to the U.S. to immerse myself in the diverse food culture, and to pursue my dream. I’ve worked in the food industry to hone my craft ever since. Waterfront Gourmet is a passion of mine and a dream that became reality in early 2014. My vision for Waterfront Gourmet is to maintain an atmosphere of comfort – merging the elements of a cozy cafe, with top-quality deli cuisine. I strive to make sure that every sandwich I make takes something familiar and presents it to you in a new and exciting way. The combination of my technique and passion stirs together to create deli favorites that are a delicate blend of old and new. My menu will never be finished. Instead it’s always evolving and changing as I hone and perfect my craft. I hope you’ll come down, and have a bite with me.

Thank you!
