Eat Healthy with Fresh Gourmet Deli Food from Waterfront Gourmet

We all say it at some point. We wish we would eat healthier and choose options that are better for us rather than settling for the easy and usually unhealthy option when it comes to food.

This time of year can really start to get hectic. Summer vacations are coming to an end. Students are moving into college dorms or returning from their summers. Parents are helping. And it means that the downtime you get when the weather heats up and families tend to have more time available to them for trips and little getaways are also coming to an end. It’s back to the crazy daily rush that tends to happen very easily in Philadelphia.

This presents a problem when you are looking to eat healthily. If you are always on the go and rushing around from one thing to the next for work or school, how can you find the time to get a healthy meal made fresh that is also fast and can keep you on the go? Say hello to Waterfront Gourmet, the perfect on the go option where students and businesspeople alike can go for fresh gourmet deli food.

Waterfront Gourmet can easily become your go-to spot for fresh food that is much better for you and helps you stay more focused on your day than making that quick pit stop at a local fast-food restaurant. It’s especially easy when you have multiple locations to choose from around the city of Philadelphia and options on the menu for any meal during your busy day.

Where to go When You Need a Study Break in University City

Breakfast – The way you choose to start your day is certainly important. What you eat before you start work or school can set the tone for the rest of the day. At Waterfront Gourmet, get fresh bagels, breakfast sandwiches and of course, fresh gourmet coffee that is sure to lift you up and give you the boost you need to start your day.

Lunch – When we say we are a fresh gourmet deli, we mean it. We not only have your standard deli fare, but we also put a unique twist on deli favorites to give you new and exciting flavors. We use only the freshest ingredients so you get a healthy meal every single time you stop in. Choose from a variety of options from gourmet sandwiches, salads, paninis, wraps and more and get a healthy lunch that helps you get through the rest of your afternoon with plenty of energy.

Dinner – Those same great healthy options available for lunch can be perfect for dinner as well. If you need to just grab something quickly on your way to meet friends for a night out or if you know time is limited and just want something different that is still healthy, get fresh gourmet deli food still made fresh right up until closing.

With so many options in place, the only thing left to tell you is how you can find us. Trying to get a meal quickly while you are on the go can be difficult if you have to walk a far way to find a location. That’s why we have four local locations throughout the city of Philadelphia to make it possible for people to always get fresh gourmet deli food at any time of the day.

Penn’s Landing – Our original location is right on the waterfront at Penn’s Landing, right next to the Delaware River. This location is right on the water, so if you are stopping in after an early morning run or bike ride or just trying to grab breakfast before you head into Old City, this is the location for you. It also provides you with scenic views of the river looking across into New Jersey or to see boats moving along the Delaware River, so if you have time to stop in and relax and enjoy the view for a while, we certainly recommend it.

University City – With school ready to get back in session, students certainly need a place where they can still get fresh and healthy food without having to sacrifice too much time. The location at University City is perfect for students on the campuses of Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania. 

Roberts Center – Located in Roberts Center on South Street, you can get the same great food right on the waterfront of the Schuylkill River. Please note that this location has different hours than the other three locations — closes at 6 p.m. instead of 8 p.m. — and is not open on weekends.

Dilworth Park – Our newest location is right in the middle of Center City Philadelphia and across the street from City Hall. It’s perfect for anyone trying to get a quick meal while on a lunch break from their Center City office job or exploring the heart of the city on a day off or vacation.

So stop in and try the freshest deli food available in the city of Philadelphia at one of our four convenient locations and see just how fresh we make it at Waterfront Gourmet.
