On the Go for the Holidays? Stop at Waterfront Gourmet!

It’s the holiday season and the city of Philadelphia is bustling with shoppers and holiday travelers getting excited to spend time with their families and friends throughout the coming weeks.

The holidays are about so much more than just shopping for gifts for loved ones or traveling. It’s about activities, and the city of Philadelphia offers a lot of reasons to be out on the town around the holidays. Through all of the activity, you have to remember to eat!

Luckily, whether you are paying a visit to Christmas Village in Dilworth Park, going for a nighttime skate at the River Rink in Penn’s Landing or just doing some holiday shopping around the city, there are multiple locations where you can stop in to grab a tasty sandwich, panini or toasty cup of soup from Waterfront Gourmet.

We all have those days when we are busy and on the go and barely have time to stop for lunch or need to grab a quick dinner as we head to other plans, events, and gatherings. The holidays are a time to be thankful for those around us, which is why we put time into getting gifts and spending time with them. It’s also a time to treasure and value our health and being alive to spend time with them. Eating healthy isn’t always easy though, especially when schedules get tighter and busier. So many times, we opt for unhealthy choices like the fast-food drive-thru. Why not get great tasting healthy food fast instead?!

Healthy Holiday Catering by Waterfront Gourmet

Waterfront Gourmet serves food for every meal. Grab fresh fruit, a bagel or breakfast sandwich or get your morning cup of coffee with us. It’s the perfect way to start your day and get moving.

For lunch, one of our signature sandwiches, salads or paninis is perfect and delicious. Our menu offers quite the selection, so you are sure to find something that satisfies.

We may be a deli-style food establishment, but our meals are classic with a twist. With expansions on the classic deli menu, we have dinner covered for you.

Waterfront Gourmet takes gourmet deli food to another level, using all natural ingredients and creative recipes to put a twist on traditional deli fare. From our deli-style sandwiches packed with meats and cheeses to our signature salads made with fresh vegetables, our gourmet paninis freshly toasted, and even distinctive coffee flavors, everything is made fresh to order and the menu is also changing and evolving. If you are the type who likes to sample and try new foods and flavors, we are certainly the place for you.

Not only is our menu always growing and evolving, but so is our presence in the city of Philadelphia. When we started in 2014, we had our original location on the waterfront in Penn’s Landing. We now have four locations in downtown Philadelphia, including spots in University City, Roberts Center and our newest location at Dilworth Park across from City Hall, giving you multiple opportunities to stop in and grab a bite to eat.

No matter what time of day, Waterfront Gourmet has options for you. Our locations are also open on extensive hours starting at 7 AM on weekdays and 8 AM on weekends and remain open until 8 PM at all locations excluding the Roberts Center. All three other locations are also open from 8 AM to 8 PM on weekends, so you can grab a delicious and healthy meal or coffee any day of the week at almost any time.

Additionally, Waterfront Gourmet is also the perfect place to escape the rush of the holidays and take a break from the noise. We may serve deli-style food, but we have all of the makings of a cafe for light conversation or just a chance to sit in the warmth and get out of the cold for a few minutes.

Maybe you’re not on the go for this holiday season as much, but have a holiday party at work or for your family that needs catering. Waterfront Gourmet can take care of that as well. We offer top-tier professional level catering to provide great tasting and healthy food for your party or event, complete with freshly prepared food and delivery.

So come on down to Waterfront Gourmet today for a tasty meal on the go or to take a break from all the holiday hustle. During the busy time of year, it’s important to remember to make a little time for yourself, whether that’s a quiet lunch on your own, a cup of coffee with a friend or just a relaxing dinner after a long day of work or holiday shopping. Whatever the reason, we’re glad you choose to stop in and get a healthy and delicious meal with us at Waterfront Gourmet.
