Searching For the Best Gourmet Food in Philadelphia

Whenever you’re in a crunch or searching for the next great place to grab some delicious gourmet food, you’re most likely to type into your phone, “places to eat near me.” A map of restaurants and cafes to eat at in your surrounding area will pop up on your phone, and you’ll scroll through each one trying to find the place that appeals to you most. This isn’t anything new; everyone does this. However, depending on your tastes, this process could be time-consuming.

Maybe you’re in search of fresh, healthy food and the only things that pop up on your screen are fast food options like Five Guys or local pizza shops. Perhaps you’re searching for a place that can offer food for all kinds of preferences. For example, you may need a meat lovers sandwich for one person while the other needs vegan options. With so many taste buds and diets to adhere to, finding the best place to eat can become a headache. Fortunately for you, you’ve stumbled across the right blog.

If you’re looking for a cafe that serves gourmet food that can cater to people with all tastes and diets, then you’re looking for Waterfront Gourmet. Let’s explore some of the options we provide:

Breakfast and Bagels

What’s the most important meal of the day? Breakfast! That’s right. Without a proper breakfast in the morning, the day just doesn’t feel the same. A healthy and nourishing breakfast sets the tone for the day and gives you the energy needed to focus on what’s really important. At Waterfront Gourmet, we have the breakfast and bagel options that will set you on the path for blazing through everything you need to get done. And what should you pair with your nutritious breakfast? Illy coffee. Whether you want it hot or cold, our coffee is brewed to perfection for a smooth, flavorful taste that will jolt your morning into go mode.

Each item on our menu delivers the perfect balance of vegetables, meat, and spreads for a flavorful, mouthwatering journey you’ll have to come back to experience again. Check out our menu and find your special, today!

Salads and Vegetarian Specials

Remember when we said we had something for everyone? Well, we weren’t kidding. Lunches are different for everyone. While some want something to keep them full throughout the day, others want something light, like a salad. And for those who prefer to eat clean, we’ve got vegetarian and vegan options too! And, better yet, everything is customizable. If you’ve got certain food preferences, just let our friendly staff know, and we’ll customize your order to meet your individual dietary needs.
