Downtown Philadelphia sidewalks are iced over, the wind is biting cold and all you want to do is warm up. Step into waterfront cafe and let us treat you to our favorite decadent dishes catered to warm your stomach and mood. Take a look at our specially recommended wintertime hot cafe menu items below.


Toasty Deli Sandwiches Are the Best Way to Beat the Philly Winter


There’s no better way to fill your stomach after dealing with the freezing Philadelphia weather than biting into a warm, melty pile of meat, cheese, sauce and bread. Waterfront’s cafe menu is filled with hearty, hot sandwiches, hoagies and paninis. Any of them will satisfy your winter cravings, and we want to highlight a few of our favorites:

  • Chipotle Bacon Panini – A blend of chili pepper seasonings, along with chipotle gouda cheese, onion, bacon and honey mustard, has just the right amount of spice to heat you up.

  • Pier 5 Cheesesteak Special – This heavenly mashup of shredded steak, onions, peppers and swiss cheese is worth braving the cold downtown Philadelphia streets (or you can just have it catered in to your work or home).

  • Corned Beef Reuben – Hot, tender corned beef, sauerkraut, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese compose a delightfully filling masterpiece that is arguably the best deli sandwich in all of Philly!
