The Importance Behind the Evolving Waterfront Cafe Menu
Whether you are a regular at the Waterfront Gourmet or about to come by for the first time, you are certain to notice that the Waterfront Cafe menu is a little out of the ordinary for a downtown Philadelphia deli and cafe. Our list of gourmet deli sandwiches features many recognizable favorites, but with a twist.
Plus, our menu is famous for adding new options and featuring seasonal specials. Have you ever wondered why the Waterfront Cafe menu places emphasis on new and signature items?
A Commitment to Fresh Ingredients
One of the biggest reasons the Waterfront Cafe menu is constantly changing is because we are committed to serving up fresh ingredients. At all of our Philadelphia locations, our salads, sandwiches, wraps, and other menu items incorporate wholesome and healthy ingredients. Today’s culture is inundated with processed foods, but not here at Waterfront Gourmet. We know those ingredients simply don’t satisfy our craving for fresh fruit, whole grains, and tasty vegetables. A dynamic menu allows Waterfront Gourmet Cafe & Deli to continue selecting the healthiest options out there.
As well, flexibility in our menu choices provides the space to create incredible seasonal specials. We often look for local, seasonal ingredients that are perfect additions to a deli menu. But these ingredients aren’t available fresh all year long. We have found that some of seasonal specials become crowd favorites among our customers, and when we can we either keep those options longer or try to bring them back the next year. In the warm, vibrant summer season it is easy to see how we incorporate tomatoes, avocado, and other ingredients into menu items. This task does become trickier during the cold Philadelphia winter, but since opening our first location, our commitment to fresh ingredients remains steadfast, throughout the year.

A Commitment to Our Customers
A big reason the Waterfront Gourmet Cafe & Deli is regularly swapping menu options is based on a commitment to our customers. The entire team, led by owner Hanna, wants to provide the best possible food experience in our cafes and our catering options. This means sharing our growing knowledge of food and flavors through the Waterfront Cafe menu.
There is always something new to learn in the world of hospitality and food trends are always changing. Plus, our cafe locations are constantly receiving customer feedback. When Waterfront Gourmet channels all of this information into signature sandwiches and delicious wraps, it benefits our customers.
Plus, we are always experimenting behind the scenes. If something sounds like it would make a good sandwich, then we give it a shot. Only a few of these experiments make it to the menu, but we are constantly looking for delicious flavor combinations. We will remain committed to giving customers the best possible menu choices.
