Waterfront Gourmet: A Perfect Date Spot

Valentine’s Day may be Feb. 14 on the calendar, but it is not uncommon to see couples of all ages looking for something to do and somewhere to go to get great food. The togetherness of enjoying a meal together provides time to connect, reflect and discuss various topics and get to know each other more, whether you have been together for a few weeks, a few years, or are on a first date.

Waterfront Gourmet is the perfect date spot for you and your valentine on Valentine’s Day and every day.

If you are looking for gourmet sandwiches, paninis, salads, wraps and so much more, you will want to try the selection of items on the menu at Waterfront Gourmet, made fresh with all natural ingredients, making it a perfect option for eating healthy and still getting your fill.

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

More than that, there are four locations that are perfect for couples out and about in Philadelphia looking for delicious gourmet sandwiches. The waterfront of Penn’s Landing offers many different activities for couples like running and jogging or biking. You can also head to Penn’s Landing to catch the ferry over the Delaware River to see the activities that the Camden waterfront has to offer. With all of that in mind, Waterfront Gourmet’s location is in the perfect spot to grab a sandwich, salad or coffee before or after your activities.

Our University City location is in the perfect spot for couples of all ages, but especially those who attend nearby colleges and universities. Whether it is in between classes or on a quiet day off, Waterfront Gourmet can serve as a great place to sit back and relax with that special someone or just a group of friends over lunch.

The Roberts Center location is located right near the Schuylkill River on South Street and provides the perfect spot to pop in for a grab and go meal.

Finally, our Dilworth Plaza location is located right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia and is an excellent spot for a meal during all of the sights you can see during your travels throughout the historic city of Philadelphia. With a location near City Hall, Love Park and within walking distance of other great places like Reading Terminal Market, Logan Square, One Liberty Place, the Academy of Music and more, Waterfront Gourmet is the best place to eat healthy food all over the city.

Wherever you are in the great city of Philadelphia, there is a location for you to still grab a delicious and healthy meal made from quality ingredients. Waterfront Gourmet puts a twist on deli-style food from gourmet sandwiches to wraps to paninis to salads and even coffee. Our first location on the waterfront opened in 2014.

Another option for couples or for people all around the city is to just stay home and get food delivered. Maybe it’s a day that you just don’t want to leave the house or you are cuddling up for a night in watching movies. You can get great food delivered right to your door through GrubHub and Uber Eats.

Waterfront Gourmet is a perfect option for people at all times of the day. There are delicious breakfast options available for the early morning pick me up or to simply start your day the right way. The lunch menu is always changing with new inspired gourmet sandwiches and salads. Because we are not your typical deli cuisine, you can certainly get your fill at dinner time with our delicious meals.

Of course, not everyone spends Valentine’s Day in a relationship. If you are part of the single crowd and simply picking up a meal for yourself or on the go with a busy schedule, Waterfront Gourmet has something for you as well.

Finally, don’t forget that we can be your caterer for your next event. Our catering is top tier professional and we will prepare everything for you fresh and deliver it for your next event. It can be a private party or an office gathering.
