Coffee and Crepes and Shakes, Oh My!

Who says crepes are only for the French? No one really, but the question had to be asked because Philly is set to get one more creperie: Global Crepes and Local Shakes.  Set to open in Passyunk Square this January, owner Liza Iezzi is hoping to bring good food and memories, inspired by a shop her grandfather owned on 11th and Christian.

The cafe will serve coffee, crepes, homemade shakes, and an assortment of teas, ice creams, and wraps. If you want to get a sneak peek at Iezzi’s crepes, head over to Christmas Village at Love Park, where she’s serving crepes and baked waffles. Rumor has it Nutella is involved.

Blarney South Under New Ownership

Irish pub, The Blarney South on South Street is under new ownership. New owner, Bill Boyle is expected to close the bar sometime in January for some renovations, with the re-opening date currently unknown. Along with bar renovations, Boyle plans to revamp the pub’s menu as well and just make the spot a tad classier.

With the recent addition of Redwood on that block of South Street, perhaps things are looking up.

Center City’s Pagano’s Opens a Bar Today


Pagano’s Market, now appropriately named Pagano’s Market + Bar is opening its bar to the public today at 4:30 p.m. Pagano’s will now offer craft beer, fine wine, whiskey and a bar menu crafted by chef Matt Pagano.

Menu items include sandwiches like the Half-Pound Steak Burger with fontina cheese, braised onions and a smokey chipotle sauce and entrees like the Baked Gnocchi Pomodoro with ricotta and mozzarella cheese.

While the first drink has already been raffled off to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania, there are still beers on tap and more than enough drinks to go around. Speciality cocktails include the Philly Pretzel Martini, made with Pinnacle Whipped Cream Vodka and Frangelico Liquor in a salt-rimmed glass, and the Godfather made from Famous Grous Scotch and Amaretto Si Sarrono on the rocks.

Dinner for Two at Lemon Hill

When thinking of love, the first thought that comes to people’s minds is usually far from lemons. Lemon Hill is challenging this notion, however, with the introduction of their Dinner for 2 Specials. Every weekend, couples can share a protein-packed entree that changes weekly. The dishes can be split between more than two people, so don’t turn down your neighbor’s double-date request just yet.
