The anticipated opening of Anthony and Damon Mascieri’s Plenty Cafe in Queen Village is set for Monday, November, 14. Like the other two Plenty locations, the storefront at 705 South 5th Street will be an all-day cafe with specialty coffee; sandwiches and salads for lunch; cocktails, wine and beer; and more robust food at night.
The Queen Village Plenty will be the largest of the three cafes with 2,000 square feet housing a 10-seat bar and enough tables for 54 diners. With good weather, another 28 can be seated outdoors.
Once just a coffee shop with sandwiches, the Plenty model is now that of a European-inspired all-day cafe. A concept that’s definitely having its moment in Philadelphia. Coffee still plays an important role though. In fact the bar will pour three different coffees on draft. Additionally the bar will offer seasonal coffee cocktails and will soon be serving Philadelphia’s first coffee soda. The rest of the 21 taps will offer 12 wines and 6 beers. The bar will also offer a curated list of aperitivi and digestivi, plus whiskeys and other spirits.
The menu will change as the day unfolds. A breakfast menu with a selection of breakfast sandwiches in the a.m., followed by bites & boards, salads, toasts and Plenty’s well known sandwiches. In evening, a changing selection of more composed plates will also be available.
The Plenty Café in Queen Village will be open from 7 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to midnight, Saturday and Sunday.
