Earlier this week we told you about the complete redo at Plenty Cafe on East Passyunk. But the Center City location is also getting an upgrade. Starting today, the cafe at 1602 Spruce Street is also serving booze. The drink list includes 5 beers, 1 dry cider, 2 red wines, 2 white wines, Prosecco, mimosas and Bloody Marys.
As for Plenty Cafe’s planned third location in Queen Village, that’s still under construction at 5th and Monroe Streets. The Queen Village location will be the biggest Plenty Cafe at 1,500 square foot. The corner is the anchor of owner Damon Mascieri’s Fabric Lofts, eight bi-level apartments with 13-foot ceilings and a green roof deck.

New bar at Plenty Cafe on East Passyunk
Plenty Cafe has reopened on East Passyunk after a several-months-long conversion into an all-day cafe with liquor license. The reimagined Plenty Cafe will still offer coffee, breakfast and lunch but will now also have table service after 4 p.m. The cafe will also have a marble bar with 6 draft beers, six draft wines (available by-the-glass or carafe) and a total of 17 wines available by-the-glass. And since it is an-all day cafe, the bar will also offer brunch drinks like their signature Korean Bloody Mary with kimchi, gochujang and daikon. There will also be a selection of classic aperitivi and digestivi from Europe. These vermouths, red bitters, gentians and cinchonas will be served traditionally and featured in Plenty Cafe’s six signature cocktails.
The opening draft list includes a solid lineup from around the world including Gaffel Kolsch, Allagash White and Young’s Double Chocolate Stout. The drafts are backed up by 30 beers available by bottle or can.
