Plenty has been happily feeding East-Passyunkers for over two years now. In May, a second location is scheduled to open at 1602 Spruce Street. Morrissey Design of Flourtown is handling the design.
The building is on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places, so special attention was required to retain the historic facade while adding updated cafe windows. Inside, the cafe and mezzanine space make the most of the modest 600 square feet. Reclaimed wide-plank wood floor and timber beams are accented with black metal stair rails, copper counters, antique mirrors and a tin ceiling. Monochromatic wallcovering (which seems to be all the rage right now) covers much of the walls.
Like East Passyunk’s Plenty, this location will offer gourmet sandwiches, house-made baked goods and salads along with a full-service coffee bar featuring local Philadelphia coffee roasters.

Passyunk Post is reporting that Anthony Mascieri, owner of Plenty, will be opening a second Plenty location in Rittenhouse Square in early 2013. The East Passyunk spot recently remodeled (no more communal table) and began a new breakfast menu with extended service on the weekends and full brunch to come soon.
But where, oh where, will Plenty live in Rittenhouse? We know they’ve closed on the building and started demolition but we don’t know the location. Where do you think (or hope) the new Plenty will be?
And if you’ve seen any demo going on along Rittenhouse Square, you know what to do: let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
