We’re certain you have your day of service in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. planned out. But if you need a hearty breakfast before you start, Chris Fetfatzes’ Hawthornes and The Cambridge are open for brunch.

We’re sure the Cambridge’s Taylor Pork Roll and Chorizo Egg Sandwich is just the base you need before helping to clean or paint one of Philadelphia’s recreation centers.

Black Friday Brunches Around Town

Kraftwork and Sidecar – Both these bars are offering their annual Blackout Brunch. Sidecar is making Thanksgiving leftovers sound appealing with specials like “green bean casserole quiche” and yam soup plus dark beers like Great Lakes Blackout Stout and Goose Island Bourbon Country Stout. Kraftwork is offering almond pumpkin coffee cake and Thanksgiving biscuits and gravy. The Fishtown bar will also be going dark on tap with Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout highlighting an impressive list.
