Why Are You Waiting in Line at Green Eggs?

Green Eggs

One of the rainy brunch crowds, before the Indego bike installation.

To paraphrase a line from that famous Dr. Seuss book, and in an attempt to keep a rhyme scheme, “I do not like Green Eggs Café. I do not like it; Make it go away.”

Why is there a line every single Saturday and Sunday morning that stretches nearly two city blocks to get into the seemingly cherished brunch restaurant on 13th Street in the middle of the Gayborhood?

News flash: It ain’t that good. Read more »

Six Pack: French Toast In Philly

Editor’s Note: This week, we’re going to be introducing our new army of interns to you, the Foobooz readership. And it occurred to us that what better way for you to get to know them a little then for them to tell you all about something they loved to eat? Thus, we set them each to assembling their own Foobooz Six Pack, focusing on something they craved.

Amanda Shulman is our next contributor. This is what she had to say for herself: “I’m Amanda Shulman and I’m obsessed with anything edible. As a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania, I’m officially studying political science, but have also made it my personal mission to study the Philly food scene. I write for UPenn’s 34th Street Magazine as well as Thewalk.com, and am also the author of my own blog, hungreegirl.blogspot.com. I love to cook, eat, talk about/write about food, and couldn’t be happier to be living in a city where so many people feel the same way. If its edible, I’ll try it–especially when topped with a fried egg or some truffles.”

Sometimes the only way to kick your day off right is with a big pile of ridiculously fluffy and deliciously deadly French Toast. Let’s face it, anything with this much sugar automatically makes those rough mornings a little sweeter. Check out these spots for the ultimate guilty pleasure that is basically an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. Not that we’re protesting.
