This summer, 18th Street, just south of Market Street, will be a hotbed for eating and drinking fun, what with the Tria Wine Garden opening in the old Brodo space, doing with wine what every open space in Philly does with beer.
And hot on its heels: Green Eggs Cafe’s first Center City, west-of-Broad location.

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 »

After this week’s rat-astrophy at Center City’s Green Eggs Cafe, the popular bruncherie has been closed. Here’s a look at the work currently being done to address the rat problem.
Last night, our infamous video of rats inside Center City’s Green Eggs Cafe made the rounds on the 6, 10, and 11 o’clock news, with some stations actually leading their broadcasts with the story.

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.”

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.
