Going out to eat with the entire family can be tough. High chairs, crayons, mac-and-cheese–these seem to be the hallmarks of what most people look for when they’re searching for a place to bring the rugrats. Loud, brightly-colored rooms that cater to young eaters by creating an experience where tears, tantrums and spills can go almost completely unnoticed.
And look, there are plenty of those kinds of places out there. Most diners, a lot of suburban restaurants, pizza joints, every fast-casual operation ever invented — all perfect. Iron Hill? That place is ideal because it’s planted squarely at the intersection of kids menus and beer lists. It’s a bar that you can bring your kids to without being, you know, the parents who bring their kids to the bar…
But sometimes you’re looking for something a little different. Sometimes you want to sit at an actual table and eat something that’s not chicken fingers. You want to take a chance and push the family-dining envelope a little.
That’s where we come in.

There are only a few foods that one can happily eat for every meal and pancakes are one of them. Maybe it’s because lasagna for breakfast doesn’t flow as well, but pancakes for dinner is never a bad idea. No matter what time it is, pancakes can always be the answer to the question of “What would make me happy right now?” And here’s a list of some of our favorite spots to get the hot and fluffy dish.

Michael Klein is reporting that Jeb Woody and Ellen Mogell will be opening their third Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat in Old City. The newest location of the popular bruncherie will be at 228 Vine Street, the former home of Konak. The Old City Honey’s will also be different from the other two locations in that it will have a liquor license.
The projected opening date is six to nine months out but as Graduate Hospital and Fitler Square residents who impatiently awaited the 21st and South location will tell you, there might be delays.

Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat finally opened at 21st and South Street today for lunch. First reported back in June of 2010, the branch of Northern Liberties’ Jewish/Southern diner swung open the doors for lunch today.
UPDATE: Honey’s Sit ‘N Eat does not have regular hours yet. They’re “Live Training Exercises” are being held this week at different times. Call ahead to find out what’s going on. 215-732-5130.
About once a week we receive an email, text or tweet from someone exasperated that the Honey’s Sit ‘n Eat hasn’t opened at 21st and South Street yet. So for the doubters, we spotted the sign of progress being delivered.
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.
