A sample of the new sweet potato breakfast soup at Pure Fare
I’ve got two words for you: Breakfast soup. If you imagine some sort of wholly unappetizing brothy egg concoction when you read those words, let me assure you: That’s not what I’m talking about here. But I do understand why your mind would go there — that’s exactly where my mind went when Kriti Sehgal, owner of the fast-casual spot Pure Fare, told me they’d added breakfast soup, along with a number of other new breakfast items, to the menu at their Rittenhouse location at 119 South 21st Street.
Breakfast soup does NOT sound appetizing to me. And this is why I was so surprised at how darn delicious and delightful their take on it is.

Can you think of a better way to start your day than with a popsicle? Because I can’t. And thanks to the good people over at Pure Fare, you can do just that and you don’t even have to feel guilty about it (for real!): The gluten-free, mostly-organic spot just started whipping up breakfast popsicles, and the first concoction — made with hemp milk, coconut milk, blueberries, granola and maple syrup — is basically your morning bowl of granola made better. Who else is drooling?

The Sweet Potato Custard Brownie Sandwich and the Roasted Cashew Coconut Custard Sandwich. Yum.
Here’s another spot to add to your list of go-to’s for vegan ice cream in Philly: Pure Fare. The healthy grab-and-go lunch spot used to have vegan soft serve, but they just started making their own vegan ice cream, dairy-free custards (no milk products, but they do contain egg), and ice cream sandwiches this summer.
We took one for the team and tried them out ourselves. I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical that ice cream made primarily of avocados could taste like the real thing. But let me tell you, all of the flavors were absolutely deeeeelicous and the texture was super rich and creamy. If I hadn’t known ahead of time that I was eating vegan ice cream, I wouldn’t have even been able to tell the difference. Read more »

Free is always good, even if it’s health food—and to many, especially if it’s health food. Pure Fare is helping you celebrate this holiday season by giving away a free “goodie” with any item purchased between 12 and 3 p.m., every day, until Christmas Eve. These treats will change daily so stop by the Rittenhouse or the South Street location to enjoy one of their popular healthy favorites or some brand new creations while supplies last.
