Best of Philly

2016 All-Day Cafe

Hungry Pigeon

Scott Schroeder’s cafe will start your day with the best breakfast sandwich in town, followed by a solid, casual lunch. Then, like the weirdest Transformer ever, it morphs into a more formal table-service restaurant at dinner, with a menu that reads like a smart chef cooking whatever the hell he feels like. Goat stroganoff? Mexican seafood cocktail? Steamed clams over orechiette, or a half pigeon served with one foot still attached? Absolutely. And we’ll happily eat it all.
