Mercer Cafe, the small, beloved Port Richmond eatery, is expanding to the Navy Yard at 15th Street and Kitty Hawk.

The new location will have its grand opening on May 1, offering their breakfast and lunch menu, along with La Colombe Coffee, a grab-and-go market and lunch delivery.

What’s even more exciting is co-owner Dina Woltjen and her brother Vincent Tacconelli have decided to merge their businesses under one roof. The new Mercer Cafe will serve the famous Tacconelli’s pies, with their own brick oven in the cafe.

Unlike the original Port Richmond location, you won’t need to call ahead for your pizza dough. Customers can head right in and order from Mercer Cafe’s famous breakfast menu or Tacconelli’s renowned pies.

Mercer’s Cafe will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Sunday, May 3, they’ll have special hours for the Broad Street Run, so you can make that your motivation for the finish line.
