Tall Poppy Bagels at Liberty Kitchen
Neighborhood: Kensington • Cuisine: Bagels

This just in from Alex Jones: “Brewer/baker/charcuterie-maker Sarah Thompson will be at Liberty Kitchen with her Tall Poppy Bagels pop-up. Get ’em in plain, everything, poppyseed, and sesame (with a strong possibility of cinnamon raisin) or get them as a sandwich with sweet or savory seasonal schmears by LK’s Matt Buddah. 10am till sellout on Sunday.” So yeah. Go do that.

Neighborhood: Fishtown • Cuisine: Kinda Japanese-y

I haven’t been back since I reviewed it. And that just makes me sad because, seriously, Nunu has some of the best bar snacks of anywhere in the city. So this weekend, I’m headed back to Fishtown to get sloppy on whiskey cocktails and eat milkbread with miso cheese spread, spicy tuna dip and furikake cheese fries. I can’t wait.

Delice et Chocolate
Neighborhood: Ardmore • Cuisine: French

Saturday morning croissants and a box of macarons for Sunday. I might stick around for a ham and cheese crepe, too. Depends on just how French I’m feeling and how good the coffee smells.
