Throughout Philadelphia and the Countryside™, restaurants are celebrating local farms and fresh, organic ingredients by offering sustainable cuisine.
Former White Dog Café owner Judy Wicks spearheaded the city’s sustainable cuisine movement in the 1980s. Since then, she has become a national icon in the sustainable community, and deliciously fresh, local cuisine has spread to restaurants throughout Philadelphia.
In upscale dining destinations, BYOBs and even ice cream parlors, farm-fresh cuisine is making a big, delicious impact in Philadelphia.

Breakfast and lunch comfort fare comes to Graduate Hosptial
This Honey’s is the second Honey’s location. The original location opened in Northern Liberties in 2005, and has basically been overflowing for breakfast and lunch service at 4th and Brown ever since.
The new location has pretty much the same menu as the original — look out for delicious favorites like Challah French Toast, Brisket Soft Tacos, Fried Green Tomatoes, Country Fried Steak, Patty Melts, Milkshakes and a lot more — but the new location is larger than the original, so we’re hoping the waits on weekends won’t be as long.View More
