The Corner Foodery
An expert mash-up of a beer emporium and a insanely delicious sandwich shop
Before The Corner Foodery opened in 2013, The Foodery — which had three existing locations in the city — was primarily known as a take-out beer institution, offering one of the best selections of to-go beer you could find.
With The Corner Foodery, they kicked it up a notch by teaming up with Chef John Taus of The Corner restaurant in Midtown Village to oversee a gourmet menu of sandwiches and house-cured charcuterie.
The menu boasts traditional cold hoagies which you can fill with a range of house-cured meats like mortadella, spicy sopressata, lonza, prosciutto and spicy coppa. Then there are specialty hoagies and hot sandwiches like the Godfather — a cold hoagie made with coppa, prosciutto, pepperoni and provolone on a long roll — and the Bambino Bianco — an insanely delicious hot sandwich made with fried mortadella, mozzarella cheese, a fried egg, and topped with balsamic vinegar on a round roll.
And then there’s the Porchetta, The Corner Foodery’s take on the classic roast pork sandwich. The Pochetta comes on a long hoagie roll — you can get seeded or unseeded, we recommend seeded — with a generous helping of succulent roast pork, aged provolone cheese, broccoli rabe and long hots for a little extra kick. It’s great. You should make a point of eating one as soon as possible.
The Corner Foodery sources the bread for their delicious sandwiched from Carangi Bakery in South Philadelphia. Carangi makes great bread and many of Philly’s best sandwich shops — like John’s Roast Pork — swear by Carangi’s bread.
Brunch at The Corner Foodery
Insider Tip: On Saturday and Sunday mornings, brunch at the Corner Foodery means a simple-yet-satisfying special: Kegs and Eggs. For just $5, score a delicious breakfast sandwich and a small beer.
We love the food so much at Corner Foodery, we almost forgot to mention the beer. But you should definitely not forget about the beer. The selection of bottles and cans is more than 600 strong and you can drink there or take it with you to go. There’s also six rotating beers on draft and they do growlers — 32 and 64 oz.
