Today we met up with Charles’ sister (and now my sister too!) Kate – she was in Philly for the weekend so we decided to meet up for a meal. The word on the street is that Jack’s Firehouse is a good place for some good brunch action so we headed over there.
We were greeted at our table with some lovely banana bread, which was amazing, and some corn bread too.
Kate & I enjoyed some adult beverages with our brunch.
I skipped breakfast with the hopes of fully being able to enjoy my meal out but nothing could have prepared me for this – I ordered the Breakfast quesadilla expecting something big but manageable, but this thing was MASSIVE! I swear it had 9 eggs in there! I was able to eat half before surrendering – it was very tasty though!
Charles channeled his inner child and got chocolate chip pancakes
While Kate enjoyed a frittata.
It was fabulous to get to spend some time in Kate while she was in the city.
The heat today in the city was pretty horrible – way to hot to spend time outside in my opinion, but we did manage to pass by some people enjoying themselves the fountains.
We spent the rest of the day running a few errands and just enjoying a day where we had nothing planned. I love weekends like these, they are the absolute best!
I did manage to pick up some water ice on the way home – Strawberry Lemonade – my new favorite flavor!
A question for my Philly friends: Where is your favorite place to brunch in the city?
