Jake & Cooper’s Wine Bar

My new favorite spot in Manayunk has to be Jake & Cooper’s Wine Bar.

It’s Jackson approved so obviously it’s amazing!

It was also recently approved by Jackson’s new BFF – Harley – who is the brand new fur baby to my good friend Kate!

I loved this place so much that I hit it twice in one weekend (I think I was even there 2 times in 24 hours!)

Charles and I went there Saturday evening to enjoy dinner and drinks along Main Street Manayunk. It was a lovely evening for a date so I started out the evening with the Mint Blackberry Julip which was incredible.

Round 2 included beer for him and vino for her.

Would you believe that I had the same exact meal during my back to back visit? Yeah, I am crazy like that.

I enjoyed the Black Mission Fig pizza to carb up BEFORE my 18 mile run on Saturday night and then it was so amazing I was craving it again AFTER the run. Let’s be honest folks, after 18 miles the heart (and the tummy) wants what it wants and as far as I am concerned – I deserved it!

This bad boy had fontina and roquefort cheeses, hazelnuts, figs and a port wine glaze. Pretty much what I think heaven would be like, in the form of a pizza.

Other than the awesome pizza, the thing that caught my eye was this little sign.

Aside from craving more pizza after my run, I wanted some Sangria! It was the perfect excuse to enjoy a beautiful weekend day out with Kate and her new pup! The sangria and the company was delightful!

Along with my pizza, Kate & I also shared the Watermelon Arugula salad which was very good too. It included spiced sunflower seeds, french feta and a tasty watermelon dressing. I loved that it was served in between two watermelon wedges! Such a fun summer salad!

I love these end of summer days as the temperature begins to drop ever so slightly and Fall begins to fill the air. It’s lovely to enjoy eating outside while we can – winter will be here before we know it!

Do you have a favorite restaurant that you go back to again and again and order the same thing every time because you love it so much?

What is it?? Please share!

    I love Red Sangria at Anita’s Mexican Restaurant in Virginia. It’s the best I have had! There food is pretty amazing too! Love Kate’s dog – so cute and of course, Jackson couldn’t be more adorable!

  3. i recently did the same thing with Cuba Libre in Old City. We went one Monday and then went the following Monday with other people. I got the same amazing arugala and shrimp salad.
    I just made Sangria for my last toast to summer.

  4. I love places that allow pets. I seem to gravitate to them and love to give them my business!
    I can’t get behind that pizza – sorry! But I love that you love it. :)
