Three Spots for Mother’s Day Lunch

May 8, 2018

If Mother’s Day snuck up on you, you’re not alone!

Finding the perfect gift for Mom or the other ladies in your life, especially in a pinch, can be a challenge. Instead of wrapping up a gift she may or may not need or even want, give her something every woman can enjoy: the gift of time!

Schedule a Sunday lunch to celebrate the moms in your family. Having a relaxing and delicious meal with loved ones is a great way to give back to the ladies who give so much throughout the year.

There are lots of renowned lunch spots in Philadelphia, including many near your Chestnut Square apartment, sure to put a smile on Mom’s face. Here a few of the standouts:

Roots Café: Farm-to-table freshness is the name of the game at Roots Café, one block from your Chestnut Square apartment. The space features indoor and outdoor dining, with the latter being a perfect fit for a (hopefully!) seasonal spring Mother’s Day. The café offers breakfast and lunch menus—stocked with quiche, soups, salads and sandwiches—with ingredients sourced from local farms, so you’re not only eating well, you’re supporting the local economy!

Market Street Grill: Three blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment, Market Street Grill is frequently applauded as one of the best breakfast spots in the area, including winning Main Line Today’s Best Breakfast award. If you’re after big portions on a small budget, this is your go-to spot. With pancakes that literally cover the entire plate, or lunch options for under $10, Market Street Grill will satisfy both your wallet and your appetite.

Spicy Pig Café: With a unique blend of American and Thai cuisine, Spicy Pig Café, a half-mile from your Chestnut Square apartment, will add some new flavors to your traditional Mother’s day outing. From staples like pancakes and French toast to more adventurous eats like Congee soup and Pad See Ew, Spicy Pig’s breakfast and lunch options will offer something for diners of all tastes.
