Over the years, Manayunk has become a crowd favorite for its top-notch bar and restaurant scene—but we’re here to let you in on Manayunk’s best kept secret: brunch. Check out these tasty options on Main Street to make your next brunch easy like Sunday morning.
Lucky’s Last Chance
Lucky’s brunch is not for the faint of heart. With a menu that’s heavy on decadent flavor with a dash of something sometimes-boozy, this is for the serious bruncher with a big appetite.
Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant
If you’ve ever found yourself craving smooth morning jazz over a breakfast buffet, then Manayunk Brewery is your dream come true. They offer live jazz every Sunday from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., so there’s plenty of time to stroll in, put your feet up, and enjoy the most important meal of the day.
It’s often said that anything worth doing is worth doing well. Winnie’s does just that. You can’t go wrong with their brunch classics and house specials, cooked and seasoned to perfection.
Bourbon Blue does brunch like it does everything else: with a sweet Southern flair. For some hearty and sometimes off-beat options, Bourbon Blue delivers.
The Goat’s Beard
With an emphasis on fresh ingredients and unique menu options, The Goat’s Beard likes to keep things local, with a culinary influence from around the world.
A homey Manayunk gem tucked away on Umbria Street that’s practically a local secret (until now). Get your taste buds involved with their breakfast classics and signature menu items, to eat in or take out.
Breakfast is not just their specialty, it’s all they do. Check out this cozy, family-run business for an affordable crowd-pleaser.
The Juice Merchant
Since 2014, this has been the place to go for “healing” food and juices made with 100% organic ingredients—but now it’s also the place to be for a healthy brunch. They’ve recently unveiled a brand-new, scrumptious fall menu just in time to celebrate the season.
If you’re looking for a quick morning pick-me-up, grab a pastry or delicious panini from Volo Coffeehouse, along with a cup of Philadelphia’s own La Colombe Coffee Roasters!
Well, it looks like the secret is out. Wipe the sleep from your eyes on Sunday morning and bring the family to Main Street for a delicious weekend wakeup call. Let’s do brunch!
