Meet John, a Grape Street resident who has some great food and drink recommendations around town. See what John thinks is unique about the Manayunk food, bar and shopping scene!
Do you live in Manayunk?
Yes. I've lived on Grape street for three years now.
What is your favorite thing to do around town?
I love to exercise on the Manayunk Bridge Trail. I try to go there every other morning before work to go for a run or a bike ride. I find it really relaxing.
Best place for drinks? Food?
My favorite place for drinks is Castle Roxx. It's kind of a long walk for me but it's worth it. I go to Sona a lot to eat out and love Greg's Kitchen for breakfast. All of those places really have great people working there, which is a huge reason why I go back.
Have you been to any MDC Events?
Yes I've been to a few. I really enjoy the StrEAT Festivals with all of the different food trucks. I also visited the Stroll the Street series during the summer almost every week on Cotton Street.
I love Manayunk because...
Because of all of the small business around town. It's really great to go into a store to shop or grab a drink at a bar where the owner is there and you can build a friendship with them.
