Philadelphia: High Street on Market
Why It's Hot: Under the direction of super-hot chef Eli Kulp, this reimagining of the cafe next door to Fork is really coming into its own. Baker Alex Bois is putting out some of the best breads this side of the Atlantic, found in eclectic breakfast sandwiches and now, regular ol’ bagels, and pastry chef Sam Kincaid is also killing the baked-goods beat with her inventive pastries.
Must Order: Beet-cured salmon on pretzel roll with celery cream cheese ($9), The Hickory Town (Lancaster bologna, farm egg, Amish horseradish cheddar, gherkin mayo, fried red onions; $8.50), Red Eye Danish (coffee gravy, Benton’s smoked ham, Gruyère; $3.50)
Insider Tip: Rival Bros. coffee is always good, but here the beans get special treatment, whether you splurge on a latte or sip it straight. For a tipsier morning, ask about the selection of house-bottled cocktails or pickle-garnished Bloody Mary.
Hit It Up: Saturday-Sunday, 8 AM-3:30 PM
