Café La Maude

Café La Maude in Northern Liberties is one of the best places you can spend a morning in Philly. This NoLibs French-Lebanese BYOB serves everything from a Croque Madame to Foul Moudamas, along with La Colombe coffee, and they do it seven days a week. Some of the dishes on the menu can be a little pricey, like the $19 omelet, but it comes with a little salad, fruit, and a side of caramelized onion and Za’atar-seasoned potatoes, which should help you rationalize the decision a bit.

If you’re “sick” or take off on a random Friday, come in on a weekday so you can take advantage of one of the more unique brunch spots in Philly. Come on a weekend and you’ll probably leave thinking the space is cramped, but there’s a certain charm in the hustle of the servers as they bob and weave around the dining tables, balancing lattes and shakshuka like breakfast ballerinas. And if you need to kill time while you wait for a table, check out the plant shop next door.
