Philadelphia is a city known for its killer brunches, but Sidecar is a major contender for the hotly contested and coveted title of “best brunch.” Serving such delicious hangover cures every Saturday and Sunday like chorizo gravy over buttermilk biscuits or chicken fried chicken (plus a killer Bloody Mary), this place delivers on all aspects: food, ambience, and super-friendly service.
The decor is retro kitsch, with slowly revolving silver fans and pictures of Hulk Hogan squirreled behind the bottles of liquor at the mirrored bar. And the coffee is endless, with servers constantly refilling your cup before you can finish half of your drink.
If you’re not sure about what you want, be sure to ask the friendly and knowledgable staff for any recommendations. If brunch isn’t quite your thing, have no fear: Sidecar also delivers terrific plates for dinner and drool-worthy snacks alongside their extensive drink menu. Helpful tip: On Sundays, all pork dishes (think carnitas, nachos, and pulled pork barbequed to perfection) are half off, along with $1 off drafts.
