For the Love of Philly: Morning Glory

Garden Keeper Fritata
Simon and I live in a great neighborhood called Bella Vista and it has some amazing restaurants.  One of our Favorites is called Morning Glory.  Morning Glory is a Finer Dinner and it is a tiny gem of a restaurant. It is located on the south side corner of Fitzwater and 10th Street, and although its size is small the food is anything but your regular dinner fare.

The menu has eats like, the garden keeper fritata which is filled with potatoes, greens and ham, Monkey Bread French Toast with mangoes, bananas and caramel sauce, and Guinness Beef Stew.  Their specials are always changing with the season, and highly recommended.  This spot is a Philly Favorite when it comes to brunch.

Special: Mediterranean Scramble

Eggs over easy with sausage and a buttermilk biscuit.
 With limited space "be nice or leave" is a great motto as you are in close quarters with other dinners and can watch the line cooks prepare your meal.  There are plenty of other interesting things about Morning Glory.  They make their own ketchup (it is some of the best ketchup I have ever eaten).  They also make homemade buttermilk biscuits and there is always fresh fruit compote on every table.  When you order coffee it comes to you in a metal cup.

 You can always expect a wait to eat on the weekends at Morning Glory, and it is well worth the wait to get in.  If you are impatient and want to be seated right away go on one of the weekdays right before or after lunchtime.  Or if you can only make it on the weekend go early or late the wait is shorter than if you go between 10am and 1pm.

I like morning glory but I LOVE Honey's. You can never get in, though, sigh.
