Outdoor dining well spaced apart, attentive service, delicious turkey burger and buffalo chicken burger, great fries. The dipping sauces are fantastic. Reasonably priced. Only downside is car noise but theres a nice wood barrier on the sidewalk.

This place is definitely overpriced but has delicious food! And the sauce for the fries are out of this world. Don't waste your time with the chili, it's just not worth the buck. Despite being overpriced, I would go back!

After staying in a small apartment down the street from here I frequently stopped in for some drinks, if you’re lucky to get a bar seat on a busy night you’ll get a front row seat at som seriously skilled bartenders, beyond the aesthetics and old school charm, this place has great brews, good food, and EXCELLENT service.

BUFFALO CHICKEN SANDWICH!!!!!! Seriously though get it. Also, the fireplace is legit during the winter, and the front doors open during the summer. Convenient dog hooks outside for the doggos while you eat, and they have the best d@mn staff around. Shout out to Caite - she's the best!

Dropped in for Army Navy game with a group of 7. Just found this spot right around the corner from our hotel. What a lucky find. Would travel from the other side of town for this quaint, cozy, and timeless joint where the service was as top notch as the food. An absolute hidden gem.

Quiant and cozy. Food and beer selection were good. This place has a love for the Flyers so that's a good thing!

I returned to Race Street Cafe for brunch recently and was not disappointed. Service was friendly and there were quite a few brunch selections that sounded great. In the end, I went with the feta and spinach omelet, which came with tater tots, choice of breakfast meat and toast, and a side of fruit. Everything was delicious!
