Where to get stuffed French toast, egg sandwiches, and breakfast burritos for takeout, delivery, and outdoor dining

The Breakfast Den on South Street
| Paolo Jay Agbay

Remember brunch, with plates of fluffy omelets, fat breakfast burritos, and whipped cream–topped pancakes competing for table space with carafes of mimosas? It’s back in limited form, with restaurants now setting up tables for outdoor dining — but not everyone is ready to sit at a restaurant, even outside. That’s where breakfast and brunch takeout comes in.

A number of Philly restaurants have resumed outdoor dining. If that’s an option, it’s noted on the map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining on-premises at restaurants, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases, visit the City of Philadelphia website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio and sidewalk dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
