I have a monthly running breakfast date with a friend of mine, we refer to ourselves as the Breakfast Club- minus the teenage angst (sort of). Anyhow, we try to hit a new place each month… This past visit being The Fitzwater Cafe. I never thought it was more than a bakery of sorts. Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Upon entering, I immediately loved the vibe… Vintage diner meets Parisian cafe. We chose one of the cozy tables & was promptly offered a coffee (excellent service already). In true South Philly style, a fellow foodie told me to order the eggs purgatory- off the menu, of course. Although I was tempted, I went with my old standby: pancakes with a side of bacon. It should be noted that I consider myself a pancake (and pizza) connoisseur. These were light, not too fluffy and absolutely delicious. Needless to say, the Breakfast Club was pleased… Now if only Judd Nelson walked through the door!
