Cake – $$
8501 Germantown Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19118
Since moving to Philadelphia a year ago, a lot of friends traveling through the city have asked me for recommendations. My response is usually “uhhhhhh idk”. It’s not that I don’t want to be helpful, but I’m a creature of habit and I tend to frequent the same 5 spots over and over. I’m trying to be a little bit more adventurous and try more things. I’m hoping this section of the blog will be a hub that will turn into a Philly Guide – Annie edition.
If nothing else, it’ll always have pretty pictures :)
First up – Cake. My favorite neighborhood in Philadelphia is hands down, Chestnut Hill. It’s super duper cute and quaint. It has tree-lined, cobblestone streets with boutique shops along both sides. One storefront always stood out to me – Cake. It’s not necessarily the name that stood out, but the fact that the entire store is basically a greenhouse. I looked it up and discovered that it’s a brunch/bakery eatery and I quickly put it on my list.
Today, on my husband’s 29th birthday, we finally visited. The greenery inside is very inviting, and the food is top notch. We also finished our brunch with a peanut butter chocolate tart, which was super rich and a perfect end to a fabulous meal.
