If you prefer not to be treated like prey, this is the place. They have high quality items and simply tell you the price, no real haggling. Ask for Jeff, he's helped me buy jewelry for all of my wives (a joke, but true)!!
This is a nice little spot, and offers some good java too. The staff are very friendly and have made some great recommendations to me after I've explained what interests me. The Book Trader is right down the street, so I usually hit both spots.
The bean is a fun little place, with great java and late hours. The clientele is usually an artistic group of kids, some of whom whether solo or in a group, will write or sketch at their table. The staff is friendly and never dawdle- very important when I need my caffeine fix.
Truly marvelous French pastries! The croissants are unbelievable, although everything is exceptional. The staff is always fast and friendly. Not really about the atmosphere ?? it??s all about the product. So I just grab and go.
An enjoyable little spot, with a nice (and usually low-key) wait staff, and excellent food. I make it here about once a year, and try to go on an off-night, because the seating can be a little close and I prefer to have some space.
Nice and easy, the staff are always available,pleasant and knowledgable. No frills, which works great for me on occasion. I just want to go in, locate and buy what I need.
What you see is what you get at Sweat. It's always clean, with up-to-date and well-maintained equiptment. The staff is beyond freindly, and this location offers a lot of classes. I take the spinning classes (it's a real workout, although they refuse to change the name to something more gritty) with Laura and Audrey, both unique and the classes zoom by.
My wife and I did a great deal of searching, and ultimately found Alphabet Academy to be the right fit us, and more importantly, for our two year old son. It has a large area for the kids, is always clean, a great "teacher" to child ratio, and each of my son's caretakers show true interest, attention and affection to the kids.
My two-year-old son radiates excitement and enthusiasm each time we approach the Please Touch Museum. It is pure joy to watch and experience his delight! What higher accolades could one offer. As advertised, the museum offers kids a hands-on experience with all of its exhibits. The museum itself is smart, clean and managed by staff that understand and cater to their clientele. It is housed in a wonderful structure, Memorial Hall, which was built for the 1876 Centennial Exhibition.
One of the top three pizza places in the PHila area. It's on the end of the Italian Market (think Rocky), and is a simple, corner pizza and steak shop, but the food exceptional- pizza and cheesesteaks.
