Many great Philly restaurants are tiny, with limited seating – frustrating if you don’t have an office or apartment nearby. Although there are plenty of benches & walls around the city, Tobey and I have an on-going quest to find spots with tables and chairs:

The courtyard behind the Logan Hotel on 18th (love the couches!):


The park on the corner of Cherry & 18th:


The park off 17th (between Ranstead & Locust – entrances on both – adorable turkey head spout on the fountain):


The plaza of the Comcast Center (off JFK Blvd.):


Indoors – the basement shopping mall of the Comcast Center:


The plaza in front of 30th Street Station. Tables and chairs, but also lounge swings, food trucks and occasional live music:

30 street

Outside the Convention Center on Arch Street between 12th & 14th:
