Passyunk Square is Booming!

Recently, the talk around town lies within Passyunk Square. New businesses, restaurants and events are popping up, enticing neighbors to come out and enjoy their community.

Coffee Dessert bar was pitched this week before the Passyunk Square Civic Association’s zoning committee. The idea to open a coffee shop and bakery at 12th and Ellsworth St. sure smells sweet! Serving Green Street Roaster’s coffee, this would most likely become a stop-and-go style cafe seating just over 10 people.

If you are searching for more of sit and eat style restaurant, than you may be pleased to welcome Porto to the neighborhood. At 11th and Wharton, this Portuguese influenced cuisine will offer breakfast, brunch and lunch. This space was completely renovated with state of the art appliances and vibrant decor. Be sure to stop in on Saturday and Sunday from 9-5 and don’t forget to BYOB! This is formerly the site of Carmen’s Country Kitchen and if you’ve been in the neighborhood long enough you what she put the “C” in. Let’s hope Porto can leave as lasting an impression on this space – BIG shoes to fill indeed!
