Amazing spot for anything edible. Went for lunch during the hop on hop off bus stop. Everything from oysters to fried chicken to donuts. Go hungry because you will want to eat everything. Followed our tour guides recommendations and we were not disappointed. The Amish...More

This will be THE first place I go to grab something to eat when I return to Philadelphia. The choices and quality for groceries and meals were mind-boggling. How do you choose? I was even able to buy a couple of souvenirs here.

However, as Philadelphia's number-one attraction, this comes at a price: crowds, almost oppressively packed in at peak times but no smaller (if anything the reverse) of an evening shortly before closing. If you want something from one of the more popular vendors, such as Beiler's...More
