Crowded & congested. Not a pleasant experience. It would be ok if you knew what you wanted but just to browse it was difficult.

Love it here so much! The food options are amazing! We come here every time we visit Philadelphia. I highly recommend Dinic’s, Hershel’s Deli, Carmen’s, and of course Beiler’s donuts for desert!
