I had a grilled cheese made with local cheeses, fresh bacon, and roasted tomatoes. It was SO good! My husband and his friend had a very popular sandwich at DiNics and they both loved it.... More

Reading terminal market is a wonderful Philadelphia staple - and is a great rain or shine activity. No matter what type of cuisine you prefer, you'll find it here and at a reasonable price. Plus, it is so fun to browse the many vendors' offerings. The hardest part is definitely deciding what to eat!
