Whether you want a springy garden backdrop for pancakes and flowing mimosas or would rather enjoy eggs Benedict at home, there are many ways that brunch is back for Philadelphians. So here are our picks for where to get brunch in Philly right now.

Wm. Mulherin’s Sons is serving a new locally sourced and hyper-seasonal brunch menu out of its historic hub in Fishtown. Featuring items like oatmeal brûlée, chestnut pancakes, spaghetti carbonara (it has eggs!), and shrimp n’ polenta, the brunch menu is even better at one of the restaurant’s lush streetside tables or back in the green garden, which will open in mid-April, but takeout and delivery are available as well.
