A quaint corner restaurant on Fabric Row, The Hungry Pigeon serves a daily-changing menu of food as comforting as its cozy, brick-lined interior. Expect original plates like house-made ricotta gnocchi, actual pigeon (which often sells out at dinner), and a simple grass-fed cheddar cheeseburger. The all-day spot also serves fresh pastries and breakfast sandwiches in the morning, like buttermilk biscuits and banana bread sticky buns. Tell us you don't feel warm and fuzzy already.
Sophisticated cocktails are served alongside modern farm-to-table dishes at this restaurant/pub in old-fashioned digs. Pair the farmhouse platter with a French 75; it won't disappoint.
Inspired by the trendy cat cafes of Japan, Kawaii Kitty Cafe on Fabric Row is part coffee shop, part cat adoption center, offering a bright, cozy environment for fine felines from the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to hang out with potential owners. Reservations are recommended -- not to mention, its after-hours movie nights and wine parties are scheduled well in advance. What does all of this really mean? Drinking coffee among a group of cats is a socially acceptable way to spend a Saturday night.
