FITZWATER STREET PHILLY BAGELS
One of 2016's runaway hits is Fitzwater Street Philly Bagels, which opened its doors at 2001 Fitzwater in September. It is owned and operated by fifth generation bagel maker, Aaron Wagner. In an effort to provide more Philadelphians with the delicious, quality bagels that he and his family provide at South Street Philly Bagels and Chestnut Street Philly Bagels. There are often crowds waiting out front on weekend mornings!
ASK THE PHILLY HOME GIRLS: SO, WHAT ARE YOU ORDERING?
- Jeanne: The Bees Knees cocktail at Pub and Kitchen (more so in Fitler Square), latkes at Honey's Sit 'N Eat, and the mushroom crepe at So Crepe!
- Deirdre: The Sidecar. Nachos.
- Kristin: A veggie burger and beer at Grace Tavern... also, the cappuccino at Ultimo. Bees Knees is my favorite, too!
- Zoe: Lazaro's Pizza at 18th & South--among the top 3 non-pretentious pizza places in the city. Or a Burger at Sidecar.
- Yujean: Little Spoon Cafe for brunch. Early risers, take note - it opens at 7am! Magpie is one of my favorite places in the whole city. I always order a slice of pie and a cup of rooibos tea. Nam Son Bakery's banh mi game is strong too. (Even Philly Mag agrees!)
- Carly: Sweet Freedom Bakery - it's Philadelphia's first gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, and allergy-friendly bakery! They have amazing chocolate chip cookies!
- Stefania: I like Sidecar too! Crispy goat cheese salad and probably mushroom dip.
You can live in the center of all of these delectable locations. We're talking no more than a ten minute walk from any of the spots mentioned! 1704 Christian is in the center of Graduate Hospital neighborhood, linking you to South Street, Graduate Hospital, the Schuylkill River, and up and coming Point Breeze.
