The morning after the Mews, we went to Phil's. There was no contesting this dining choice- I threatened Beth and told her I wouldn't come celebrate her birthday unless we got to go to Phil's. The conversation went something like this:
Me: I'm only coming if we get to have brunch at Phil's
Beth: First of all, Phil's isn't classy enough to have "brunch", and yes we can go!
I guess Phil's is more of a breakfast joint than a brunch spot, but any way you put it it is fantastic. They have a slew of specials that all translate into tons of food for only $4.25-4.95.
My special was the any kind of pancake and sausage or home fries special (I think a #4?):
And I like mine with chocolate chip pancakes and sausage. These pancakes are the reason you should go to Phil's. They are light and fluffy and speckled with warm gooey chocolate chips. They are definitely not for the faint of heart- the chocolate makes these very, very rich.
Speaking of being rich, that is what comes to mind when I look at Beth's eggs benedict:
She decided to go fancy and strayed from the specials board to order this eggs benedict with home fries. I think it was a smart choice on her part- it definitely looked worth it.
I wanted to take a picture of the outside of the restaurant because it is just so quintessential American breakfast-nook. The service is fast, food good and cheap, and when you sit down you just feel at home.
