Help! I'm looking for a Specific Breakfast Place in Philly Sat, 12/20/08 10:05 AM (permalink)
Hi everyone,
I remember hearing about an ecclectic breakfast place in Philly and I don't remember the name or where I read about it. All I know is that it's in Philly, it was compared to the Friendly Toast in Portsmouth, NH, and the owner offers a "chef's table" in the back of their pickup truck parked out front.
Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks
 
Dave

    Just got back from a breakfast of Raspberry, Oatmeal and Coconut pancakes at Carman's Country Kitchen.  Carman's is open Friday thru Monday from 8 AM to 2 PM.  Same day reservations are accepted.  Closed the Friday after Chrismas.

    Here is my link:  Carman's Country Kitchen

      Get this.

      I have a friend who lives literally less than two blocks from this place.  I stayed with her last New Year's and we walked past every time we did any walking around south Philly.  As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure that we walked PAST this place on our way to her taking me to "the best cheesesteak in Philly" - a "locals" place - not the touristy crap - you know....Geno's!  But, I digress. 

      I wanted to go there (just because it looked cool, not because of anything I read) - but, my friend (did I mention that she lives less than two blocks away) had never been - and didn't know anyone else who had, either.  On my way out of town, though, I snapped this photo...



      Forget the not-so-hidden racism that you'll find around the corner at the cheese steak joint, as long as you have greenbacks at Carman's, your business is welcome!

          Oh, they were most definitely closed.

            Thank you Holly. Now I remember, I read about Carman's on your site.
