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

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.

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!

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