I love the small-town feel of Manayunk. It’s just outside of Center City, and the suburban feel easily reminds me of home! Tbaar is the best place to get bubble tea along Main Street in Manayunk. Pop into Taqueria Feliz during happy hour for discounted tacos and cheesy nachos (a local favorite!), and try Winnie’s Le Bus for brunch with friends.
Vault + Vine is a great spot to relax or study. I love to come here for the coffee and to do work when I need a change of space. They have beautiful plants and flowers for sale, too!
Hot take: Dalessandro’s in Roxborough is where everyone should go to get the best cheesesteak in Philly. Nothing else compares! Take a spin by The Spiral Bookcase for a great selection of books and gifts for all readers—plus say hi to the owner’s cat!
There’s always something to do or a new place to check out in Northwest Philly, like the annual StrEAT Food Festival in Manayunk. And plus, you can literally walk everywhere, so you’ll never be bored!
