Honey's Sit 'n' Eat, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

800 N. 4th Street
Philadelphia , Pennsylvania
Tel: 215 925 1150's insider take:

When Honey's opened in March 2005, the kitchen closed down at 4 pm each day, but fans demanded the restaurant's Southern-Jewish comfort food after brunch hours and owners Ellen Mogell and Jeb Woody acquiesced. Now, tattooed Northern Liberties hipsters and a handful of Old City dwellers file in from 8 am to 10 pm on weekdays (sadly, weekend hours haven't changed) to fill up on chicken-fried steak and house-made biscuits, latkes with applesauce and sour cream, challah French toast, and plate-sized pancakes. The best way to pick your meal is to ogle what the waiters are trotting across the dining room's pine floor (the wood was salvaged from an old barn, the countertops came from a sewing factory). Just choose quickly, especially on weekends: The hungry folks on the line snaking out the door all want a piece of the rollicking, high-calorie action too.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 8 am to 10 pm, Sundays 8 am to 4 pm.
