Took a trip into the city during a lunch break last month to see what it was all about. Parking was a hassle - but hey, it was Philly at lunch hour. Terrific selection - took a while to get acclimated to the organization. But they have a small kiosk in the back where you can look anything up, find its location in the store, and also its price - sweet. Woman behind counter didn't say boo to me during the 20 minutes I was there, so no points for service. Fantastic selection. But very uncomfortable - can barely even squeeze by someone else in an isle - makes for unenjoyable perusing. Some take out food, but no seating (isn't that required in PA???). If I lived/worked in the area, I'd probably hit 'em up more often.

This Foodery is a little more limited in terms of selection compared to the Foodery at Northern Liberties due to their limited store space, but they pack or at least try to pack as much of a punch into the shop as they can.
Although the store front is almost hallf the size of Nor Libs', the Washington Square location seems to get all the same seasonal/rare imports that the other Fooderies get as well. (case in point: I bought a four-pack of Goose Isand Bourbon County Stout here, as well as the last bottle of Bourbon County Coffee Stout)
Don't buy food here as the groceries/food is a front for laundering beer (Due to, I'm assuming, the oh-so-strange Philadelphia alcohol laws). If you're looking for good beer and are too lazy/scared to take the Market-Frankford line to Girard, then the Washington Square Foodery is for you.
