Just got back from a lunch time visit to The Foodery.
My office is about a 15 minute walk and I had been meaning to get over there forever and today was the day.
It's tucked into a little space, but the space is used well. The entire right hand side of the room and the back wall are lined with coolers separated by origin (Local Micros, US Micros, then sections for internationals).
The selection is good, but nothing truly out of the ordinary. They did have some larger bottles and magnums at the register but I didn't really get a chance to check them out.
I ended up raiding the German cooler as that I was in the mood for. I made my own six pack and it ended up costing $24 which is high, but like others have said I would have paid more at a bar.
All in all, The Foodery is a decent option if you live in the area. I'll probably stick with Pinocchio's as it's closer to home.

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.
