Transcribed from notes dtd Su, 27 Feb 2011.

Located on the corner of S. 11th and Ellsworth Streets, I had been here many times before, but I simply did not take notes and especially not on one VERY memorable occasion when it snowed and I had to cab it out of South Philly and back to the train station.

The entry was on 11th Street, near the corner, and opened onto a small vestibule with a short flight of steps that led up to an ATM and what passed for the m.d.s. Next to the ATM was a brick archway, then a working wood-fired fireplace, followed by another brick archway and a series of high tables and chairs along the wall, stretching back to the lavatories. The long "U"-shaped bar ran along Ellsworth Street and held two (2) tap towers, each with eight (8) taps, fifteen (15) of which were CO2 driven and one (1) was N2. Below the back bar were six (6) coolers with three (3) shelves each for bottles. The back bar held a central mirror with shelves for liquor and glassware. Through the brick portals was the dining room with a combination of booths fronted by tables as well as standard tables and chairs.

Atmosphere: Low-key lighting; lots of wood; a friendly waitstaff; good (but not loud) music. I really dig the windows that fold open in the warmer months.

Food: I had the Norwegian Eggs Benedict (with smoked salmon). Yum!

Mom Test: She would not come here on her own, but neither would she be totally put off. Worth a visit!

Went here for Beer/brunch. Great selection of beers and they do some cool flights. Atmosphere is pretty cool, brick hardwood, country feel. Have some good beers on the bottle list and the food was excellent. Def would comeback for lunch dinner or drinks...
