From the outside, Earth Bread is nothing fancy. The downstairs bar is somewhat cold in appearance, but when you head up to the main dining area, this place really hits its charm. Almost loft-like, original art hanging on the walls, pew-like bench seats, mismatched steel railings separating the room areas, it had a cool atmosphere and hopping vibe.

Friday night, the place was pretty packed. Nice trendy crowd. There is a smaller upstairs bar too with a couple of couches and pub tables.

Simple menu, which is part of the charm. The main item: artisan pizzas. We shared the traditional and the Mexician (really tasty). The menu at this time was pizza, salads, a handlful of appetizers and deserts from the Night Kitchen. Simple and works well, don't expect more or you will be disappointed.

4 house beers on tap, their ESB, Mild, Gruit and Porter (a version of the old Heavyweight Brewing standard). You can order 13oz or 20oz glasses as well, which is a good thing. All of the beers are fresh and good, but you won't find any Buds, Coors or other macros.

A good 20 bottled beers and a good 6 or 7 guest taps. Mostly Belgians or locals PA breweries (Weyerbacher, Sly Fox, etc).

A unique dining experience. If you are with anyone who wants a standard macro beer, they won't find anything that pops out at them. They will either need to branch out and try a similiar micro or European version or have a glass of wine!

The wife and I were back in Philly, a bunch of weekends ago. We like Mt Airy/Germantown/Chestnut Hill/Fairmount/Whatever. There are not a lot of boundaries between all of these neighborhoods, but they are oh-so-beautiful, cozy, quaint, perfect for a chilly winter evening, morning, day.

We had tried once to stop at Earth Bread but it was closed. This time I did my homework and we went in on a Saturday afternoon before the crowds. Smallish place, we sat at the bar overlooking the pizza oven. There is also an upstairs section where families with babies were all headed.

4 beers on tap at the bar: Tripel, High Point Coffee Stout (nice and rich), Farmhouse, Dubbel and a Mild on hand pull. Also, 7 guest taps: Deschutes, Goose Island Sophie, Phila Brewing Co.

I like breweries who have guest taps to complement their short lineups, and I like it even more when a brewery offers housemade sodas and kombucha! Yessss....

Not bad prices, five bucks for a 13-oz glass and $6.50 for 20 ounces. The food was disappointing, though. You read about their flatbreads and you can't help but expect some amazing yumminess. When it comes out, it is a soggy-mushy mess of an overwhelmed dough. Toppings had no flavor.

Bartender was nice, beers are fun, place is warm. I will come back, no doubt.
