Queen Village has blossomed with food and drink options in recent years.
Red Hook Coffee & Tea and The Bagel Place are casual stops for breakfast; the former hits the spot for coffee and vegan breakfasts, and the latter offers 21 types of bagels with 16 spreads, plus a robust sandwich menu. Australian brunch staple Ants Pants Cafe fills the brunch niche, cooking up hashes and a colorful salmon platter. Ox Coffee, on Third Street, serves New York-roasted Stumptown Coffee out of trendy, airy digs with snacks and dairy products sourced from Lancaster and surrounding farms.
For lunch, a reliably tasty cheesesteak can be picked up at Jim’s Steaks on South Street for lunch, or a hearty, boxy slice from Square Pie can be grabbed on East Passyunk Avenue. Hungry Pigeon is known for all-day dining, though it expertly puts together a grass-fed cheeseburger with fries, with lighter bites like a waldorf salad or pork and beans soup also available on the lunch menu.
Chef Jason Cichonski offers world-class dining at Ela, offering New American plates like baked trout and duck leg in a modern atmosphere. For an ethnic experience, Fez Moroccan whips up shish kabobs and couscous in a relaxed setting with hookah pipes.
Drinks flow at Tattooed Mom on South Street, offering a funky, eyebrow-raising environment with billiards, a vegetarian menu and drink options for everyone under the sun.
And, for a treat, Sweettooth is a classic-feeling candy store that curates hundreds of chocolate, lollipop, gum, taffy and ice cream varieties.
Fabric Row, on Fourth Street, is the marquee attraction in Queen Village, where streets are charged with energy on First Fridays and sidewalks are dotted with an eclectic selection of shops. Bus Stop Boutique is known for selling well-crafted Oxford shoes for women; Moon + Arrow vends accessories and knick-knacks inspired by nature; new-to-the-scene boutique Yowie showcases quirky but easy to implement pieces of home decor curated from around the world.
For parks, Weccacoe Playground borrows from the best of New York’s square-block parks, mixing a concrete playground with ample green space and shrubbery. Elsewhere, Mario Lanza Park, along Queen Street, is an ideal green space for reading, eating a snack or participating in small community events held on holidays.
Theater for the Living Arts, meanwhile, hosts touring indie-music acts from around the world in an intimate environment with cinema seating.
