Bread >>> Agiato Bread Company at Main Street Market
A good roll and a crusty baguette are never hard to find when you’re Jim McAlesse, the man behind the delicious bread at Stephen Starr’s Parc on Rittenhouse Square. Now, McAlesse has his own bakery in Manayunk, where you’ll find him doling out crusty rolls and baguettes with crispy exteriors and chewy, airy insides. 4345 Main St., Manayunk; (215) 482-9500, agiatobread.com.
Breakfast Sandwiches >>> Casey’s Seafood Grille & Pub
Just the way Dad makes ’em, Casey’s create-your-own breakfast sandwiches are the perfect Sunday starter. The constant: one large grade-A egg, any style. You choose the cheese, the meat and the bread. 3529 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square; (610) 353-1212, caseysns.com.
Brunch >>> Nudy’s
Try something sweet, like fruit-and-whipped-cream-topped Belgian waffles. Or opt for the crab Benedict (with asparagus and hollandaise) or a signature omelet. Everything is downright delicious—and affordable. 292 E. Conestoga Road, Devon; (610) 687-1345, nudyscafes.com.
Brunch in Philadelphia (Casual) >>> Café Estelle
Café Estelle’s unpretentious environs, bottomless cups of organic, locally roasted coffee and sustainable practices are enough to recommend it. Then there’s the food: Everything from the pastries and bread to the bacon, turkey, mozzarella, mayo and club soda are made on site. We can’t get enough of the stuffed French toast, the breakfast pizzas and the homemade cinnamon buns. 444 N. Fourth St., Philadelphia; (215) 925-5080, cafeestelle.com.
