Ants Pants Cafe - An Australian Inspired Brunch/Lunch Cafe with Two Locations Along South Street

Recommended Posts

Philly seems to have a good breakfast/brunch/lunch only scene.  Cafes that are open daily in the morning to mid-afternoon.  Something DC doesn't really do well.

Ants Pants Cafe (2212 South Street location) is a casual store front style cafe, with a small window counter, open kitchen in front, and two small dining rooms in back.  The cafe is inspired by similar type joints in Sydney Australia, where one of the owners lived and worked.  The menu offers various takes on toasts, omelettes, Philly-style rolls, and scrambles as well as a selection of pancakes, French toast and sandwiches. 

The Thanksgiving inspired breakfast special was stuffing hash with chorizo.  A bowl of sliced chorizo, cubed stuffing bread and sweet potatoes hashed up with onions and topped with friend eggs.  It was pretty much elevated stoner, hangover food.  I highly recommend. 

The spinach, goat cheese, and caramelized onion omelette was also very tasty.

If it wasn't so cold out, I would have ordered one of their milkshakes, which looked excellent.

If you are hungry, hanging out along South Street, in either the Graduate Hospital or Society Hill neighborhoods, Ants Pants is a good option.

Cash only.
