Philly Food Diary: Restaurants You Have To Try On Your Next Trip To Philadelphia

Happy June! Summer is right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited. Since I am fully vaccinated, I was able to take a trip to the beautiful city of Philadelphia and discover some delicious food spots. I documented every meal and none of them were a disappointment. Feel free to save this guide for your next trip to the city of brotherly love!

Breakfast / Brunch Spots

If you haven't heard of La Colombe...are you living under a rock? They may be in your local grocery store and best known for those draft lattes. La Colombe was originated in Philadelphia so they have many coffee shops around the city. The vanilla iced latte was soo good and I even adored their bagel and cream cheese. They have so many options to choose from and I would try them instead of Starbucks on your next trip.

This cute coffee shop was just a three-minute walk from my hotel and made every second worth it. It's located in a cute corner and the coffee was pretty good. I enjoyed sipping my morning latte and people watching in their outside seating area.

Bud & Marilyn's

This was my brother's favorite restaurant pick from our entire trip. I have to say the food was really good and it was cooked really quickly. They are open for brunch and dinner. The brunch items featured above are the Crispy Cheese Curds, Fried Chicken Sandwich, and Chicken N Waffles.

Lunch / Dinner

 Hunger Burger

This place is like Shake Shack but way better. They even have mac and cheese which I didn't try but looked amazing. Located in the Reading Terminal Market, I recommend getting a cheeseburger and fries to fulfill your hunger.

Mexican food and a boujee atmosphere? I AM THERE! This was my favorite restaurant on this trip. The vibes were immaculate and I definitely recommend checking this place out for a date or girls' night out. The prices were a little higher than usual for Mexican food but it's so worth it. The food featured above is the Macho Nachos, Chicken Quesadillas, and Salsa and Queso Dip.


THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! Started off with the truffle mac and cheese, and I had the chicken parmigiana panini as my entree and I couldn't even finish half of it because I was so full. My brother ordered an Italian pizza which was very good and the dough was crispy and it melted in your mouth.

Geno's Steaks

You can't go to Philly without trying a Philly Cheesesteak, right? I am not a huge fan of cheesesteaks but I did enjoy it. The fries were basic but it's a part of the famous cheesesteak experience. Oh, and they're open 24/7 so you can enjoy one at any time of the day.


Another place in the Reading Terminal Market that you have to check out. I am so glad they don't have one located in Orlando, because I would be there every day. The doughnuts are so good and you taste the frosting more than the donut which I really like. They have so many donuts to choose from for just $1.45 each.

Insomnia Cookies Speakeasy / Cookie Lab

This place was on the radar for everyone and their mama on Saturday night. After waiting in an almost two-hour line, we had the chance to experience the new cookie lab located in South Philly. My phone didn't have the chance to eat first as you can see in the picture above but it was definitely worth the wait. The cookie lab allows you to create your own cookie and try these cookie milkshakes. Cookies start at $5 each and the cookie milkshakes were $14. It's very small inside which is why you have to wait so long in line but it's a cute vibe and something you should experience at least once. 

That is a wrap for the Philly food diaries. I enjoyed all these places and I hope you have the chance to visit some of them when you're in the area. If you want to see more content from my trip, make sure to follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my Youtube Channel for a Philly Vlog coming soon.
