Located in America’s most historic square mile just steps from Washington Square Park, the Morris House Hotel is an escape to privacy from the exciting city streets. Step off our historic property into the nation’s oldest diamond district, two blocks from the Walnut Street Theater, the first theater in the United States. Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell—two of the most treasured testaments to America’s freedom—are only two blocks away.
Start here and go anywhere. The city’s treasures wait.
SINCE 1884, we’ve been serving up the same things: fresh food, frosty drinks and good, old-fashioned conversation. We could talk for hours about our history, our star-studded cast of diners, blah blah blah. But, for now, that’s beside the point. Grab yourself a stool at the bar and order a cold one.
Our mission is to deliver the brightest, freshest & most flavorful food at a reasonable price. All of our food is prepared daily.Nothing is ever prepackaged, canned or frozen. We trim, marinate & prepare all of our meat on premise. Guacamole & salsas are prepared several times each day.We use small independent purveyors whenever possible.
We provide extraordinary food experiences, inspired by our legacy. Also, we just really love cheese. We are a pioneering specialty food retailer and importer that began with a modest shop in the now-iconic South Philadelphia Italian Market in 1939; today, we employ more than 350 proud team members and have evolved into a community-driven enterprise with our five retail locations, catering, import and e-commerce divisions.
Set in the heart of Center City Philadelphia, this kitschy, energetic space gives off vibes that are equal parts 1960s ski lodge and Brady family living room: all stone walls and shag carpet (and no, our servers don’t dress like Alice). But just like a real family home, the kitchen is where the real action is. Timeless favorites like fried chicken and waffles, macaroni and cheese, Thanksgiving turkey dinner and chocolate layer cake speak to our shared loves of comfort food and nostalgia. Pull up a seat near the roaring see-through fireplace, grab a playful specialty cocktail and let us know what you’re in the mood to eat.
