Philly: Brunch at Silk City Diner Bar & Lounge

We love to brunch and one of our go to places is Silk City on 435 Spring Garden.  Set in a vintage diner car that was built in 1952 by the Paterson Wagon Company, we like it for the casual and easy going atmosphere and the consistent good food (my favorite is the Mushroom and Parmesan Omelet).  The outdoor garden space is now open to diners – yay for Spring!
