Good Morning, Philadelphia!

by Amanda Ruzann

Philly’s an amazing place in the early morning. When I step off of my bus at 17th and Chestnut and head north, the sky is still dark, but I can almost hear the low-pitched hum of a scene about to explode into a cacophony of urban hustle and bustle when the sun rises.

Here at the Comcast Center, we’re nestled next to the largest transportation hub at the heart of the city, and we sit at the base of the tallest skyscraper, laden with corporate offices. Every morning, we see streams of people headed from the station, up the winding stairs to their daily work. And we know where they’re stopping for their morning fuel!
You’ve always been able to find the highest quality illy coffee and the best pastries the city has to offer at our Coffee Bar. (Le Bec Fin croissants, anyone?) Now we’re featuring some new breakfast options to start your day off the right way.

Breakfast sandwiches are a favorite around the city, found at every food cart and languishing under the heat lamps at convenience stores. But we’re doing ours the Di Bruno’s way – stuffed full of gourmet ingredients and new taste sensations. You might try the DB Classic, featuring fried eggs with ham, our homemade cheese spread, and spicy mustard on a rosemary foccacia. My personal favorite is the “Always Hungry in Philadelphia” – a French baguette loaded with fried eggs, Swiss cheese, crispy bacon, fresh spinach and tomato. We also offer sweet breakfast paninis and vegetarian options, and we’ll grill them up for you to order!

If you’re feeling nostalgic, or inspired by Goldilocks, our Home-style Oatmeal Bar is the choice for you. We’ll dish you out some of our all-natural oatmeal, and it’s up to you to decide what you’d like on it – craisins, walnuts, chocolate chips, coconut…. let your fancy take you!

Fun breakfast facts:

-Breakfast consumption may improve cognitive function (brain food, anyone?)

-Those who skip breakfast have slower reaction times and are more accident-prone.

-Breakfast reduces fatigue and sleepiness in the mid-morning hours; helps banish away the blues; increases alertness, and helps one function more efficiently.

Need I say more? Swing on by and pay us a visit to start your day off right, with a belly full of the highest-quality food for which Di Bruno’s is famous.

See you at 7 am tomorrow!
