    Hidden Treasure

    Truly a great place to both gather and eat. Family run and truly good people. The Service is great and they really appreciate the repeat visitors. We drive from the Burbs almost every weekend. LOVE IT!

    excellent by far

    i live in port richmond and frequent this cafe often and i feel the same every time i go there, me and my husband love to go by ourselves and here we get to embrace each others company in a very good atmosphere. We are moving next year but we promised each other that when we do we will still travel to this cafe to get the excellent food we get all the time. I wish i could move this cafe to where we are moving too!

    Excellent food for catering a party!

    I had a 60th birthday party for my husband on May 7th, they delivered the food to the hall after hours. The food was excellent.

    A gem of a cafe.

    Pros: Amazing selections and food. A lot of very healthy but delicious choices on the menu. They have an omellete made with rapini (broccoli rabe) and feta cheese that is fantastic. Amazingly cheerful and fast service. (there a couple of hottie servers, too) Rather small, but always just filled enough to make you feel at home yet anonymous. The kind of place where you can talk without feeling stuffy or watched. I am always amazed at how fresh everything looks and tastes at this great little cafe. Especially the vegetables which I am always a bit too picky about. Not the frozen-thawed sort of taste I have unfortunately come to expect from most places in the city. I always have high expectations from any establishment that would be so bold to offer the selections on the menu here, but I have never been disappointed in any of my forays into this fine neighborhood cafe. Breakfast for two typically costs me from $20 - $25 with tip, and luch is usually about $25 - $30. Which would be somewhat steep if this were your typical diner-type spot, but it is not that kind of place. Don't come here expecting a $3.99 greasy bacon cheeseburger falling all over the place. The food is prepared perfectly and obviously with high quality ingredients, so it is priced accordingly. That is why I can't take any points away for price. Cons: The coffee here is too strong and a bit bitter, which is why I took a 1/2 point off for food. They could really look into a better brand or style of maker. the last couple of times I did try a cappuccino once and it was only fair, but I am not really much of a cappuccino drinker so take that with a grain of salt. I also really don't like the giant glass door that leads directly to the front counter of the super-busy pharmacy next door. The one time I was seated right next to it and I couldn't help but notice every person who walked in for their orthopedic shoes, or their lottery tickets, or their herpes medicine. (at least that is what is going on in my head) Whoever thought this was a good idea (presumably the pharmacy owner) needs to wake up. I don't mean to sound callous, but nobody wants to see the octogenarian population of this neighborhood dragging around their oxygen tanks while they are trying to enjoy their meal. - 1/2 point for atmosphere.

    Not just eggs and toast!

    Very clean, very friendly service and really good food! I will sometime travel half way across the city just to get breakfast or lunch! The prices are a little higher than you would expect, but then again it's not a lunch truck! They use ingredients that you just don't get in most breakfast/lunch spots in the city (outside of south philly). Like fontina cheese, lobster, brocoli rabe and so much more. If you want to have a breakfast or lunch that you can enjoy, in an atmosphere that is relaxed and friendly then this is the best your gonna get!

    Great local cafe

    You can't go wrong with the Mercer Cafe. Fantastic breakfast and lunch menu with a large variety of choices. The dining room is rather small and you may have to wait on a weekend morning. They also serve dinner on Wed, Thurs, and Friday nights. Lives up to the reviews!
