    Take Out Food

    We ordered food for our staff lunch. I had a salad and the dressing, was so heavy and thick, I would say made from shortning not oil, it was that thick. The cookie that came with the lunch was so hard and stale. Fruit salad was not that great either. Most everyone that had lunch was not impressed at all witht he food quality

    hidden jewel

    I was shocked when I noticed that this cafe has a really cute sit-down restaurant portion. I went for brunch/lunch - good was REALLY good - there seem to be a focus on local-grown foods. Was able to feed a vegan, a celiac, and a carnivore for under $35 total - I'm impressed!

    My New Brunch Spot

    Just had brunch at Gold Standard this morning - really good! I had the eggs Benedict with spinach and tomato. Everything was really fresh and delicious. I thought I had to travel out of West Philly for some good brunch - but now I know there's a great brunch spot just around the corner.

    Not recommended

    I never liked Abbraccio, and I don't really like Gold Standard for the same reasons. Their dinner menu seems similar- overpriced for quality. Kudos to them for adding a breakfast/brunch option. I wish they'd focus on that, make the value of that menu better, and stop trying to be an upscale restaurant. W. Philly could really use a good all-day breakfast place (the Upenn Diner is not a great option) and Gold Standard had potential to be that.

    Nice new spot

    I'm not sure why these owners thought it wise to open a coffee shop smack in between two other local shops, but they did. And honestly, Gold Standard is nicer. There's also lots of outdoor seating, which is cool for people- watching on nice days. The upside: it's a little more upscale. so one could ostensibly take a date there to start the night. There is also a food menu (which I didn't try-- only expresso). The downside: it's a little more upscale! So sitting for hours on one cup of joe is not advised! It is also a little pricey: desserts are $6 for tiny, sad- looking slices of pie. I like this place's location, but really feel like they are trying to do too much-- coffee, breakfast-lunch-dinner-dessert, byob by night, etc.
