Fork Restaurant's owner Ellen Yin and Chef Eli Kulp have recently opened High Street on Market, a charming cafe offering hearty-yet-refined breakfast and lunch options that are poised to capture the hearts of Philadelphians. Situated adjacent to Fork in the Old City neighborhood, this space, which once housed Fork, Etc., has seating for twenty or so diners, who order at the sleek counter in the morning, and receive table service at lunch. The menus are posted on chalkboards in a flawless font, which is the first clue that this place pays attention to detail.

Breakfast beverages include Rival Brothers coffee, tea and OJ, and the food choices range from unusual savory pastries (such as the "Red Eye" Danish with smoked ham, gruyere and coffee gravy), to creative breakfast sandwiches (like pastrami, spiced hash, roaster peppers and onions, Russian dressing and a farm egg) on homemade kaiser rolls, to elegant sweet bites (a la the clevery named Choux-fly with molasses cream and blackberry jam in a cream puff shell). The homemade breads are the stars of the show, with a number of gorgeous specimens available for purchase by the loaf. These breads combine an impossible pairing of chewy, dense exterior and interiors with the perfect soft crumb, and come in varities rarely seen on the average bakery shelf: buckwheat cherry, vegetable ash, roasted potato, and more. The flavors and textures are wonderful enough to eschew butter, although cultured, daisy-yellow butter is available should you choose to indulge.

The deliciousness continues at lunch with snacks, sandwiches, pizzas, salads that go well above and beyond the usual stuff of cafe menus. Duck meatballs on seeded semolina, an autumn panzanella salad with squash, kale and fruit, and ribollita soup are just a few highlights among many other promising items. Dinner service will begin in October, which is sure to feature more knockout dishes.

We get the feeling that High Street on Market will emerge as one of the new brunch and power lunch hot spots, so get on over there to check it out before the secret is out!


Food Notes: Brewing, breakfast and the Bountiful Market

Michelle Dixon and Lindsay Pennock will be rectifying a grievous oversight with the opening of 70 Acre Brew Co. in Sherwood Park later this spring.

“It’s something we’ve discussed a lot over the years,” says Dixon, who with Pennock owns the new brewery and taproom at 310, 6000 Buckingham Drive. “The craft beer scene has been growing in Alberta, but we hadn’t seen anything specifically come out of Strathcona County or Sherwood Park. We wondered why that would be, and decided to take action.”

Food Notes: Brewing, breakfast and the Bountiful Market Back to video

Both veterans of the hospitality industry, Pennock and Dixon began planning for the brewery about three years ago. The two were well on the way with 70 Acre when the pandemic hit, so instead of hunkering down and waiting, they shifted the focus away from the taproom and dining area towards the distribution side of things, purchasing a canning line and a labeller. It’s been a long hard road, but on April 5 the first brewing took place. By the end of the month they’ll be shipping their initial canned offerings to retail liquor stores in the Sherwood Park area, where they plan to concentrate for the time being.


The Breakfasts You Must Try First

*Middle Child, Washington Square West
A hipster luncheonette that does a solid, greasy-spoon style breakfast with some modern twists — like those breakfast sandwiches oozing Cooper sharp, blintz toast and hand-rolled bagels every morning. 248 South 11th Street

*High Street on Market, Old City
You already know how good the bread and baked goods are at High Street. And at breakfast, they form the base of a menu that also includes new-school classics like Old Bay fried potatoes, avocado toast with fresh ricotta and an egg sandwich called The Forager with king oyster mushrooms, kale and black trumpet mayo. 308 Market Street

*The Dutch, Pennsport
You care about breakfast? Then come to this breakfast specialist, where regional delicacies like ring bologna benedict and Dutch babies are the stars of the show. 1527 South 4th Street

Vernick Coffee Bar, Center City
It took a long time for Greg Vernick to expand on his award-winning first restaurant. And while we’re still waiting on Vernick Fish, what we do have is his breakfast (and lunch) restaurant open inside the Comcast Technology Center, offering fresh bakery items, yogurt parfait, smoked salmon and buckwheat crepes, crab timbale and tableside pour-overs. Fancy, yes. But also warm, comforting and welcoming, which is a line that Vernick is very skilled at walking. 1800 Arch Street

*Honey’s Sit ‘n Eat, Graduate Hospital, Northern Liberties
Owners Jeb Woody and Ellen Mogell opened the original Honey’s in NoLibs just so they didn’t have to go all the way to South Philly for huevos rancheros and pancakes on the weekends. Now, years later, there are two locations and both of them do some of the best Southern-fried, down-home breakfasts anywhere in the city. 2101 South Street, 800 North 4th Street

*Federal Donuts, Everywhere
I can’t believe that no one thought of doing a combo fried-chicken-and-donut-shop in Philly before Michael Solomonov did. And now, I can’t imagine living in Philly without it.

*Hungry Pigeon, Queen Village
Another place that makes this list on the strength of their breakfast sandwich (get it with scrapple — trust me). But Hungry Pigeon also has one of the best bakers in the city working in the back (Pat O’Malley), and you’d be an idiot if you passed up a shot at his croissants or cinnamon rolls. 743 South 4th Street

*Jezabel’s Cafe, Spruce Hill
Argentinian pastries, cafe con leche, and bizcochos spread with dulce de leche. 206 South 45th Street

Breakfast is the best meal of the day at No Toro Café, Off Street Cafe in Artesia

Share this:

With the clarity of 20/20 hindsight, I’m somewhat amazed to realize how much breakfast has always meant to me.

While my friends gobbled bowls of Froot Loops and Lucky Charms in the morning, as a young lad I worked on perfecting my scrambled eggs (creamy, but with just the hint of a crust), and a properly arranged and proportioned bagel with lox and cream cheese. There also was much internal debate over whether the bagel should be toasted or not, plain or onion, with a slice of red onion or not. The complications were downright Talmudic.

Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate the joys of eggs Benedict consumed with a well-veggied Bloody Mary…and the virtues of pancakes versus waffles. And I’m surely not alone in my obsession with the first meal of the day, especially here in Southern California, where restaurants that offer breakfast only abound. (They often offer lunch as well, but it’s clearly an afterthought, paling compared to the joys of brunch.)

The breakfast-only phenomena is especially notable in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys. But I think they’re at least equaled, if not eclipsed by the Long Beach area — by hot spots like The Breakfast Bar, The Local Spot, The Blackbird Café, Starling Diner and The Pan (which also serves dinner, but it’s breakfast that’s the signature).

And then, just a tad to the north, Artesia offers some of the best breakfasts around. This isn’t just Little India — it’s the Big Muffin, thanks to great destinations like the No Toro Café and the Off Street Café.

The name No Toro Café (11818 Artesia Blvd., Artesia, 714-499-7969, www.instagram.com/notorocafe) is actually a polite version of “No Bull Café,” which the restaurant says is the driving concept behind this “military owned and operated” mini-mall breakfast and lunch shop. It’s stripped down like, to use a military analogy, K-Rations used to be, and MREs became — just the essential dishes. But in this case done very well. It skews heavily to breakfast, with a lot of egg dishes, and some properly outlandish griddle items.

There’s a pile of Belgian-style waffles, heavy with whipped cream, that gets oohs and aahs as they emerge from the kitchen — people stopping to gape and ogle, as well they should. The raspberry pancakes are, simply speaking, things of beauty — soft and sweet with layers of flavor that you keep digging into. This is food that’s hard to resist, no matter how committed you are to your low-carb diet.

Getting even more orchidaceous, there are banana pecan-cinnamon pancakes. And getting back to basics, there’s plain buttermilk pancakes, which are also served on the side, as an alternative to toast or English muffins

The choice of toast, English muffins or pancakes come with dishes from the Sniper Scramble Bar (four eggs, American cheese, house potatoes) and a choice of three toppings, drawn from spinach, avocado, salsa, red peppers, onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, bacon and spicy chorizo. You can also choose turkey bacon, grilled chicken or grilled steak.

Then, there’s the No Toro Breakfast Burger, in which a burger and a breakfast collide on that brioche bun — a patty and cheddar from one side of the fence, bacon and a fried egg from the other, served with skinny fries. I guess you could ask for pancakes as well, if you ask real nice. Making it a kind of amazing combination.

A mile to so down Artesia Boulevard, we come upon the Off Street Cafe (11020 Artesia Blvd., Artesia 562-402-9665, www.offstreetcafe.com), which isn’t so much off the street as it is in a corporate complex, where it’s clearly large enough to feed one and all. (One of the streets bordering the restaurant is Business Circle.)

Indeed, the first thing you notice about the Off Street is the size of the outdoor patio, which surrounds the place to a degree where the restaurant is barely visible within. And if you do venture within, there’s much more restaurant to be found — this “American Diner” is a big joint.

There’s a big menu to match. I counted 21 egg dishes, seven “Hearty Specialties,” seven “Off Street Lites” and nine “Pancakes, French Toast & Waffles.” The depth of the menu allows you to meander from the Zen simplicity of two eggs any style, to the far more diet-challenging fried chicken on a homemade waffle with bourbon maple syrup, a California-style chorizo burrito, an egg white and ground turkey “healthy” scramble (with brown rice as a side!), and a Breakfast BLT made with a fried egg.

On the side dishes, you’ll notice low-fat cottage cheese right next to two house-made biscuits and gravy — the alpha and omega of dietary options. I lean toward the biscuits for me, cottage cheese is the dairy version of kale.

60 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Stuck in a breakfast rut? Find over 60 healthy breakfast ideas below! With sweet, savory, easy & make-ahead options, we have something for everyone.

And just like that, it’s back-to-school time! I’m lining up the fall recipe calendar, getting ready to test, shoot, and share a slew of new ideas. For us, this season will be busy, and I know that it will be for many of you too. Today, I’m sharing my favorite healthy breakfast ideas to get these jam-packed days off to a great start. You’ll find ones that are perfect for making ahead and taking on the go, ones that are quick & easy to whip up in the morning, and even a few for days when you have a bit more time to linger over breakfast.

Below, I share over 60 healthy breakfast recipes, divided into 11 (yes, 11!) categories: oats, eggs, smoothies, bowls, quick breads, pancakes & waffles, breakfast tacos, breakfast cookies, toast, muffins & scones, and bars & balls. Whether you’re someone who craves something savory or sweet first thing in the morning, or whether you like to enjoy breakfast at home or grab it & go, you’re sure to find some healthy breakfast ideas you love.

Healthy Breakfast Oats

Oats are loaded with fiber, so they’re a great healthy breakfast! If you’re like me, though, you might run the risk of getting stuck in an oat rut. In college, I ate plain instant oatmeal every day. After four years, I couldn’t stand the stuff. To avoid oat burnout, make sure to vary your toppings! Any nut butter, fruit, dried fruit, yogurt, nut, seed, or jam is fair game. Change up how you prepare your oats too. Make baked oatmeal or homemade granola, or prep a big batch of overnight oats for quick breakfasts throughout the week. While you’re at it, make a batch of homemade oat milk.

Egg Breakfast Recipes

If you’re someone who wants to prioritize protein in your breakfast, egg recipes are a great choice. Breakfast scrambles, omelets, and plain fried eggs can get repetitive, so try one of the recipes below to change things up. Make individual frittatas in muffins tins for a portable breakfast option. On days when you have more time, sit down to a big breakfast casserole or shakshuka with your partner or family.

Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

Smoothies are some of the best breakfast recipes, as they pack a big serving of fruits and veggies into your first meal of the day. Through years of making smoothies, I’ve found that a handful of spinach is almost undetectable, so toss some in to boost the nutrients in a fruit smoothie! Alternatively, blend in a superfood like hemp seeds, nut butter, matcha, or maca powder for an extra healthy kick.

Make your smoothie the night before and store it in the fridge for a grab & go breakfast, or prep individual smoothie packs. Portion out the fruit, veggie, and superfood ingredients for a single smoothie into a container, prepping for as many days as you like at once. Store containers in the freezer, and in the morning, blend a frozen pack with almond milk or juice. Enjoy!

Healthy Breakfast Bowls

If you’re looking for some new, out-of-the-box breakfast ideas, a breakfast bowl might be the thing for you. In this category, almost anything goes. When I’m making a savory bowl, I top rice, farro, or cauliflower rice with a soft-boiled egg, vegetables (leftover roasted Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, cauliflower, etc) and a flavorful sauce like pesto or tzatziki. My sweet bowls vary widely. Sometimes I’m in the mood for chia pudding or a smoothie bowl. On other days, I’ll top quinoa with almond milk, cinnamon, and fresh fruit and call it a meal.

Quick Bread Breakfast Recipes

Moist, comforting, and lightly sweet, quick bread is a delectable breakfast option. In the summer, I almost always have individual slices of zucchini bread in my freezer. In the fall and winter, pumpkin and banana bread take its place. Enjoy a thick slice of your favorite quick bread on its own, or top it with a dollop of Greek yogurt and seasonal fruit for extra staying power.

Pancake & Waffle Breakfast Ideas

Pancakes and waffles may not be something you can whip up every morning of the week, but unlike their cousin French toast, these breakfast recipes keep well if you make them ahead and freeze them. So double your weekend batch of pancakes or waffles, and freeze the leftovers for busy mornings! When you’re ready to eat, pop them in the toaster or microwave to thaw.

Healthy Breakfast Tacos

After years of living in Austin, breakfast tacos are my favorite healthy breakfast. Most often, I scramble eggs with spinach and top them with avocado or guacamole, tomatillo salsa or cilantro sauce, and pico de gallo, if I have it on hand. Otherwise, I add roasted veggies like sweet potatoes, shiitakes, or cherry tomatoes to my egg filling. I like to prep these ahead of time, so all I have to do in the morning is scramble up a couple of eggs and load everything into tortillas.

Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast cookies are the perfect on-the-go morning treat. Ingredients like flax, oats, nuts, seeds, and even quinoa fill them with protein, healthy fats, and fiber. In addition to the fruit and veggie variations listed below, I love the Banana Bread Breakfast Cookies on page 35 of Love and Lemons Every Day. These breakfast recipes are great ones to make ahead of time and freeze for busy mornings. To thaw, pop them in the microwave for 8-10 seconds, and head out the door!

Toast Breakfast Ideas

If you’re looking for tried & true easy breakfast ideas, toast is the thing for you! Pop a slice of whole grain bread in the toaster, and load it up with your favorite seasonal toppings. I like to start with a creamy spread and then add a layer of roasted or raw veggies, fruit, and/or fresh herbs. I’m a diehard fan of avocado toast, but hummus, ricotta, and nut butter are good starting points for making delicious toast too.

Healthy Breakfast Muffins and Scones

When I was growing up, chocolate chip muffins were a breakfast staple in our house. Muffins are still one of my favorite ways to start the day, but now, I make my morning muffins a bit healthier, using whole grain flour, fruit mix-ins, and natural sweeteners like maple syrup whenever possible. Like other healthy breakfast baked goods, muffins and scones freeze well. I like to keep a frozen stash on hand at all times!

Bars & Balls Breakfast Ideas

If you’re someone who loves to start your day with a granola bar, try swapping out the packaged kind for ones you make at home. All of these recipes are simple, made with good-for-you ingredients that combine to make delicious, nutritious morning treats. Like baked goods, these bars & balls keep well in the freezer, so prep a batch to have on hand for easy healthy breakfasts and snacks!

Fox Run Cafe Reopens with New Breakfast and Lunch Menu

Opening a restaurant is hard — any restaurateur will tell you that. Opening a restaurant during a pandemic adds another layer of uncertainty, frustration and changing regulations that make the endeavor even more difficult. But, if a restaurant can get through a pandemic, it can likely take any future challenges in stride. Since it first opened in March 2020, Fox Run Cafe has experienced more challenges than normal in its first year. After closing for a month to refocus, they are now open with a new breakfast and lunch menu that brings lighter, fresh fare to the Congress Park neighborhood.

When Lucien Reichert formed the concept of Fox Run Cafe, he wanted the focus to be on hospitality and making guests feel welcome. The name of the restaurant comes from his family’s vacation home in Steamboat Springs — located on a street named Fox Run — that always welcomed friends and family with open arms and an open kitchen. “We’d always have our friends up for weekends and holidays and it was always so welcoming. My mom would be cooking food for everyone and made everyone feel so comfortable. I wanted to evoke that same feeling with the restaurant,” said Reichert.

Upon walking into the quaint restaurant, you’ll be greeted by an employee who will let you know that you can place your order at the counter and sit at any open table. “There’s nothing worse than going into a restaurant and feeling stupid or unwelcome,” said Reichert. The space is small but boasts a large garage door that can be opened on nice days that makes the space feel more open. Reichert is a Denver native and fell in love with the Congress Park neighborhood several years ago.

“It feels less developed and more authentic over here compared to some of the neighborhoods with big development projects going on,” he said. He hopes that Fox Run will become a neighborhood staple and that regulars from some of the neighboring hotspots like Machete, Cerebral Brewing and Lula Rose will begin to come to Fox Run on a regular basis. “It’s hard to build up your customer base during a pandemic. Most people have been focused on going to their favorite restaurants to try to help them stay in business, not go to brand new ones,” he explained.

The menu at Fox Run is refreshing and simple. Reichert experimented with baking sourdough throughout the closures and serves it as toast with toppings like whipped feta, honey and pistachios ($8), scrambled eggs, cream fraiche and chives ($7) and avocado with grapefruit chermoula ($9). You can also enjoy the sourdough on the corned beef reuben ($15) consisting of braised cabbage, provolone and thousand island dressing. The breakfast burrito ($12) is a home run made with scrambled eggs, cheddar, vegetarian green chili, fried potatoes and your choice of bacon or sausage all wrapped in a flour tortilla then grilled to crispy perfection. The fried chicken sandwich ($13) was an unexpected menu item that customers loved so much during the dine-in closure that Reichert decided to keep it on the menu. “The plan from the beginning was to adapt to what the customers wanted, so that’s what we’re doing,” he said.

Eventually, Fox Run hopes to stay open for happy hour but for now you can enjoy brunch cocktails like cold brew whiskey ($10), spiked house lemonade ($9), a bloody ($9) and a paloma ($9). Fox Run also has a unique take on a bloody called “bloody mary has no clothes” ($9) that is a strained version of the bloody with a lighter mouthfeel and less pulp than the traditional bloody.

Next time you find yourself in the Congress Park area, Fox Run is worth a stop, even if it’s just for a piece of hot and crispy griddled banana bread and a coffee. Once you go, though, you may want to stay awhile longer and enjoy the hospitality.
