Here’s another slightly embarrassing secret to go along with my enjoyment of Ben Franklin’s toilet – Tobey and I love the Center City Whole Foods.  With so many unique and independent restaurants in Philly, it seems silly to like a chain grocery store – but this one is pretty cool.  It has outposts of 3 of our favorite Philly restaurants (Dizengoff, Goldie’s, Federal Donuts), a juice bar, a great cheese section (with free samples), a full bar, a huge prepared food area, plenty of seating for an indoor picnic, gorgeous cupcakes and a hidden nook with great city views.

Tobey says: Probably my favorite place in Philadelphia.  I love walking around, getting free samples, and eating my favorite falafel salad from Goldie’s.
