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 2 of our favorite Philly restaurants (Goldie’s, Federal Donuts), a coffee bar (with La Colombe draft lattes), 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 a nice view over the Rodin Museum’s garden (up the stairs behind the bar).
Tobey says: Probably my favorite place in Philadelphia. I love walking around, getting free samples, and eating my favorite falafel salad from Goldie’s.
