This past week, Isaac said “grab your passport and my hand” and we swiftly took off on an adventure. On May 14th we landed at the Lokal Hotel in Philadelphia (no passport actually required), and from there we got on the subway and went to Lincoln Financial Field for none other than the Taylor Swift Era’s Tour concert. As you can probably imagine, the show was spectacular, and completely worth not getting back to the hotel until 2am.
The next morning, the 15th, Isaac and I went to Front Street Cafe which was conveniently just down the block from the Lokal Hotel. At Front Street, I got the quinoa oat porridge (without the coconut de leche sauce) and a lovely cup of hot tea. Isaac went with the Front Street breakfast with bacon and breakfast potatoes. After our delicious breakfast we stopped by a super cool vintage & thrift store called Thunderbird Salvage. They had a great collection of vintage clothes and home goods, and a ton of random older stuff.
There is no such thing as too many thrift stores, so from there we went to The Second Mile Center Thrift Store. There weren’t too many vintage items, but they still had some great second-hand clothing options. After that we stopped at Arrowroot Farmacy + Café in Bryn Mawr. There, I tried the red raspberry muffin and an iced passion fruit tea latte (can you tell that I’m a tea girl?). Isaac had the chocolate chip cookie and the mudwater latte.
Our final stop in Philly before heading home was at one of our favorites, Terrain Cafe in Devon. We looked at some plants and enjoyed the outdoor furniture for a bit, then we headed home! In the end it was quite an eventful, yummy and fun weekend! We loved supporting one of our favorite artists, and stopping by some wonderful local small businesses in the city of brotherly love. Next time you’re in Philly, roll the windows down, blast some T-Swift, and try out some of the places we went! Don’t forget to let us know what you think!
