You find yourself in Philadelphia, America’s first capital, home of Ben Franklin and revolutionary history. You’re hungry and want to eat like a Philly native eats! What if you could walk into one space in center city with the aromas of fresh java, baked goods, burgers, deli sandwiches, Asian food, fresh bread, BBQ, soul food, Indian cuisine — and still have more to choose from?
Lafayette Bakery & Café serves up a fanciful array of French goodies in a casual street-café atmosphere. In sparkling and stuffed-to-overflowing display cases, delicious products — which have traveled about 15 feet from the busy kitchen readily visible from the counter — are proudly displayed. The beauty, textures, and flavors of both sweet and savory entrées evidence many years of old-world French experience, where this team ran a bakery and café. Reasonably-priced perfection for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.
