We always try to brunch at Gold Standard when we're in Philly. Nice bright dining room and outside seating when the weather is warm. Large portions of very tasty food. French toast is always a winner. Friendly wait staff.

The food was great!. We were a party of four for a Saturday dinner. The crab cake nachos were a hit with everyone, and my steak tacos were super. The service was also great. Definitely going back!
