You must visit the Reading terminal market if you are in Philadelphia. There's a wide array of foods, convenient seating (not fancy), convenient location-it must be seen. There are numerous eateries but also food vendors – butchers, fish markets, green grocers and specialties.

The famous Philly Cheese Steak - one of the best places to try it might be the Reading terminal. Would definitely recommend the place where Obama had his (can't remember the name, they have a photo of him next to the cashier)

We took an Uber and enjoyed breakfast at The Dutch Restaurant . We had to wait 1/2 hour to be seated, but well worth it. There are so many little shops to stop by. I recommend highly.
