Café Upstairs disappointing

I decided to pop upstairs to the café today for some lunch rather than buy loose items downstairs. That was a mistake. At the entrance to the café I was greeted with a display of various salads.

Where else in midtown are you going to get your cheese from? Upstairs is a great spot to get a quick bite to eat.

As I was here on business I only was able to sample their take away breakfast which was lovely... great coffee and tasty bagels / muffins. The place looks amazing with so much food to choose from, I wish I lived here so I could have taken some items from the deli home to cook. The staff are amazingly friendly... More

Great market. Fresh meats, fish, cheese, pasta, bakery, cafe. If you can't find what you want here you are too picky. We took a cooler so we could buy items to take home with us. Great service knowledgeable staff. Don't go in here hungry you will leave with 10 bags of stuff.

Great market in the Rittenhouse area to buy some authentic Italian goods. The workers at the registers have a great attitude and are very helpful. I specifically like their drink selection... there aren't a lot of places around where you can get a good chinotto.

Di Brunos is the best place in Philadelphia to shop for groceries. Cheese selection is amazing, smoked salmon is cut by order, great variety of meats. They also have ready to eat stuff, such as salads and meat balls.

Ok, this is a pretty easy (Black and White) review for me. No question, Di Bruno Bros has the best cheese selection in Philly! The mothership location on 9th street location verse 17th street market is more authentic when tasting and browsing fromaggio and you get caught up looking for Rocky to run past the store! So, if you are... More

We stopped here for breakfast after a Sunday morning run and were immediately taken by the vintage-style decor, friendly staff, and delicious food. My husband had oatmeal and chai, while I opted for coffee and a bagel. The latter was well worth $10 as it came with a generous schmear of cream cheese and a huge serving of good quality... More

Always love stepping back in time and visiting DiBruno's. we went to the Location on 18 and Chestnut for lunch. Always an amazing selection of foods. Very difficult to choose something to eat. Everything looks (and is) delicious. Finally decided on a bacon jam panini and the hot Italian sausage Links with onions, peppers and green beans. Ate the Dishes... More
