Yummy Breakfast

I stumbled on Di Bruno Bros, last Sunday, while looking for an interesting breakfast. What an amazing store! It has a warm old time feel to it and is up to date with wonderful food selections.

This place is Outrageously priced. It makes some of the upscale gourmet markets in Manhattan look cheap. Pretty crazy actually. Most things are pretty good though. I have had delicious Asian rice wrapper rolls, good vegetarian salads, arancini, meatballs, eggplants rolls, hoagies and some of the desserts from the case. Nothing disappointed. It is clean and efficient and you can... More

I have to say that as a Center City resident (and taxpayer) for over 30 years I deserve better than this overpriced place taking up valuable real estate... the prices are ridiculous and even offensive. It is nice to walk in and look (hence the two stars) but everytime I look at the prices, I gasp in shock and more... More

For convenience sake, we have had lunch at Di Brunos at the Comcast Center twice now. Never ever again. There are SO many better options available. The sandwiches always sound delicious and taste really disappointing. Very salty, falling apart messes, skimpy on the fillings- especially the meat- and insanely expensive. We spent more on 2 sandwiches and one slice of... More

This Italian market/cheese-monger/coffee bar/bakery was just around the corner from our hotel, and we had a lovely light breakfast of pastries and cappuccinos. The market itself was amazing with a cheese selection to rival a Parisian fromagerie, where they will happily let you taste their wares to pick the perfect cheese, which in our case was the Point Reyes Blue....

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. Just what I wanted.....I opted for the Turkey Cobb Salad. The salad that arrived didn't really bear any resemblance to what was on... More

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.
