In the first place the food. Watery thin chile soup that had no flavor other than heat. Followed by Eggplant Cannelloni that again presented well, but actually had almost no flavor.

Maybe I just didn't order the right thing. While it was very good, I was expecting exceptional. It was a little dry, and I needed more sauce. Then it was great.

I had a lovely lunch at Farmicia. I sat in the open window seat with a view of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is a colorful one with much to look at, up and coming, lots of stores, cafes, restaurants and just a slice of city life. The hamburger I had was delicious and the fries, skinny and crispy, were perfect.... More

The brunch here was amazing. Out of our group, one got a beef & chorizo burger, one got chicken enchiladas and I got the huevos rancheros. No one shared! Delicious food and great service

Really nice place with excellent food & service. We went for Saturday brunch & were lucky enough to get a sidewalk table. Food was outstanding. Service was also top notch. Really an enjoyable meal while people watching. Going back for dinner in the not to distant future. Very much looking forward to it!

My son and his girlfriend selected this spot for us to meet up with out-of-town friends. Our cocktails were delicious and waiter,Tim, very friendly. Tim was also helpful in explaining the food selections. Our group shared Stuffed Squash Blossom Appetizers that were delicious. The enchilada app were also very good. Our entrees were well prepared and flavorful without being overbearing.... More

The decor of the restaurant and outdoor seating was my favorite part of the experience.That, and the waitress brought out a nice water bowl for our dog. We visited for brunch. I ordered the grilled hummus and avocado pita - however, it wasn't grilled which was disappointing (just plain, cold pita bread- and it was small. What was on my... More

The menu has plenty to choose from - I had Vietnamese style grilled squid for an app, and duck for main course. Both were quite good. The restaurant is very spacey/open - perfect for a large outing. The location is great - a few blocks from Independence Hall. Service friendly.
