Our daughter has raved about this establishment. You know most places hardly live up to expectations. Cafe La Maude was even better. I can't thank her enough for the recommendation and escorting us to this restaurant. I can only say everything was great and I tried everyone's dishes. The French toast with Nutella and fruit was the best dessert possible.... More

I eat breakfast here every Sunday. This gem serves up Middle Easter-Mediterranean-French-Mexican fusion menu. Every dish is fresh and made to order. I love the Mediterranean platter as well as N Liberties. The fish tacos are the best I've had anywhere. The owners, Gaby and Nathalie will welcome you and treat you like family. If you are in Philly visiting,... More

This place had amazing food. Service was quick and timely? And food was delicious! This place is a must see. We got the sweet potatoes and eggs bennie, and the Persian eggs with croissant with ham and goat cheese. Heaven on earth!! It also came with a small salad and potatoes!

We were introduced to Café la Maude a few years ago, and it is easily our favorite place to eat. Natalie runs a wonderful café - the food is amazing, the service is great, and the atmosphere puts Cheers to shame. The food is a French-Lebanese fusion, and goes from meatloaf, to the open-face Lebanese burrito, to wonderful waffles. The... More

The food was not only some of the best brunch food I've ever had, but the employees and owners made my friends and I feel as if we were family friends visiting their home. The owner made sure we got seated quickly despite the wait, and he and his wife even sat down and chatted with us after. The food... More

Fantastic breakfast - we had the sweet potato Benny. The flavors were eloquently orchestrated. Not only was the food enjoyable but the atmosphere. My husband and I sat outside to enjoy Philadelphia. Many of the local residents and owner were enjoying the morning and chatting with us about the wonderful neighborhood.

Cafe La Maude combines all the elements needed for a great brunch spot ( except that it is BYOB. So remember to bring the champagne, vodka etc.) The food, ambience and service stand out from the rest of the brunch crowd. My group ordered the Parisian Za, Saumon Fume a cheval, and the open faced burrito (TBH we had a... More
