Farmacia has great food and excellent service in a very nice setting. The menu offers a wide variety of entrees that are very unique and flavorful. We went for a late lunch and they were still serving breakfast items as well as a variety of appetizers and sandwiches. Excellent coffee as well. I will definitely be back!

Very comfortable and well decorated space. Tables weren't too close and we were allowed to linger on a Friday night. We are vegan so I didn't study the menu. We relied on our server and ordered a vegan version of the tamales, which were a little spicy, but stopped short of being too hot.

On a recent visit to this restaurant with family, I ordered rabbit "medium rare." While it showed evidence of having been under the grill, all but the top was simply raw. As I enjoy steak tartare, I decided to eat it anyway to see if the taste grew on me. It did not. (Fortunately, however, no pathogens grew inside me.) Others in my party enjoyed their meals. I should have sent mine back.

We had brunch here after the Philadelphia Marathon. Our reservations were at 10:45 am; we were a little late because of the traffic, but the staff was very accommodating. We enjoyed the happy hour (mimosa & bloody mary) and our children enjoyed the hot chocolate and orange juice. The place became louder and more crowded soon after we got there (all tables filled) - which was great as I think our kids became the quietest ones! We started with the cheese plate which was delicious & brought out quickly. We didn't see other kids, but they had a kids menu & were able to adjust their brunch menu for kid-sized pancakes. (Our children ate every bite). My husband had a delicious crab omelette and I had the chicken enchiladas. My only criticism would be that the enchiladas contained dark meat - but I never asked to clarify. (If you like dark meat, it was otherwise delicious!). Staff was extremely friendly. Recommend this place!
