The changing seasons will eventually drive diners and café goers to cozy interior spaces, and the beginning of autumn is the perfect time to embrace the slowly changing weather at Philadelphia’s top waterfront restaurants. Want to know how to make Waterfront Gourmet Cafe & Deli and other restaurants located on Philadelphia’s iconic riverfront the ideal fall stops? Read our tips for enjoying stunning waterfront destinations this fall:
Come to Appreciate the Sunshine (or Rain)
September and October bring notoriously fickle weather to Philadelphia. Some days are filled with bright sunshine and surprisingly warm temperatures. These blissful days are ideal for eating along the water. The sun will sparkle on the constantly moving water and create the perfect view along the city’s waterfront. Therefore, when the sun peeks out during the early autumn months, there is no better destination than Waterfront Gourmet’s Christopher Columbus Boulevard Location. With winter looming in the near future, you need to find an eatery where the last drops of summer sun can be fully appreciated.
However, even on cloudy or rainy days there are reasons to pick waterfront restaurants as a destination. The rest of the city center grows gloomy and gray as the weather turns, but along the water the open space and comforting views help keep visitors upbeat. If you are lucky enough to come into Waterfront Gourmet on a rainy day, you will find that there is no better place to watch rain fall on the Delaware River.
Escape the Office for an Afternoon
The friendly and lively cafés and restaurants found along the Philadelphia riverfront are a welcome relief from the drudgery of a day in stuck in the office. All too often the beautiful weather of fall in Philadelphia is only appreciated after it’s over. Instead, many of us spend the gorgeous autumn days behind desks or trapped in meetings. It’s time to make a change!
Fall is the season to take a long lunch, spend an afternoon over a cup of coffee instead of your legal brief, or grab a quick bite with a friend. The colder temperatures of winter will be in Philadelphia soon enough, when the prospects of heading out of the office feels much less like a treat and somewhat like a chore.
Keep it Cozy Along the Water
While we fret and worry over the impending cold of winter, there is something refreshing about the brisk temperatures of autumn. The idea of a cozy meal begins to feel important and essential, as is the need to unpack sweaters and wear all of your fall colors. The waterfront restaurants in Philadelphia are fantastic places to get comfortable on a weekday or weekend morning.
Directly along the river you can find the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee or other warm beverage. Whether you are popping in before work or relaxing on a Saturday morning, something hot is the perfect match for the chilly air that is becoming more prevalent with each passing day.
Additionally, the Waterfront Gourmet offers a rotating menu that features some fantastic choices for fall. Whether you are looking for comfort food or a lighter option, we incorporate the flavors of autumn into delicious wraps, salads, and sandwiches. These changes to our ingredients and menu offerings are also reflected on our catering menu, which is the perfect option if you can’t get away from the office.
