8 Philly BYOB Brunch Spots To Bring Your Friends And Save Money

Brunch is magical. Plain and simple. It has our back when we had a late night and slept in a little. It has our back when we just want to have a few mimosas with friends without getting dirty looks for drinking before 5pm. It is always there for us when we need it.

It isn't a secret that Philly crushes it when it comes to brunch... or food in general. If you are in Philly, brunch treats you exceptionally well. There are plenty of places to go, but if you are looking to save a few bucks, you might want to hit a BYOB brunch.

Here are the 8 Philly BYOB brunch spots trending on NativX right now!

Pro Tips: CASH ONLY and get there early (7-9am) for specials

Great For: Beer Flights, BYO CHAMPAGNE, Massive Portions

Pro Tips: Massive Portions and dog-friendly patio

Native Scoop: This is a well-known brunch place, but it's good to make everyone aware that they're BYOB. Locals let us know that this is the place to be if you are into giant food portions. Make sure to get there early because it tends to get packed.

3) Day By Day

501 N 13th St. Philadelphia, PA 19123

We're open... see you soon, Philly! Thanks for the great photo, @lhimsical. #philly #phillyfood #phillybrunch

Great For: Potato Lovers, BENEDICTs, Mid Size Groups

Pro Tips: No Reservations, Show Up Early

Native Scoop: The hot dish at Day By Day is definitely the Potato Pancakes Benedict. On a busy day, you can swing in, put your name down, and they will text you when you are up so you can walk around the area a little. A fair warning, they aren't the best place for huge groups like 10 people. 

4) Miles Table

1620 South St, Philadelphia, PA 19146

Great For: A Quick Lunch, Casual Mimosas Or Bloodys

Pro Tips: Vegetarian Friendly

Native Scoop: Natives are big into the Huevos Rancheros and the Sausage and Egg Brioche. It has a relaxing environment and is really vegetarian friendly. They have rotating specials so the menu never gets boring! It's a great place to go if you catch yourself on South Street. 

5) Girard

300 E Girard Ave Philadelphia, PA 19125

Great For: Coffee Addicts, Coffee with a Twist

Pro Tips: Get The Coffee Flight and The Adult Pop Tart

Native Scoop: Philly Natives talk about the quality brunch and incredible coffee. It's not often that you can get the best of both worlds. The tip is already included in the meal because of their fair wage philosophy. Great spot for if you are hanging around Fishtown. 

6) Wedge & Fig CLOSED

160 N 3rd St Philadelphia, PA 19106

Great For: Stress Free Brunch, Brunch Dates

Pro Tips: If it's nice out, grab a spot in the outside garden

Native Scoop: This is a cozy place to take advantage of the BYOB atmosphere. They specialize in cheese so make sure to grab something that is cheesy! We've been told their french toast is killer though.

7) Cafe Lift
