The inspiration behind the account
Brunch does have a magical way of bringing people together and having a hell of a time. It can be savior from going a little too hard the night before. It can be the best way to reminisce or catch up with old (and new) friends.
Caitlin knows the power of brunch and has gone out of her way to help you find the best spots for brunch in Philly. She hopes she can inspire others to get out there and experience, just like she does, every weekend!
Why the philly food scene?
Competition breeds excellence. Restaurants are constantly competing with each other, creatively thinking up new dishes in an attempt to impress you. The massive brunch scene has caught the attention of the top restaurant owners in Philly, prompting them to start offering brunch. Even Caitlin, a seasoned brunch expert, finds new restaurants offering brunch, getting her excited for the weekend.
The champagne to OJ ratio is key
There's a lot of factors
Caitlin understands that everyone experiences differently. Even within brunch, there are tons of different types of brunchers. There are the ones that focus on a lively environment, some that focus on the food, and others that are looking for a date spot. She genuinely wants to help, and understands that she can't give blanket recommendations to everyone. She goes above and beyond, wanting to know more about the experience you are looking for, so she can give a quality suggestion that you're likely to enjoy.
