We haven't really posted anything about Hawthorne's yet because, I selfishly don't want tons of people to know about (who don't already know about it) and I would lose another brunch place. I'm a jerk about food, I don't have lots of time, I just want to have delicious brunch in a sunny place with nice people. So here it is another place for brunch, and you can have a beer before noon.
The house smoked bacon was crunchy and cooked perfectly, the pancake gives me food cravings at the thought of it ( hmm moist crunchy fluffy) and the coffee is good.
Mason jars for water ,vintage mugs for coffee, and a short but sweet menu shows that all the attention is going to the right places.
I've read reviews about the spotty service, but in the 3 times I've been there, it's been pretty nice. Not overly accommadating, and maybe not consistant but hey it's Philadelphia. The owners are absolutely lovely and maybe you have to ask for the creamer instead of the sketchy non-refrigerated packet creamers, but you do get it.

The creamed chipped beef on toast is pretty awesome. Also they have that Coriander Grut Bier. Hell yeah.
