Locavore Brunch: La Copine

photo by Dan Van Wert

In place of our regular feature on a local lunch spot, we’re bringing you the dish on one of the best new spots in town for brunch.

This weekend, when you start craving brunch, don’t roll over to one of your standbys. Instead, trot yourself up to 209 Poplar Street and sidle up to La Copine. It’s Philly’s only brunch cart and it’s the most happening way to get your Saturday morning (or afternoon) dose of eggs, sausage, and perfectly cooked hash browns.

Located in the space that’s known as Garden Variety, you’ll find La Copine dishing up all manner of sweet ‘n savory edibles on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The menu is small but mighty and includes Chef Nikki Hill’s take on the classic egg and cheese breakfast sandwich, a griddled PB & J made on banana bread, and a quinoa salad with rainbow chard and cherries.

Chef Hill and business partner Claire Wadsworth are committed to using the best ingredients possible and so source their cage free eggs and pork (for the small-batch sausage) from Green Meadow Farm in Gap, PA. Whenever it’s reasonable, their produce and baked goods are also sourced from local growers and bakers.

For the ravenous eater in your party, we recommend asking for the special. It includes the breakfast sandwich, choice of hash browns or quinoa salad and an iced drink. Eaten on a sunny morning while sitting in the garden, there’s really nothing better. Flip through the slideshow for more images of the space and the food.
