With two locations—one in Manayunk and one on South Street—there will surely be an excellent spot for an afternoon lunch with friends. They have taken empty lots in the city and transformed them into beautiful spaces to enjoy, with food, drinks, and space to play. Your visit helps support the PHS priorities of creating healthy living environments. I love using this space for birthday parties, showers on a nice day, or lunch with friends. I love the open space for the kids to play.
