TALULA'S GARDEN

Over the weekend, I finally got my fanny back down to Philly for a lovely brunch with friends I hadn't seen all summer. When they said we were going to Talula's Garden I knew I had to break my weekend exile for this. I had read in Bon Appetite magazine it had been rated #6 in the country for new places to dine.
Tucked between two commercial buildings, Talula's Garden is an oasis of greenery with a latticework of potted plants climbing the patio walls. The greenhouse-inspired interior is brimming with flowers, nature-themed cylindrical lamps, and pressed leaf artwork in light wooden frames. Decor aside, Talula’s main event is weekend brunch. Talula’s Garden is one of those restaurants that you might miss if you were just passing by,  because of how it's located, and the gate at the front is covered with plants that kind of block the view of the dining area from the outside, which is why this place is sort of a secret.
 I really love how their menus are clipped together by clothes-lines clips.  The first one in yellow is their cheese menu which I read so much about. And how cool are the seed packets for diners... to promote green and gardening...
We chose to sit outside in the main “garden” because I wanted this experience to be different.  I could describe walking into the space as magical.  It’s like leaving the hustle and bustle of the city and stepping into an oasis where you expect to see fairies flying around. Of course I was the only fairy flying around. With me present you know we had to start with cheese, being the sixth food group....and then followed up with our tempting mouth-watering brunch.
Talula’s Little Donuts buttery balls and Coffee with Chantilly Cream ended a perfect brunch.
After this, I did lick the plate clean I believe, and people will wonder why I look like a stuffed pig at a pig roast.

  5. Did you lick the buttery balls before eating them, Mistress? It's not great table manners but it might have been hard to resist. 😉😊

  13. What a simply lovely place. When I was still living in the states, I always though Philadelphia was one city that had such a number of great restaurants. I always,looked forward to going there. This place is so neat.

  14. Great place!!! Nothing like outdoor places that can seem far awhile, even though it's in the city.

    And you far from a stuffed pig.....
