Sitting outside, sipping a cold lemonade and just absorbing a beautiful afternoon, Café Lutécia can seem like the greatest experience in the world.
Tucked away near Fitler Square, Café Lutécia is a lunch gem only a short walk from Rittenhouse Square's more expensive alternatives. Modeled after a Parisian sidewalk café, it oozes simple charm. While small, their sandwiches always are made with fresh and tasty ingredients, and make a perfect complement to fresh-squeezed lemonade. Top off the meal with an espresso, and you have the makings of a wonderful afternoon.
NOTE- They're closed on Mondays.
Pros: food, ambiance, sidewalk seating
