Took my family for Mother’s Day breakfast and both the food and service were phenomenal! The potato mess and french toast were sooo good! Also recommend the blood orange mimosas! We can’t wait to come back again. The staff was super friendly!!

Always an awesome experience! On our last visit Sammy was our server. She is a doll. So fun while being professional. A person in our party wanted to sit in the shade and Sammy made that happen. We lost her as a server but we showed her our appreciation. Our next server was Justin. He has been our server almost every time we eat at Hawthornes. Justin, is of course, my all time favorite! Every server, every host at the window, every employee at Hawthornes has been fabulous. Nothing bad to say about service. They all hustle their behinds off!

Every dish is a tastebud experience! Never disappointed in the food. It’s comfort food at reasonable prices. Their is something on the menu for everyone The only thing I’ve been disappointed in is the Bloody Mary’s! They are not cold enough. The garnish of a pickle, olive and something else is not appealing. They are not thick enough. Kinda watered down. I like a good Bloody Mary when I go out for breakfast or early lunch. This is just my opinion on the Bloody Mary’s. I hear their beer selection is great! I always leave with an iced Vietnamese coffee! Yum!

Hawthornes is a must go to! It’s a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Your tastebuds won’t be disappointed!

We look forward to going back soon! Hi Justin!

Had brunch here with a group of 6 - excellent service (waitress Sam was awesome), quick service but not rushed, delicious drinks and food was awesome! Definitely make a reservation and grab brunch, or any meal here.

I had the fried chicken and biscuit. The chicken was good and the biscuit was excellent. I sat outside. Make sure you check the metal chairs for sharp edges. I ruined my new jeans.

I usually love coming here, but the food was completely off when I came this time around. I don’t think I’ll be back again. The waitress wasn’t that great at her job either. We were left for like 30 minutes at a time without seeing her multiple times

I really like Hawthornes, the food is surprisingly good! And the portions are good sizes too. The fish tacos were really delicious, and satisfying. We also shared the fried pickles, which I would definitely recommend.

Overall the experience was ok, made better by waitress, as event for Easter brunch with bunny. We were not informed until after the bunny left for the day that he would not be returning to interact or take pictures as he finished at 3:00pm and our reservation was at 2:45pm. The bunny did quickly stop over and present a small pkg but did not stay long enough for a picture or much interaction outside of hi and here is your gift. This was VERY disappointing for my little one as she was SOOOOO excited to see the Easter bunny and take a picture with him. If we were told of his short appearance perhaps we could have made an earlier 'RSVP or perhaps the restaurant could have informed us of his schedule and/or posted pix times. My entire reason for booking was for the Easter bunny experience which was brief at best. The waitress who felt sorry for my little one offered that we could come back on Sunday and she would ensure that we got to see and take a pix with the Easter bunny. Sadly our Sunday schedule could not accommodate another trip to downtown Philly for this coveted pix, so my little one missed out out on a 2021 Easter bunny pix.

The outdoor igloos are a great touch! I hope it’s a permanent fixture. The igloos minimize outside elements and create an intimate space for the dinner party. The food was delicious and it was perfectly accompanied by good service from our waitress Sam. Sam was open to making special requests and took the time to answer any questions we had. The brunch menu includes twists on traditional meals thats delightful, for example the Buffalo Salmon with Arugula & Potato Salad (no mayo which I was happy about). The alcoholic beverages taste good and were really refreshing!

This is typically one of my favorite local spots for the great beer selection and usually good food.

Unfortunately, the service was surprisingly disappointing; we sat for 15 minutes before someone took our order and our app was brought after our dinner. The fried chicken sandwich was overly greasy and had a very fatty piece of chicken that was barely edible.

However, what made it worse is they wrongfully changed the tip I saw on my credit card statement, conflicting with my identical customer copy and finance tracker. When asked to investigate, they denied they made any change which was a bit unsettling.

Will reconsider going back and if I do, will be sure to avoid the fried chicken and leave a tip that is not easy to change.

Food is great. My server is very busy so she forgot my coffee order after we ordered dessert. She cancelled the charge and offered to still serve the coffee afterwards but I just said no. Overall, it was still good experience.
