We had the friendliest food runner guy ever. He deserves a raise. I had a tasty crab avocado toast and my husband enjoyed his udon shrimp dish. We bought a bunch of baked goods and so far they all were very good, specially the croissants.

Service was disappointing. We sat at the dining area and no one came to check on us until I went to the bar area to put in an order. Space is nice enough although I was expecting a more intimate atmosphere.

This is not your place if you're looking for eggs and hash browns. On the other hand, if you're motivated to try the wonderful oatmeal soufflé or one of the quiches, you're at the right place. I was disappointed in the pastry basket for $10. Warning--they choose the pastries not you. No croissant among the three pastries selected. Instead a slice of pumpkin loaf, that was very ordinary. Great coffee.

No need for a reservation - the cash and carry area is easy to grab a coffee or beverage and light bite or sweet. I made a reservation not knowing and felt as if I was bothering the servers in the reserved section. The reservation was made for a business meeting, and despite the server who made us feel like we were bothering her cause we only ordered drinks (it is a coffee bar), the meeting went well.

The building is impressive in and of itself, and the Vernick Coffee Bar space is open and relaxed. The food was good, although I wish my acai bowl had more acai (switching the proportions of the bowl around). I look forward to trying some of the pastries next time!

Went to lunch with friends and their young baby after walking around the city all morning. Called ahead to ask about stroller stowage and high chair options. The Hostess was incredibly considerate, professional and made it work for us. She was very clearly also being extremely considerate of preserving a certain level of experience for fellow diners while accommodating us. Thanks for a great, stressless meal in a place that is better for business than babies! Food was EXCELLENT and building is gorgeous. Tea and coffee bar look very inviting.

This was our first time at Vernick’s Coffee Bar, and we were all pleasantly surprised at the quality of both the food and the service. Plus, the new Comcast Center is amazing. We will definitely go back.

Celebrated the birthday of a coworker at lunch. Food was very good and service attentive and knowledgeable. It’s noisy but not overwhelming. Good vibe. Small, but diverse menu.

LOVE this place/this space. A little oasis of calm and serenity with a wonderfully simple but diverse and delicious menu. We both had the grain bowl with tons of wild mushrooms (yum) and avocado plus a stone fruit and green salad..had grilled peaches and cherries. Seasonal bliss. So good!

This is my daughter in law and my favorite spot to grab breakfast/lunch! We’re obsessed with the delectable grain bowl and iced matcha drinks. Oatmeal soufflé is a lovely option as well. Desserts are spectacular! We had a carrot cake pie that was incredible! The atmosphere at the tables is delightful looking out to the massive trees in the lobby. Greg is a culinary rock star and everything he does is of the highest level of quality and creativity.

I've been to the Vernick Coffee Bar many times for coffee and finally stayed for lunch. The spicy miso mushroom soup will blow your mind in terms of taste and presentation. Next, I had the cold shrimp and noodle salad, which was light, bright and satisfying. My colleague raved about by the Montreal style short rib. Treat yourself.

Lovely birthday lunch. The avocado and wild mushroom was delicious. Lovely taste and the different textures of ingredients were totally enjoyable and filling. The al I d apricot tart also delicious and a steal at $5. The Rose was perfect for celebrating, but not much in the glass for $11! But maybe that’s Center City these days?
