If you’re familiar with the Trolley Car Diner on Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, then you will recognize the first part of this restaurant Trolley Car Cafe in East Falls. The kids and I went there shortly after our Indpendence Hall tour. We were just in time because the winter hours on Sunday are from 9 to 3.
The menu offered a variety of selections, the kids menu was very inexpensive with selections as low as $5 with a choice of fruit cup, veggie sticks or chips plus a drink. My little one decided on the cheese pizza , fruit cup and lemonade. My 11yo decided on the Kobe sliders with no lettuce and tomatoe just a slice of pickle with lemonade. The nice part of the menu, breakfast is served all day. I ordered the challah French toast with turkey bacon. It was served with powdered sugar a slice of grapefruit. I was a little disappointed there was no cinnamon or raisins. When our waitress asked how was everything I did mention the cinnamon and raisins would have made it better. It was too late but she mentioned that cinnamon and brown sugar was available because it’s served with oatmeal. Next time I know to ask for those staples.
The location has seating inside and outside. However, Sunday was a bit chilly so outside was not an option for us. The inside is a little small so I wouldn’t suggest for a larger group. It was a little tight for the three of us to eat comfortably. Also there was only one restroom which was extremely extremely tight especially with a small child.
The restaurant offers takeout or eat-in. I would like to try some other selections on the menu but may opt to dine alone or do takeout.
