Green Eggs Cafe is a breakfast and brunch spot.

Green Eggs Cafe, which boasts five other locations across Philadelphia, provides sweet and savory breakfast and lunch dishes. On the menu, look for chicken and waffles Benedict, cookie dough-stuffed French toast or avocado toast. 

Yelp users are excited about Green Eggs Cafe, which currently holds 4.5 stars out of 18 reviews on the site.

Yelper Mister S., who reviewed Green Eggs Cafe on February 17, wrote, "I ordered a hot chocolate with whipped cream and the chicken and waffles paired with scrambled eggs and grits. It came with a honey mustard with a little hot sauce in it, which only made the meal that much more enjoyable." 

Stephanie S. noted, "Same exact menu as every other location. My favorite is the creme brûlée French toast. I also enjoy the savory egg dishes, shrimp and grits, lox egg Benedict and the short rib Benedict."

WaWa is a spot to score coffee and tea and sandwiches.

This new business, which offers more than 850 stores across the country, serves up build-your-own meals, pre-packaged food, beverages and more, with menu items ranging from hoagies to breakfast bowls to specialty coffee. 

WaWa's current Yelp rating of 3.5 stars out of three reviews indicates the newcomer is finding its way, but it's still early days.

Yelper Harold P., who reviewed WaWa on January 17, wrote, "While it may be the smallest location I've ever seen, it's pretty modern. What really stood out to me was the intercom system. Great location so far."

Stephanie Y. noted, "Like all other Wawa locations, this one has a few screens for you to order your food, refrigerators filled with beverages, pre-packaged sandwiches, wraps, salads and the coffee station. What's different about this store is that there's a pick-up window. On another note, it will be busy, mainly during business hours Monday through Friday because of its centralized location." 

WaWa is open 24 hours a day.

Yelper Kayla J., who reviewed Floating World Tattoo & Body Piercing on November 13, wrote, "The shop was clean, and the artists and shop assistant were nice. Additionally, they have so many flash options, if you come in with only a hankering for some ink."

Holly R. noted, "As usual, the artist did excellent work, offered solid input and I left happy with his work. It healed up perfectly and I've gotten a ton of comments on the piece, especially the color palette. The atmosphere in the shop was clean, friendly and very laid-back.
