The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Antiquing in Philadelphia


5. An Oddball Day

The café outpost of Le Colombe Torrefaction.   

Wander through Philly's French Quarter, the underappreciated area surrounding Sansom and 17th Streets. The chic Sofitel hotel also sells Gallic finds like Lalique bubble rings and CDs straight from the Buddah Bar in Paris. Stop by La Creperie Café (1722 Sansom St.; 215-564-6460) for tomato-and-feta crêpes. And for a perfect café au lait, linger at La Colombe Torrefaction, supplier to all of Jean-Georges's and Alain Ducasse's U.S. restaurants.
