    "Delicious! It's like walking back into a 60's stylish French apartment - the ambiance is just that rich."

    - Zagat

    "There are chopped salads, and at Cafe la Maude, the Lebanese-French jewel box tucked on Fourth Street in Northern Liberties, there's the house's De Maison chopped salad - another level of the game."

    "Lively chatter, in both English and Arabic, dings off the marble tables as chef Nathalie Richan and her staff serve every-which-way eggs, turkey kafta, homemade foul moudamas, and La Colombe coffee to the relaxing masses."

    -Bon Appétit

    "The GREEN SHAKSHUKA was AMAZING! Creamy, thick, and full of flavor. I'm surprised something with no meat at all could be this good!!!"

Cafe La Maude is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, so stop by for brunch any time during these hours. Try out the red velvet tiramisu pancakes, green shakshuka, gaufre chicken cordon bleu, or brisket huevos rancheros. Don’t forget the champagne or wine!"

    6abc - Top 6: Where to have brunch in Philadelphia

    The BYOB Cafe La Maude sits right off of 4th street in the heart of Northern Liberties. Husband and wife team Nathalie and Gabi sure know how to pack a menu, and they let me try some of the favorites. The Red Velvet Tiramisu Pancakes filled with mascarpone cheese were something you would eat in your dreams. The Shawarma Platter, and the Sweet Potato Benny were equally as gratifying. But my favorite was their signature Red Shakshuka - a dish with two sunny side up eggs, chickpeas, onions, peppers, tomato sauce, Lebanese sausage, potatoes and yogurt with a side of pita."
