Well this sound awesome! I always love Board Game Night and say to myself, I really nee to do this more. Well now a whole board game restaurant is coming to Philly for us to enjoy!
Our friends at PhillyMag have all the details: When owner Edward Garcia visited his first board game cafe, he couldn’t believe how different the experience was from other restaurants. “We had such a great time,” he said. “Nobody was focused on their phones or TVs playing sports. They were focused on each other — it just felt different.”
“I have a nine-year-old and a six-year-old, and it’s hard for us to find places we can all have a good time — it’s either meant for them or meant for us,” Garcia said. “It will be a great place for families during the day, but you can also come back for a great date night and play games like you did before you had kids.”
It’ll feature a vegetarian menu and more than a thousand games for patrons to play.
The cafe will have a full bar in addition to a menu of mostly plant-based small plates (Garcia and Wong are longtime vegetarians). While they’ll serve dairy-based items like mozzarella sticks and nachos, the menu will also include items like a vegan cheese plate, vegetarian sliders, and meatless burgers.
