Adobe Cafe
 is one of those places you enjoy going to time after time. The food is great and the staff, especially the bartenders, seem to extremely happy you are there. The other guests are friendly and talkative and the atmosphere is terrific with a big bar surrounded by televisions.  Now, don’t think this is a loud boisterous place, it is just the right mix of activity while remaining comfortable. There is even Quizzo and other activities on certain nights to keep you entertained. More NYC and Philly reviews to come.

The Adobe Cafe Experience: On Tuesday, May 29, 2012 about 7:00 P.M. I go to Adobe with two friends to watch the Phillies game and eat a meal at the bar.  Yes, another Phillies review! My friends are from, and have a business in, the hopping East Passyunk Avenue neighborhood of South Philly and we frequently go to Adobe for a meal, a drink or to catch a game.  It is a terrific combination of locals and others from Center City and beyond who have come to East Passyunk to dine, drink, stroll and shop.  The neighborhood is perfect for this.

We order margaritas and food.  The drinks are very tasty, some of the best you will ever have.  My friends order wings, lots of them, in  multiple flavors, and they are very good and come highly recommended.  I have a Chicken Quesadilla and the Skillet Seared Filet Mignon Steak Tips.  Both were great but the Steak Tips were terrific, nice chucks of tender steak with a special sauce with fajitas.  Will get them again next time I go back.

I really like the layout at Adobe.  Big centered, three sided bar with about 4 seats on the short end and about 7 on each of the longer sides.  A good view from almost any seat and easy to see the televisions.  The televisions are usually tuned to sports and the staff is very attentive to keeping the channels changed to a good game.  From both longer sides you can look into the restaurant and see out onto bustling East Passyunk Avenue through the large windows.  AC was on high, making it very comfortable considering it was over 90 degrees, humid with thunderstorms outside.

Business Travelers:  A good placed for meeting and hanging with coworkers, clients and colleagues. A little off the beaten path for Business Travelers in Center City’s Business District but worth the trip from Center City and beyond for the crowded sidewalks of East Passyunk Avenue with its big selection of shops and restaurants.  Go to Capogiro Gelato & Sorbetto for some the best Italian Gelato in the country as you walk “the Avenue”.  E’Punk as the area is know is an easy trip from Center City via subway or cab.  Combine your trip with a walking tour of the famous South Philadelphia Italian Market nearby. Women traveling on business will feel welcome and comfortable in Adobe and the surrounding neighborhood.
