East Passyunk Avenue is thriving and is home to some of the best restaurants in the city, especially when it comes to BYOBs. Now, you don't have to travel as far or plan ahead for the perfect bottle to pair with your dinner, thanks to Vin Cafe, which is now open at 1926 East Passyunk Avenue.
The new store will showcase bottles and cases from Buckingham Valley Vineyards, one of Pennsylvania’s oldest family owned and run vineyards. Currently, the shop is just a retail space, but has plans to become a full service cafe. A rep for the store told Eater Philly
that after a few months they will serve wines by the glass, small plates such as charcuterie and desserts, Illy
Italian coffee and espresso, and Sole kombucha
from Bucks County.
Vin Cafe isn’t the only spot on Passyunk that has found loopholes in PLCB liquor laws. Pollyodd
, a limoncello retailer located just down the street, was the first non-PLCB liquor store in the state as well as being the first female owned and operated distillery in the country. Manatawny Still Works also has plans to open up a satellite retail location
on Passyunk in the fall to satisfy all of South Philly’s spirit needs.
Store hours will be 3 PM - 10 PM Tuesday through Thursday, 3 PM - 11 PM Fridays, and 10 AM - 11 PM on Saturdays. Head on down and enjoy the wonders of post-prohibition Philadelphia!
