Tucked in a bustling intersection on the corner of Germantown and Chelten right across the street from Walgreens and Sneaker Villa is the brand new eatery Happy Bread Café.  Opened for three weeks now, the official grand opening was celebrated Saturday, November 21st with a café full of hungry customers, city officials, and a live DJ to get everyone into a feel good mood.

The ribbon cutting was blessed by former Mayor Wilson Goode, Sr. sharing a tidbit of history with the location himself. “Thirty-two years ago, my campaign office was in the same building.  Hopefully the café will be as successful as my campaign was.” Councilwoman Cindy Bass was also on hand, sharing with the crowd that she is already a regular. “The food is really good.  I don’t even like eggs and the eggs here are good.”  Roger Kern of the Commerce Department showed his appreciation for the grand opening as well as State Representative Stephen Kinsey, reminding everyone this holiday season how important it is to buy black. “We’ve gotta support our own and our community.”

Owner Zoe Rose was especially appreciative of her family (some of which are on her waiting staff), and wanted to encourage the community to come out and support her open mic initiatives happening at the café as well.

If the atmosphere is what you’re going for, Happy Bread Café has that. Complete with fire engine red and lime green walls filled with vintage pictures of Philadelphia, it has a comfy, homey feel to it.  The aroma of coffee and freshly made breads and omelets may also appeal to you.  Customer Rona from Center City was enticed by the décor. “The location is great for what it is and I really like the fact that there’s so many windows especially for breakfast, it’s so beautiful.”

The menu has a host of items all in a great price range from sandwiches to hoagies and cupcakes.  This is not a café strictly reserved for bagels and coffee.  You can even get a jerk chicken grilled cheese!  The menu exhibits such flavorful options to suit any customer’s stomach and budget with no single item over $10.  Their slogan is “you deserve the best” and the Happy Bread Café is truly bringing their best to Germantown.
