  • Bache-Martin School reviewed by a parent

    Dedicated and caring teachers, great staff, lots of parent involvement, a hard working Home and School Association, a Friends of Bache Martin group that is working toward re-opening the library...there are lots of good things happening at this school! Student body diversity is great, and the school so far has offered a good academic balance to my kids. The school has an ASL program, and my children are also learning some ASL as well. The students have a good variety of specials: Science (K-8), music (vocal), strings (starting in K), band, visual art, technology, writing, phys. ed. The teachers are approachable, they address your concerns, and will make sure your student is always challenged academically. The partnerships are wonderful; from the Art Museum, to the Philadelphia Orchestra, Give and Go, DanceXchange, Philadelphia Reads, Claymobile...they really give the students a little bit of everything, and lets them explore topics beyond the academics, which helps them grow. The after school programs offered in-house, plus those in the neighborhood that offer pick up from Bache-Martin; are so diverse! (Settlement Music Choir, Zoomballet, Soccer Shots, Snapology, Gaming Club, Young Rembrandts, Girls on the Run, Art Center, Sound Space) They make such a difference to families where both parents work!

The landmark building towered above the surrounding area and filled the air with the delicious aroma of baking cookies.

Tacos in Philly: The Ultimate Guide

The tilapia in La Calaca’s fish tacos get their crisp thanks to a plantain crust and a hop in the fryer. Then they’re topped with cabbage, avocado and a lemon vinaigrette. 2321 Fairmount Avenue

This article has 27 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Our 2017 Best of Philly winner is the only spot in the city serving up tacos de canasta — tacos that are pre-assembled in a basket, often with a layer of onion and sprinkling of chili oil in between — and allowed to steam, then served with salsas. 1030 South 8th Street

This just-south-of-Washington spot serves up some of the Philly restaurant industry’s favorite tacos. No wonder — they’re perfect for a late-night pit stop, with service till 4 a.m. 1104 South 9th Street

Yes, the place has a dedicated following based on the authentic mole and enchiladas (generally covered in mole). But if you’re looking for tacos, this simple beef-and-cheese option is kind of like a Mexican cheesesteak. 1144 South 9th Street

Simple, classic and exactly what you want in a neighborhood taqueria. Plus, it’s a South Philly Mexican BYOB with occasional wandering mariachis, so how can you beat that? 908 Washington Avenue

There’s always a line at this truck, which posts up near 10th Street and Washington Avenue. Be sure to ask for your taco classic style for the traditional toppings of cilantro...

...unless the Americanized option with sour cream, cheese, lettuce, and tomato is more your thing). 1000 Washington Avenue

Choose from a range of taco options here, from straightforward favorites like tilapia and shrimp to chicken bacon ranch. There’s even a Tex Mex section of the taco menu, serving up fillings in flour tortillas with gringo-friendly toppings like guac, lettuce, and cheese. 1225 Fitzwater Street

La Virgen’s slate of masa-based delicacies is expansive, with sopas, huaraches, tlacoyos, and more on the menu. But the fried tacos are our favorite. And they will be yours, too. 1839 South 8th Street

Yes, they do some very authentic Mexican food (a long list of tacos included). But the cool thing about Tamalex is that it also offers Honduran food, and a couple different versions of chilaquiles on their breakfast menu. 1163 South 7th Street

Typically, we’d avoid recommending the American-style tacos rancheros section of the menu, with its sour cream and cheese toppings, but their huitlacoche taco — a prized fungus that sometimes grows on ears of corn — is too good to pass up. 951 Wolf Street

This is a two-person operation — just Raquel and Roman. But the two of them manage to supply everyone who comes with guisados del dia (stews of the day, a rarity in Philly). For a slight upcharge, they’ll make your tortillas fresh. 1629 South 7th Street

Simple and straightforward street-style tacos on a menu already full of sopes, huaraches and excellent spicy shrimp burritos. 1138 South 13th Street

This Pistola’s brings its tweaked taco recipes to South Philly. Try the catfish po’boy taco served with crispy white cabbage, pico de gallo, chipotle aioli and cilantro, for a taste of Mexico via New Orleans. 1934 East Passyunk Avenue

When you’re west of Broad and craving tacos, this is the spot for classic tacos and variations like tacos gringas and tacos del sol — flour tortillas stuffed with melted cheese over slices of skirt steak. 1801 South Chadwick Street

This place does great empanadas and big plates of nachos, but in terms of tacos, they’ve got a big list the covers everything from vegan beef to goat. 1651 East Passyunk Avenue

The first floor of this Garces mainstay has recently been remade as a taqueria, offering tacos in nine different varieties, from the traditional to the Americanized (like the Gringo, which is just plain old ground beef). 3945 Chestnut Street

Each tortilla-swaddled stack of rich, shredded duck meat gets topped with a perfectly poppable (and Instagrammable) fried egg. 2013 Chestnut Street

This light-filled upstairs joint from Oyster House owner Sam Mink puts a contemporary polish on favorite Mexican dishes. To go all out, try the tasting menu, which comes with three tacos, salsas, ceviche, empanadas, and tres leches cake, all for $35. 1516 Sansom Street

Score a trio of Revolution’s uniquely flavored tacos at their brick and mortar spot near 20th and Walnut Streets or follow them on Twitter to find out where their truck is popping up across the city. 2015 Walnut Street

...a chipotle cabbage slaw — which flies in the face of tradition in a delicious way. 120 South 15th Street

Come here any day for the awesome (and filling) chorizo and potato tacos. But the best possible use of Twitter in Philly remains following @locopeztacos to find out when the dollar taco nights are on. 2401 East Norris Street

The star of this glorified Fishtown taco stand’s menu is the fried octopus taco, topped with tomato jam, chimichurri sauce, and queso fresco. But everything else on the menu is almost as good, just as messy and just as ideal for last-call taco bingeing. 1431 Frankford Avenue

This spot on North 2nd Street serves up flavorful tacos for sure (particularly the shredded chicken), but the stellar ingredient here is definitely the salsa. 1356 North 2nd Street

This northern outpost of the Cantina Los Cabalitos family has more than a hundred kinds of tequila behind the bar, Mexican poutine on the menu, a kale caesar (if that’s your jam) and a whole taqueria portion of their menu offering tacos, bowls and burritos. 931 North 2nd Street

With five kinds of breakfast tacos and a list of regular tacos as long as your arm, this is THE place to check out when you’re looking for a taco in Fishtown. And maybe the only place if you’re looking for tacos de cabeza. 1301 North 5th Street

...Even better, their fish is sustainably sourced according to Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guidelines. 1901 Callowhill Street

...relative rarities like lengua, tripe, birria, cecina and suadera (shredded, salted and steamed beef, respectively). 2600 Federal Street, Camden

    From Kensington to deep south Philly, our list of the best places to sate your taco craving. Look, I do not have to convince you to eat tacos. No one has to be convinced to eat tacos.

    I don't have any grandparents left. The last survivor, Grandpa Justin, died four years ago at age 92. I still miss his stories of paratrooping into occupied France, his late-in-life affinity for extracting hugs from pretty young women, and all the assorted email forwards with marginally comedic (yet, upon review, entirely unprintable) jokes written in large, colorful fonts.

The Best Places to Eat and Drink Outdoors in Philly

Tacos in the sun. What else do I need to say? Sure, you’re basically eating in an alley. But it’s a nice alley, okay? So I’ll say it again: Tacos in the sun. 2321 Fairmount Avenue

This article has 41 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

...tables under the big umbrellas are some of the most sought-after seats in town. 227 South 18th Street

The little slice of sunshine next to ASB, with its patio furniture and beer in cans, perfectly captures the backyard party feel that’s the holy grail of so many hip Philly restaurateurs. 1800 Federal Street

...to at least once, just to see for yourself what all the fuss is about. 800 Mifflin Street

...just be friends drinking out in the grass. But it’s always a good time. 1927 East Passyunk Avenue

...one of the most zombie-proof restaurants in the city. So there’s that, too. 1801 Chestnut Street

...Hairy Buffalos help, the latter being a literal cooler full of liquor and fruit juice. 102 South 13th Street

...graffiti (hence the name), and serves the same Asian fusion cuisine and cocktails as Sampan. 124 South 13th Street

Marcie Turney and Val Safran’s version of a neighborhood red gravy joint has a beautiful patio hung with greenery and twinkle lights which, on the best nights, feels more than a little bit magic. 1234 Locust Street

...is one of the most stunning places in the entire city to eat and drink. 208 South 13th Street

Imagine if you had a friend who had just the best rooftop deck in the entire city. And also a fridge full of great beer. And also was a very talented chef. Yeah, that’s what it’s like hanging out upstairs at Standard Tap. 901 North 2nd Street

Okay, so everyone already knows how good Jerry’s is, right? But I’m telling you, it’s even better when the sun is out and you can get a seat in the narrow little patio beside the place. Drinking gin and tonics under the umbrellas is a fine way to kill a Saturday afternoon. 129 West Laurel Street

...lovely (of course), oddly-shaped and a great place to hide out in the neighborhood. 3420 Sansom Street

The food is great, the vibe is chill, and the outdoor seating overlooks Clark Park and the neighborhood that rises above it. It’s the perfect addition to an already excellent neighborhood joint. 4301 Baltimore Avenue

So many of the other outdoor spaces in Philly are tiny, tucked away, half-hidden. But not here. City Tap House has a big outdoor space they use for seating on sunny days and warm nights, and to host events all throughout the summer. 3925 Walnut Street

...truly a multi-cultural wonder. And getting to eat it outside? That’s even better. 4540 Baltimore Avenue

...name and don’t understand how this drink could possibly be good, but it is. 433 Chestnut Street

...top floor, a kind of covered patio-deck that looks out over the intersection of 2nd and Market. There are potted trees and a good beer list, and the whole thing just feels...

...way that’s surprising even though it looks like so many other recent rooftop openings. 200 Market Street

Hey, did you know that Nick Elmi’s Royal Boucherie has a secret upstairs deck? Well, I guess it isn’t so secret anymore… 52 South 2nd Street

Not just a patio, but a formal garden, right in the middle of the city. This outdoor space is filled with seasonal flowers and can seat 120 people, and yet it remains one of Philly’s half-hidden secrets, tucked away behind the walls of the Morris House. 231 South 8th Street

...mousse after midnight is one of the things that makes living in the neighborhood worthwhile. 701 South 4th Street

Twinkle lights, climbing plants, raw wood — the garden patio at Talula’s Garden may be some of the most beautiful, photogenic square footage in the entire city. So isn’t it nice that the food coming from the kitchen is also some of the best? 210 West Washington Square

There aren’t a lot of neighborhood bars around that serve breakfast foods. But Pete’s does, along with a fine selection of craft and imported beer. Take it all outside and make a summer night (or morning) of it. 900 South Front Street

Everyone already loves Martha for its hoagie-heavy menu, its locally-focused cocktails, sour beers, and cheese and charcuterie plates. Know what makes all that better? Eating and drinking outside in their fenced-in patio with built-in bocce court. 2113 East York Street

If you’re rolling with a big crew in Kensington, KQ has a surprisingly large outdoor courtyard out back with long tables perfect for parties looking for excellent pastas, drinks and charcuterie. 1310 Frankford Avenue

...a fire escape rising in the background) gentled a bit with green and growing things. 1253 North Front Street

Medusa was recently taken over by the team behind Green Eggs Cafe. And now that the weather has warmed up, they’ll be opening their outdoor deck for those looking to eat some pizza in the sun. 2327 Gaul Street

Barbecue is made for eating outside. And do you know what Fette Sau cooks? Some pretty good barbecue (they pour a lot of bourbon whiskey, too). 1208 Frankford Avenue

...childish S.O.B. that I am, I love the place for exactly those reasons. 1210 Frankford Avenue

...a drink and some grub with a mob of friends when the sun is out. 1727 North Front Street

An excellent backyard patio for this Fishtown dive bar: The drinks are cheap, there’s always a place to grab a smoke, and if you like Greek food served in a pool hall… Well, that’s weird. But Kosta’s is probably your dream bar. 15 West Girard Avenue

...and be seen outside at Rouge, eating egg white omelets and oysters with champagne mignonette. 205 South 18th Street

...to enjoy the simple, refined plates of pickled vegetables, spaghetti with meatballs or grilled branzino. 2201 Spruce Street

...that are nice for catching some rays and having an early dinner in the sun. 1946 Lombard Street

All outdoor seats in Rittenhouse Square are made for people-watching. But the view from Tequila’s patio comes with vaquero steaks, mole, margaritas and bacon-wrapped, deep-fried shrimp. So that’s even better. 1602 Locust Street

...and sit down for a meal from one of the best chefs in the city. 1521 Spruce Street

...nice place to sit and relax with a plate of truffle fries and farmhouse flatbreads. 2028 Fairmount Avenue

Best happy hour patio on the Avenue, hands down. They’ve got umbrellas for when the sun is out, lights strung up for when it goes down, and flights of tequila and wet burritos to smooth the transition between the two. 1651 East Passyunk Avenue

It is a scientific fact that drinking tequila in the sun makes you a better, happier and more friendly person. And there’s no better place on the Avenue to knock back a couple shots of cactus juice (and chase them with some tacos) than Pistola’s. 1934 East Passyunk Avenue

Tapas taste better when they’re eaten outside. That’s just science. A cool breeze, a hot day, a glass of wine and a couple plates of albondigas and croquetas, I’m just not sure that things get any better than that. 1709 East Passyunk Avenue

...the crowd and the time, give Laurel a call and see what nights are available. 1617 East Passyunk Avenue

    43 Philly Restaurants and Bars With Great Outdoor Seating
    The weather is beautiful. What are you doing inside? It's been a long time coming. There have already been a couple of false starts. But with it now actually being May and with at least a few days of warm weather in a row promised to us, we're ready to call it.
