This week, Mercer Cafe at the Navy Yard celebrates its two and a half year anniversary! We stopped by the 15th & Kitty Hawk eatery to see what’s new since its grand opening in May 2015.
“Creating a comfortable gourmet eatery and carrying the legacy of my family’s traditions is a dream come true for me,” said Liza Bello, Mercer Cafe Co-owner and Manager. “Mercer Cafe is passionate about sharing the family’s authentic recipes with fellow neighbors in the Yard, from my grandmother’s famous crab cakes to my grandfather’s creamed chipped beef.”
Everything is homemade by the dynamic family and locally purchased from Philly neighborhoods. Liza noted the bestsellers at lunch are the chicken cutlet sandwiches, the turkey clubs, and the turkey specials.
Since opening, Liza and her team have adapted to its customers’ requests, including expanded grab-and-go offerings, a larger coffee menu with loyalty cards, a new outdoor patio pergola, and quicker service for the business crowd. To further accommodate customers, Mercer Cafe added new gluten-free items to its breakfast, lunch, and brick oven pizza menus.
