Spring has arrived in Philadelphia! The trees and flowers are in bloom, the sunshine is abundant, and birds are chirping outside. There are many great outdoor events to take advantage of at The Navy Yard, both during the day (take a break from work) or on evenings/weekends (to benefit charitable organizations). Here’s a short list; all events can be found on our Events page.
In 2000, Tom Woltjen, Sr. and his wife Dina opened Mercer Café at 2619 Westmoreland Street in Port Richmond. Their children, Liza Bello and Thomas Woltjen, Jr., have grown the business, earning loyal customers with their dedication to gourmet comfort food adapted from family recipes. Expansion felt like the natural next step after 15 years in business. Now the family will open a second Mercer Café at The Navy Yard, adding to the amenities on campus for its 11,500 employees and the local South Philadelphia neighborhood.
Mercer Café, located at 15th Street and Kitty Hawk Avenue in The Navy Yard, will have its grand opening on May 6. The restaurant will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mercer Café will also have special hours on Sunday, May 3, for the Broad Street Run. Read more
