There aren’t too many places in the city where you can get a meal for less than the cost of your morning latte. Luckily though, there’s Manakeesh, which makes some of the best and most affordable Lebanese food in the Philly. They do all-day brunch, have a spacious dining area, and serve a buttery cashew baklava that you’ll want to stock up on before you leave. The dips and flatbreads are all excellent, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu.
