The team from New York City's acclaimed Rebelle recently opened this casual, 3,000-square-foot bistro, located in the foot of the shining new FMC Building (just steps from 30th Street Station). Since its launch, Walnut Street Cafe has been praised for its pastry counter, serving up everything from pistachio cherry croissants to chocolate hazelnut kouign amann to raspberry spelt cones, all perfect pairings to the Rival Bros. Coffee on tap. The brunch menu hits savory notes, too, with steak and eggs, scrapple served over black rice and smoked salmon eggs Benedict.
