Skybrunch at Top of the Tower

Breathtaking views while you brunch can only be found Sundays 10 am-2pm at Skybrunch at Top of the Tower at 1717 Arch Street. You won’t believe your eyes as you enter the building and take the elevator up to the 50th floor. The hostess is waiting to greet you in a hallway with buffet style brunch tables to the left and right piled high with American cuisine. You’ll be escorted to your table in the ballroom to the left where you can enjoy dining on white tablecloths and taking in incredible views of the city.

Our table had a Northwest view of Philadelphia overlooking Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Logan Circle, and the Art museum. Even on an overcast day this view alone made it worth coming to Skybrunch. After we were seated, our server stopped by to take our drink order. Each guest enjoys a complimentary cocktail with their meal. Choose from a list of signature cocktails far more exciting than Mimosas and Bloody Marys.

We tried the Cloud 50 Cocktail Spritzer with La Marca Prosecco & Freshly Squeezed Blood Orange Juice. This was a great morning beverage and paired perfectly with brunch. We also tried the signature Blue Skyy with Blueberry Skyy Vodka, White Cranberry Juice, Blue Curacao, Splash of Lime Juice and Fresh Blueberry Skewer. This was probably the most eye-catching drink of the day with its bright blue color.

Then we checked out the brunch spread over the 7 dining stations in the hall including:
