Point Breeze is a neighborhood lying just South of Graduate Hospital in South Philadelphia. This neighborhood has become very popular in recent years due to proximity to Center City, affordable home prices & lots of new construction. The housing stock is varied with a mix of new construction, cute brick front 2 stories, some brownstones & multi family dwellings. There is easy access to Drexel & Penn’s campuses from the Grays Ferry Bridge as well as 76 & 95. As more & more development occurs there are an increasing number of businesses catering to the residents of the neighborhood.

Bars, Restaurants & Nightlife
There seem to be new restaurants, bars & take out joints cropping up all over. One of our favorites is American Sardine Bar where the food is delicious & there are tons of micro brews, many local, available on tap & in bottles. I heard they got the go ahead for outdoor seating this spring. Lovers of alfresco dining rejoice! OCF Cafe also has an outpost in the neighborhood where you can grab coffee & a pastry. Breezy’s Cafe is another spot that opened recently that is vegetarian friendly & serves lunch & dinner. This summer a spot on Washington Ave. riding the Point Breeze/Graduate Hospital border is opening that will have take-out/delivery pizza & fresh baked breads & pastries.
