After nearly six years serving brunch-goers on the corner of Fourth and Cross Streets in South Philadelphia, The Dutch closed the original location and relocated to 1537 S 11th Street former home to Fond, The Dutch’s sister restaurant which closed in December 2021. Fans of the popular bruncherie can experience their go-to dishes including Ana Banana Pancakes, Rings Bologna Eggs Benedict, and Savory Dutch Baby, with the addition of brand-new fare, and for the first time ever – a bountiful dinner menu featuring hearty, country-style cuisine and full bar program.

Executive Chef Kevin Watters, chef of The Dutch since opening in April 2016, has crafted an extensive brunch and dinner menu, with highlights including the following:


  • The Strammer Max ($15) with two "dippy eggs" and creamed chipped beef
  • Sweet Dutch Baby ($10) with lemon and powdered sugar
  • Corned Beef or Turkey Reuben ($16) with sauerkraut, Russian dressing, marble rye, and Swiss cheese


  • Crispy Pork Belly Bites ($12) with smoked paprika aioli and celery

  • Steak Frites ($29) with kale and chimichurri
  • Dutch Mussels ($17) with Lebanon bologna cream cheese and scallion, served with fries
  • Zucchini Noodle Primavera ($22) with seasonal vegetables, garlic, and parmesan

Chef and Owner Lee Styer is adding a touch of Fond to the menu with signature dishes such as Chicken Liver Mousse ($13), Roasted Mushroom Soup ($12), Pork Belly ($26) with olive oil mashed potatoes, chimichurri, and pickled vegetables.
