The Sweetest Little Sandwich Shop.
Store Front.
RyBread is a small cafe located in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia. The cafe is the name sake of it's owner and operator, Ryan, who after loosing his job as an architect decided to take a road trip to visit various cities around the country. The idea for his sandwich shop was inspired by his journey across the country. That is why you will find that every sandwich is named after, and influence by, a city he visited along his journey. Ryan's architectural attention to detail shines through in his food preparation. He uses the finest ingredients to create delightfully delicious breakfast and lunch foods including sandwiches, scones, salads, cupcakes and other treats of the sort. Their menu is made with love and their prices are fairly reasonable (about $7 per sandwich).

My Favorite RyBread Goodies.
Let me being by saying that everything I have tried here is fantastic, perfectly proportioned, and undoubtedly fresh. But I can't help but recommend some of my favorites for you to try for yourself! The Omaha tops my list with roast beef, gorgonzola, and caramelized onion on panini pressed sourdough bread. Something magic happens on the Santa Monica, when fresh avocado is layered amongst thick cut bacon, lettuce, and tomato on your choice of bread. I have to pay respect to their signature sandwich, the Rybread, consisting of amazing lump crab cake, tomato, greens, and chipotle mayo on a brioche bun. Feeling extra sweet? The homemade carrot cake muffins with cream cheese icing are the best I've ever had.

The Rybread.
The Friendliest Service.
The main reason I love coming to RyBread (after their great food) is that the service is so damn pleasant. The father-son team not only owns the place, but are there every day to make your sandwich with care. Needless to say, they know my name by now, along with the names of all the other regulars. As RyBread grows they continue to cater to the interests of their customers. RyBread now delivers to certain areas surrounding Fairmount. They also just extended their hours during the week for my fellow late risers out there. As of May 9th, they are now open until 7pm on Monday-Thursday instead of the former 3:30pm. There are three indoor tables to eat at, but there is also seating out front on Fairmount Avenue as well as patio seating in the sunny, backyard nook.
Back yard seating.

You, too, will fall in love with RyBread. Now you know.
