Food trucks parked at The Porch through December

With the days feeling shorter, a mid-day outdoor lunch break might be just the thing sun-starved 9-to-5'ers need, even despite our recent cold snap. Fortunately for the 17,000 employees who work within a five-minute walk of The Porch at 30th Street and the 37,000 daily passengers who travel through Amtrak's 30th Street Station, lunch trucks will be parked at The Porch through December.

University City District announced the November food truck lineup, which includes...

  • Wednesdays, 11:30am - 2:30pm: Lucky Old Souls, Cherry Bomb Bus, Just Jackie's, Buttercream Cupcake
  • Fridays, 11:30am - 2:30pm: Pitruco Pizza, Taco Mondo, Reuben on Rye, Sweet Box Cupcakes

On Mondays and Tuesdays from 7:30am until 2pm, The Porch will host breakfast options thanks to Undrgrnd Donuts (Mondays) and Schmear It (Tuesdays).

In December the lunchtime lineup will include Street Food, Foolish Waffles, Sum Pig and The Cow and the Curd on Wednesdays and Mac Mart, The Tot Cart, Mama's Meatballs and Milk & Sugar on Fridays.

November marks The Porch's second anniversary and its continued popularity. In its first year alone, The Porch provided space for 13,500 al fresco lunches.
