I love restaurants that are forever changing, and every time you visit there is a different menu. Talula’s Garden was one of those places, offering a menu of seasonal favourites produced from locally sourced ingredients. It was much more than another restaurant serving farm to table goodness, Talula’s Garden was one of those places that made you feel right at home.

Steps from Washington Square, one of Philly’s five original park squares, this cosy and intimidate little restaurants offer a comfortable and homey spot to enjoy Sunday Brunch or a delicious dinner.

Talula’s Garden Dinner Menus

What you need to know when dining at Talula’s is that you will be given two menus at the start of your dinner. The first is the Cheese Menu: Talula’s features an extraordinary cheese tasting menu which includes a seasonal platter and some other carefully paired platters of cheeses from around the world.

The dinner menu featured seasonal starters, pasta and main courses were each described with delicious yumminess that made choosing just one extremely difficult.

I don’t know how we managed to save room for dessert, but we shared some delicious treats from the dessert menu at our table.

Restaurant Décor and Vibe

All around me were inspirational words and messages, and I felt like I was sitting in someone’s living room or dining room.

Outside it poured rain preventing us from sitting on the patio, which even in the rain felt like a dream backyard scenario with green vegetation, flowers and patio lights. This is one of the reasons I plan to visit this restaurant again. I have to experience my next unique dinner outside amongst the beauty of this patio.
