In 2003, Michael and Jeniphur Pasquarello opened Café Lift, housed in a historic, refurbished factory along 13th Street in Philadelphia’s Callowhill neighborhood.
Many years later, they are still serving brunch to the crowds, six days a week from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The menu evolves seasonally and all ingredients are sourced from responsible growers, and hyper-locally whenever possible. Café Lift proudly serves quality coffee drinks, expertly prepared with beans by local roasters Rival Bros. The open, post-industrial space also hosts private events during the evening when the chefs of 13th Street Kitchens, its parent restaurant group, collaborate on special menus spanning various cuisines.
