ABOUT Espresso Cafe & Sushi

When owner Sharon Abergel wanted to take his wife to celebrate an occasion or have an enjoyable dairy meal in their Philadelphia neighborhood, they had no place to go. So he did something about it. He opened up Espresso Cafe & Sushi Bar. That was June 2004. Today, everyone in Philadelphia has a place they can go to, thanks to Sharon. Sharon is an easy going guy who believes that if you’re genuine and give customers what they want, they’ll appreciate it and come back. He guarantees that every customer that comes for the first time, will undoubtedly come for a 2nd, 3rd and 4th time. He knows his food is excellent. Everything is made on premises with the freshest ingredients. For breakfast try one of their superb pastries or omelettes. In fact, they have 7 different omelettes, all made with 3 eggs and garnished with fresh garden vegetables and served with bread and butter. For lunch, a great way to begin the meal is to have the French Onion Soup. It’s full of sliced onions, lightly spiced croutons, all topped with mozzarella cheese. Simply delicious! You can follow that with a perfectly toasted sesame-seed baguette wheel, with tuna, cheese, olives and hard boiled egg. There are plenty of salads to choose from as well as specialty items such as Carpacho, Malawah and Burekas. Of course, you’ll may be in the mood for a cheesy or saucy pasta dish or a tasty fish, like the St. Peter’s Telapia served with Tahini sauce and pine nuts. To round out their menu, they also offer a number of sushi rolls. And one would be remiss, not to try one of their homemade desserts combined with with a nice, hot cappuccino.

Thank you for helping us create a wonderful Simchat Bat for our granddaughter. The food was delicious and our guests were delighted with all the choices of cooked foods and salads. We know we will use you in the future. Many many thanks from my husband and me.

What option do you offer for catering a 5 year old's birthday party? We'd need either something hot (in tin trays to reheat, like mac & cheese or pasta) or cold sandwiches. What kind of pricing> I'd guess about 15 16 kids.

I've been going to this restaurant ever since it opened over 10 yrs ago and always enjoy its relaxed and classy ambiance. They have a great selection of carefully prepared and tasty food. Not only do I love the pasta, sushi, soup, and sandwiches, but I also love the people who work there. Sharon the owner is extremely nice and always very pleasant! I highly highly recommend going there for some amazing kosher food!

Espresso catered the dinner at our Annual Homeowner's meeting and it was a big hit. Everything was beautifully presented and most importantly - most delicious. I have received many compliments and we look forward to engaging Sharon and his time again in the future!

I have come here with family, friends and former students and EVERYONE has loved the food and atmosphere. Sharon, the owner is always willing to go out of his way to accommodate everyone's needs. I especially loved the fact that I could come in on my birthday, Dec.25th and have a delicious meal as well as the owner singing Happy Birthday in Hebrew, while serving dessert...I wish Espresso and Sharon and his family the BEST because they work to give us the BEST!!! Shalom...
