Honeysuckle Provisions
310 S 48th St, Philadelphia, PA 19143
Opened October 29

With Honeysuckle Provisions, husband-wife team Omar Tate and Cybille St. Aude-Tate have opened a restaurant with sustainability and identity in mind. Their café and grocery store in the Walnut Hill neighborhood of West Philadelphia exclusively features products grown or crafted by Black artisans and farmers. The menu includes dishes like Jamaican patties and a fonio grain bowl with a green goddess dressing. There's also an homage to Pennsylvania, in the form of a vegetarian black-eyed pea scrapple. Instead of your normal cup of coffee, the team is serving cowpea coffee, a nutrient-rich and earthy spin on cold brew. The couple is working collaboratively with the grocery arm of the business to operate the café as a zero-waste space. Under the label of Honeysuckle Projects, they plan to open a community center in the next two years.
