A visit to Ponce City Market isn’t complete without a stroll down its Central Food Hall. The hall is packed with restaurants from James Beard award winning chefs, global cuisine, and intoxicating aromas at every turn. To help you navigate this culinary bounty, we’ve put together the perfect weekend of dining at the Central Food Hall. From breakfast Saturday morning to Sunday night dessert, we mapped out where and what to eat at some of PCM’s best restaurants.

Saturday

Breakfast

Spiller Park Coffee is brought to you by baseball lovers and coffee drinkers Dale Donchey and Hugh Acheson. It’s going to be a long weekend of amazing food, so keep it light but high energy with coffee and a Sublime Donut. 

Lunch

For your first full meal, head to Botiwalla, PCM’s latest addition to the Central Food Hall. You’ll find kebabs, tandoori, and other Indian street food. It’s a great place for a quick lunch and to experience food you wouldn’t normally eat.    

Dinner

The Mercury is just a quick walk upstairs to PCM’s second floor. Taking cues from the 1960s, you’ll find classic American bites and an impressive craft cocktail menu. The intimate atmosphere makes it perfect for date night. It is Saturday night after all.

Sunday

Brunch

Located at the end of the Central Food Hall, the sunlit filled dining room at Brezza Cucina is a great place to bring your family and friends for brunch. Get your fix of Sunday morning cocktails and enjoy several Italian inspired dishes like caramelized banana pancakes and scrambled eggs with prosciutto.

Lunch

H&F Burger isn’t just another burger place. You’ll appreciate its fresh ingredients, butter-toasted bun, and juicy patties the moment you take a bite. What puts H&F over the edge is its made from scratch ketchup. It’s unlike any other condiment you’ve had, and you’ll soon become addicted to its sweet and tangy flavor.

Dinner

Minero offers light and affordable Mexican dishes from James Beard award-winning Chef Sean Brock. It’s a delicious way to round out the weekend but is no way lacking in the flavor department.

Dessert

Round out your weekend with a sweet scoop from Honeysuckle Gelato. Their selection of flavors, sandwiches, and shakes will make the coming of Monday morning a little less painful.
