The owners of South Street newcomer Umai Cafe are eager to prove they can do it all. Curious folks west of Broad can now embark on a culinary tour of Asia with options from Chinese to Thai and Japanese. (They also do hoagies!) Cheap-as-dirt lunch specials, ranging from pepper steak with onion to teriyaki chicken bento boxes, complement Pad Thai and penang curry plates from The Land of a Thousand Smiles. If none of these cuisines are your jam, go the gringo route with cheesesteaks, deli sandwiches or burgers. They've also, strangely, have a Taylor Swift coffee table book available for perusal inside if you want to read up on what her whole deal is.
This is also a breakfast spot, carrying
over the tradition of a previous tenant. You just can't beat the "Good Morning Platter" — two eggs, home fries, toast, your choice of breakfast meat and a coffee — for a paltry $4.
