Located in Midtown Village at 1216 Chestnut St., the two story, 187-seat, restaurant is the 25th location of the internationally recognized brand, which has brought its decadent dishes, sweets and treats to guests around the world for over a decade.
“We are excited to bring a sweet escape to the Philadelphia community,” shares owner Charissa Davidovici. “The Center City neighborhood’s energy and atmosphere is the perfect place for Sugar Factory’s family-friendly dining, which offers a memorable experience for guests of all ages.”
Guests can expect an immersive experience from the moment they enter Sugar Factory. The main dining area offers both indoor and outdoor seating, and is filled with photo-worthy moments, from neon signs, floral walls, and a colorful candy heart wall that is perfect for posing.
