Job Details

Cafe Lift, part of the popular 13th Street Kitchens restaurant group, opened 19 years ago. It was husband and wife, Michael and Jeniphur Pasquarello’s vision to create a restaurant that would not only be progressive in its location, but in the food that they would be serving. As a cafe they strived to push the boundaries of what a bruncherie could be, and placed a strong emphasis on supporting the regions farmers and purveyors.19 years later, that same drive and passion has not changed. We are looking to expand our culinary team with a candidate that has that same desire.

Open 8am-3pm daily, Cafe Lift offers an amazing elevated brunch menu, and long-standing army of regular guests. This is an excellent position for a Chef de Cuisine, and a rare opportunity for a Chef to maintain day-time hours.

Part of 13th Street Kitchens

In 2003, Michael and Jeniphur Pasquarello opened Cafe Lift, housed in a historic, refurbished factory along 13th Street in Philadelphia's Callowhill neighborhood.

Many years later, they are still serving brunch to the crowds, seven days a week from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. The menu evolves seasonally and all ingredients are sourced from responsible growers, and hyper-locally whenever possible. Café Lift proudly serves quality coffee drinks, expertly prepared with roasted beans created by the owner and a local roaster. The open, post-industrial space also hosts private events during the evening when the chefs of 13th Street Kitchens, its parent restaurant group, collaborate on special menus spanning various cuisines.
