Tale of the Tape

Dueling Sandwich Spots at 2am

None 5 Photos Bub and Pop’s and TakEatEasy
There aren’t many places where you can grab a sandwich at 2pm... and also at 2am. Here, then, are two of them, now open only a block away from one anotherBub and Pop’s (open until 3am on weekends) and TakEatEasy (open until 5am starting next weekend).

The Environs
Bub and Pop’s: Pizza parlor meets big-city diner—a counter along the window, photos of Philly street scenes.
TakEatEasy: A European café with translucent murals of gangsters and a projection screen showing Premier League matches.

The Sandwiches
Bub and Pop’s: Philly-style hoagies like brisket with a fried egg, and the inspired Bolognese Parmesan with meat sauce, arugula and three kinds of cheese.
TakEatEasy: The former chef at Fast Gourmet is rolling out world-cuisine sandwiches like duck confit, lamb lavash and a manchego/tomato/garlic number.

The Other Stuff
Bub and Pop’s: Kettle chips, deck-oven pizza and six kinds of pickles, including the pickled chilies known as the Bowl of Fire (it’ll seem like a great idea at 2am).
TakEatEasy: From 3 to 11pm, pop in for a more leisurely meal of tapas like croquettes with serrano ham or salt cod.

The Drinks
Bub and Pop’s: For now, all kinds of bottles and cans of soda. But soon: a fountain system with housemade sodas.
TakEatEasy: A full bar, including sangrias, Spanish wines and DC Brau’s The Citizen on tap. But only until midnight. Besides, you’ve had enough elsewhere.
