Oh, and Tastycakes. Pick em up at a WaWa's
I agree, Jim's is the best. I always liked South Street in the 90's but haven't been there in a few years so not exactly sure what it's turned into. Was a cool place for record stores (611 and Digital Underground).
Go to Independence Hall and the Barnes is a great place.
