Most of Mayfair’s restaurants and retailers are along Frankford Avenue and East Roosevelt Boulevard. The Lincoln Highway runs conveniently near East Roosevelt Boulevard, and the Mayfair Shopping Center is located off of Hellerman Street, offering retail shops, food options, a gym, and a grocery store.
In Mayfair, you’ll tend to get more space for your money. Home prices tend to be much more affordable than in neighborhoods closer to Center City, and housing options range from a variety of fixer-uppers to charming brick twins.

Stretching along both Frankford Avenue and East Roosevelt Boulevard are a variety of food options, including Chinese, Thai, and Italian spots. You’ll also find the Mayfair Diner, which has been a staple in Mayfair since 1932. The diner is open 24/7 and serves up American classics in a retro setting.

With its historic brick row homes, many houses in Mayfair have front yards or patios. You’ll see long-time residents and young families with children around this neighborhood, and while some public transportation is available, most people prefer to drive.
Friday Night Fun
The Rolling Thunder Skating Center, located on the northwest side of Mayfair, hosts special events and themed skating nights for adults and children. And for some family-friendly fare to round out the evening, the Four Seasons Diner serves food 24/7 in a cozy, classic eatery setting. Mayfair also has a handful of bars and pubs along Frankford Avenue, offering up a selection of beer and food.
The Perfect Sunday
Just across Cottman Avenue is the picturesque Pennypack Park. Offering miles of hiking trails, a creek, and bike trails, the park also hosts the Pennypack Park Music Festival during the summer months, where locals and visitors can relax on the grass and enjoy live music. On a nice day, grab your bike and hop on the Pennypack Trail, which runs through Pennypack Park and all the way down to the Delaware River.
Most residents drive in this area, but some public transportation is available. Buses run along Cottman Avenue, and the nearest SEPTA rail station is in the neighboring town of Tacony.
