24 Hours in Philly

NYC hound Will be staying at the Courtyard by Marriott on Juniper Tuesday for about 24 hours. Looking for breakfast, lunch (cheesesteak) and dinner.

I was at this hotel once before for about 9 hours and quickly ran to the Independence Brew Pub near the Reading Terminal Market. I was starving and in a hurry and ordered the cheesesteak, with my fingers crossed. What I got was tantamount to what I'd expect if I'd been in Kansas.

Any nearby breakfast recommendations? Would have tried Dutch Eating Place, but I guess they're not open Tuesday's. We'll be arriving at about 8am after being up all night, so looking for something nearby. How about Sabrina's?

For lunch, I'd like to find a much more authentic cheesesteak than my last experience. Hopefully near the hotel, but will cab it for the real deal. I'm thinking about trying Rick's in the Market???

We'll probably be spent by dinner time, so would also like to stay somewhat close to the hotel. So far Monk's has been suggested. We'll be satisfied with a strong beer selection and a quality burger.
