Do you like Green Eggs?

A nifty little South Philly cafe is prepping for its opening.

The long-in-the-works Green Eggs Cafe will be opening at 1306 Dickinson St. on Jan. 2 -- on the corner of Clarion Street, across from Victor Cafe, next door to Ippolito's -- and despite the name, there's nothing Seussical about it.

(I count only One Fish -- salmon -- on the menu, for example.)

The place, which restored the original tin ceilings, is LEED-ed and eco-friendlified to the max.

Shown here is the comfy seating area in one room, where neighbors can drink coffee while watching TV.

Coowner Stephen Slaughter, working with Andrew Zuccarini, describes the approach as Sabrina's-meets-Starbucks, in that there will be an all-day sit-down breakfast/brunch (as in the popular Italian Market storefront) and to-go La Colombe coffee and espresso.

Chef Keith Cleary is a Californian who most recently worked in Alaska.

Meanwhile, check out the menu; note that the web site is not up and the phone number is incorrect.
