Taylor Swift left a restaurant and its staff better than how she found them after dining with tourmate Ed Sheeran and an entourage in Philadelphia.

"I called my mom to tell her Swift was there, and she wanted me to take a picture," says Shawn Gallo, head chef of Ralph's Italian Restaurant. As is evidenced above, Swifty and company obliged with the photo opp.

Gallo tells E! News his 11-year-old son Shawnee is autistic and says, "While I'm at work my mom and my son love to listen to [Taylor's] music." So it was a special treat when T-Swift gave him two tickets to her concert. "It was so kind-hearted of her," says Gallo. "It was my son and I's first concert we've ever been to. It was really special."

On top of everything else, Swift's entourage left the staff a $500 tip. Sounds like "Today Was a Fairytale" for the chef and his son. Way to go, Swifty.
