Mary Beth had the day off yesterday and we went to Vera's Country Cafe (4203 Durham Rd, Ottsville, PA, 18942; 610-847-8372). I had heard good things from a number of people about Vera's, so we thought we'd check it out.
Let's just say that we didn't need to eat lunch. The breakfast menu is pretty typical a place like that, but there are lots of choices from egg dishes, to pancakes, to creamed dried beef and more. I had one of the specials--a Wild Mushroom, Bacon, Cheddar & Potato Omelet. Huge and filled with goodies. Very tasty. It came with home fries and toast. MB got the SOS (Creamed Dried Beef) as is typical for her. Very good. The sauce was nice and thick. We shared another special--a Strawberry-Chocolate Chip Pancake. We ordered just one (nice that you can order as many as you want). That was all we needed as a "side dish". It was as big as the plate it came on. (Sorry, I forgot my camera. I'll have to go back to get pictures.)
If you're looking for a good place to get a good, home-style, affordable breakfast in a nice casual setting with very friendly staff, check out Vera's. They serve lunch, too. If you've been there for lunch, let me know how you liked it!
Have you been to the Cafe Blue Moose in Doylestown? I've not been there, but have heard great things about it. The neat thing about this place is that it was started 4 years ago by a couple of teenage friends. Housed in one of their homes, the "restaurant" was a hit--so much so, that a permanent spot in New Hope will be opening next month. Read all about this great venture in this article from Bucks County Taste. It's pretty cool.
There are so many interesting and impressive food spots right in our backyard. Let me know about some of your favorites!
