Brunch near Havertown, Drexel Hill, Media, Conshocken (not too far off blue route)

Any ideas where we could go for something good- besides Radnor Hotel. It does not have to be buffet or price fixe- exploring all options!

    The Spring Mill Cafe in Conshohocken. Country french cusine with a north african influence is, at brunch, supplemented by some well executed, more traditional options. BYOB, no rush, reservations accepted and a fairly charming atmosphere.

      The Classic Diner on Rt 30 in Frazer. It's a little bit of a hike from the area you're looking in but worth the ride!

        Where, exactly, is the Classic Diner?

        Not sure if they do "brunch" (i.e. eggs and stuff) but Pepperoncini is open at noon on Saturdays and Sundays. They're right over the Bridge in Conshohocken.

          Not supremely chowish, but I always have enjoyed Iron Hill. There's one in Media.

            Barone's Tuscan Grill near Springfield Mall has quite a nice little buffet brunch. Omelets and pasta made to order, good desserts and a chocolate fountain, reasonably priced. It's a small place and fills up quickly after church lets out, so we go early (I thnk they start around 10). We also went to the Springfield Country Club for brunch recently. It's a very nice buffet spread and includes a mimosa. Service is not great (a bunch of kids waiting tables) but since it's a buffet it doesn't really matter.

              You could also try Hanne Breakfast Nook in Havertown (2409 W Darby Rd). Definitely breakfast and not brunch, but it's the kind of tiny no-frills breakfast place that seems like it's from another time. Always a line, but worth the wait!

                I hear that Taylor's at the Olde Mill in Norristown has a wonderful brunch... I have eaten dinner there and everything was excellent, including the service and the live jazz was very enjoyable.
