Breakfast in Blue Bell, Plymouth Meeting...etc.
Where can I find a good breakfast place in Blue Bell, Plymouth Meeting, or near the Blue Route? I heard the Blue Bell diner sucks, which is a shame.
If you're willing to travel a bit further west on Germantown Pike, I recommend Deeg's Place in Evansburg. Evansburg is just past Methacton High on the way to Collegeville.
Deeg's Place is only open for breakfast and lunch and has a large menu of items. Their omelettes, french toast, and specialty pancakes are fabulous, and the lunch menu is quite good too by the way.
I guess my last post was not acceptable for some really odd reason.
All I said was, you might want to try the 401 Diner in Conshohocken. (not fancy but okay)
If you wanted to get a bit more upscale, Cassis in Radnor has a lovely Sunday brunch and they are right near the Blue Route.
(now, what was wong with what I said forum nanny?)
The Blue Bell Diner hasn't been open in quite a while, but it looks like yet another incarnation will open there in the relative near future.
Den's suggestion of Ray's is decent, but IMO, that place has gone downhill quite a bit. The service has gotten slow and the food has gotten to be mediocre.
The Blue Bell area is dying for a good breakfast place. The closest thing is in Montgomeryville at a deli called Pumpernicks.
Mitchh, I totally agree with you about Rays. We went there the other night at 7-ish, and even though the place was practically empty didn't get back out again until after 9! YUCK service.
I drove by the bb diner tonight, there were lights on and cars outside, so it looks like someone is doing something in there for sure.
I've heard good things about a diner on 63 in Lansdale, but haven't been there yet myself. Pumpernicks is the best around, IMHO.
I'm going to have to look for Zina's in Ambler tho, it's much closer to home.
There are NO good bfast places anywhere near BB or plymouth meeting. All of the restaurants listed here serve diner-quality bfasts -at best.
May I suggest that you have cereal and head to Philly and eat at Sabrina's Cafe at 9th and Christian. Prepare for a wait unless you get there early!
The William Penn Inn does a Sunday Brunch Buffet that is to die for. They have everything...I mean EVERYTHING.
Blue bell diner was closed when you originally posted. They are now open (since Easter) under new ownership and are really good. Give them a try, the staff is friendly and attentive, the menu is extensive. Their breakfasts are generous and they're always busy on weekend mornings.
