Any good lunch spots in Radnor, PA?

I live in Philadelphia (proper), but work out in the suburbs (Radnor, Villanova, across from Randor HS). I've been to Susanna Foo's out here, it's the only good place I've found so far. Any other recommedations?

    I'm a big fan of Nudy's Cafe. It's on Conestoga Road in Devon. They have great sandwiches and usually some interesting specials. On a nice day you can sit on their patio outside.

      Thanks! I'll check it out next week. Perfect now that the weather is so nice.

      Hope that location of Nudy's is better than the other ones.

      Lets see...you have Belrose 333, Thai Pepper, Margaret Kuos, Johnny's dogs and a bunch of other places if you drive 5 min on 30West into Wayne.

        Try Hana or Osaka for sushi (in wayne) or try Your Gourmet Kitchen (near the square in wayne) for great gourmet sandwiches.

          Great, thanks. Was looking for a good Japanese restaurant. Which place do you recommend for sushi?

            Hana is good for sushi.
            East Winds(?) used to be good, but I have not been there in a few years.

          Haven't been myself, but I pass by it everyday... Silverspoon Cafe in Wayne. It's kind of tucked away next to the WaWa.

            Have you tried Pond and Bistro Cassis? They're extremely close to you, but I haven't been to either for at least a year. I had a terrific lunch yesterday at Cafe Fresko in Bryn Mawr (about a 5 minute drive on route 30). If Bryn Mawr's not too far, that gives you a lot more options.

              I also work at Radnor Financial Center. Head down Route 30 into the center of Wayne to Teresa's Cafe for the pasta and pizza. Their Francese pizza with goat cheese, carmelized onions, and mushrooms is to die for. Go before noon, to avoid the inevitable parking headaches. Avg price = ~$12

                You beat me to it. Teresa's rocks. I love their calamari, although I wish they would heat the marinara sauce or offer an aioli alternative. Margaret Kuo's beats out Sue Foo anyday for authentic Chinese and Osaka is my regional choice for sushi. No one ever mentions Landis Catering as the best deli around. Excellent soups, salads and sandwiches made by this long-standing family establishment that also features a hunderd or so imported beers. Any place that still roasts their own beef and turkeys is several cuts above the rest (pardon the pun.) They're on Rt. 30 (Lancaster) roughly across the street from the CVS.

                  Ditto on the sauce that comes with the calamari at Teresa's Cafe. It was room temp and overall just not the best option with the calamari. They need to offer a different dipping option. I love the calamari though! i just squeeze the lemon on it and a bit of salt - Yumm!

                  on a beautiful day, the porch at The Wayne Hotel on Lancaster Avenue in the center of Wayne is a lovely spot. Their soups and salads are typically good.
