Valley Forge/Collegeville Breakfast/brunch?

dochoch Apr 26, 2008 06:41 AM

My wife and I will be coming to the Valley Forge-Collegeville area to attend a wedding in a couple of weeks. Are there any places we should check out for good breakfasts and or brunches?

    Are you looking for simple/inexpensive good or nicer style gourmet-ish brunch?

      Simple/inexpensive good is just fine with us.

        You might want to try Michaels deli in the Valley Forge shopping center (which is really King of Prussia area). Good deli and breakfast food-I believe you can get breakfast all day.

        I gotta think there are many places in Phoenixville (which is quite near Collegeville) that would suit. You might want to read the recent discussions on the Phoenixville thread.

        And, although I may get kicked off of chowhound for mentioning it, there is a good Bob Evans in Oaks, which is the exit before Collegeville on 422.

        If you go the other say on 422 (west) one exit, you come to Royersford. Take a left on Township Line and go through the town you will come to Annmarie's Place, which is supposedly a fabulous breakfast spot. Some days there is actually a line out front.

      For a typical diner experience I recommend the Collegeville Diner.

      For an atypical diner experience (upscale, gourmet food), I recommend Classic Diner in Frazer, which is about a 15 min drive from KOP.

        The Classic Diner is great

          Couldn't agree more, the Classic Diner serves the best breakfast diner food in the area. The best cheapest breakfast diner is just down 30, the Frazier diner.

          Nudys is also very good.

            I prefer King's street cafe (across from the Frazer Diner) to Nudy's.

        Try deeg's on germantown pike. It's right over the collegeville bridge at the fork you go to your left. It's on the left hand side and is a house converted into a restaurant. It's small so you might miss it. I go there all the time. A million times better than the collegeville diner

          How is the Collegeville Inn? Haven't been there in years ~ Do they still have like a Brunch Buffet?

            I have not personally tried the CV Inn, mainly because of the horrible reviews I have seen.

              Collegeville Inn has been closed for a couple of years now. They couldn't even auction off the property ( parking lot is on a flood plain).

              How about Gypsie Rose. Up 29 to 113, right turn, just over the creek.

                Gypsy Rose has been closed for months.

            Is Deeg's the "Country" place next to Evansburg Osteria?

              It is and I wholeheartedly agree with the recommendation.

            Nudy's in Phoenixville (Bridge St) I think is your best bet for solid inexpensive.
            Annemaries in Royersford (although check the times, I was there & they stopped at 12)
            Classic Diner is great but a bit pricier & always a line.
            Black Lab & Iron Hill in Phoenixville- Sundays only
            Collegeville has a few diners- but I've only passed them, never eaten there.
            Bookend Cafe & GLodge in Phoenixville(on route 23) are other choices
