Lunch/Brunch in Media, PA
We will be in Media from out of town and need to find a place for lunch/brunch prior to a late afternoon wedding on a Sunday. I thought that Azie sounded good. Is it a buffet or do you order? what do most people find to be the best place to eat? We're open to any cuisine at all -- just hoping for good food! I also read about a French-Tha place (La Na?)
any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Azie is not a buffet. During the week, they have a great ($12) lunch - don't know about Sundays.
Stephen's On State and Iron Hill are just ok for lunch, you could dine outside at either.
I do like LaNa for good service and a quiet, enjoyable meal (BYOB) - they also have excellent week day lunch specials.
If you are looking for something more informal, definitely consider the Koffee Korner (diner-like) or House. Also, don't know if they are open on Sunday, but I really love the new Sweet Potato Cafe (Cold Stone Creamery Sign) they have salads, interesting soups and sandwiches and awesome baked goods.
In case it hasn't been said, avoid Brodeurs - it has spotty service, (almost) average food and is over priced, although I must add I haven't heard any feedback about their sunday brunch....
Well, we stepped in Azie and took one look at the buffet and left. It was impressively unimpressive! First of all, there was nothing really asian about it -- eggs, etc. But the food just looked pretty bad. And they said that we could not order off of the menu. So, we went to La Belle Epoque instead and had pretty good crepes.The wedding was at The Old Mill in Media which was a lovely setting.
I live in Media and my top recommendation is actually in Swarthmore, 10 minutes away, at a place called Countryside Market. Wonderful for breakfast/brunch/lunch food. I've heard they sometimes have a wait, tho' we've always been lucky.
Second, there's a good place for brunch in Folsom called Java Joe's.
Right in Media, since you're open to any kind of cuisine, I'd recommend:
Sheree Punjab (Indian and very good, tho' I've never done their buffet food, have only had dinner off the regular menu, so if you go and have the buffet, please report back!)
Nadia's, known by locals as Noodi - Thai, and imho superior food to La Na, tho' La Na is a little more formal
Koffee Korner for brunch food
Iron Hill - if you want an eclectic menu, chain but only in local area, I believe there are 3 or 4 of them total. This is a good place if you're in the mood for a burger, salad, etc.
That is a difficult question to answer.
I'd suggest "House" at 110 S. Jackson Street- great for salads and panini- but I think they may be closed on Sundays- I just called them- recd answering machine but you can try to call on Sunday:
110 S Jackson St
Media, PA 19063
My suggestion is to drive 20-30 minutes to Kennett Square and eat at my favorite restaurant at "Sovana Bistro" - great food and you will not be disappointed.
Otherwise, I heard good things about Azie- but I have never been there. It may be your best bet in Media.
