Drafting Room Brunch

Has anyone ever been to the Drafting Room in Springhouse for Brunch? Feedback please? Is there anywhere decent for brunch in the area?

    Brunch at the Drafting Room is fine. I personally don't go to buffets that often as I end up eating way too much, but there is a nice variety there.

    A little while back I met a friend at Zake's Cakes in Ft. Washington for brunch, and it was fabulous! We needed something in between Philly and Lansdale on the R5, and it was a perfect choice. The food is always excellent there, and the prices very reasonable. I had pancakes with raspberry and lemon that were delicious. It's also a great lunch spot. (I've never been for dinner, but at least earlier in the summer they were advertising an early/mid-week prix fixe.)

      Thank you! I have to remember to check back after I post! I've had breakfast at Zake's, but never brunch. It is very tight in there and I thoght my omlette was just OK, but everyone else loves it! I guess I should give it another shot sometime.

      I'm not a big fan of buffets either, but I am so frustrated by the lack of bruch option sin our area!!

        When did sin become optional at brunch? ;-))

          While it is a buffet, how about the William Penn Inn for brunch? Was there once and was very satisfied.

            I'm not much of a fan of the William Penn Inn. However, I agree with mitchh, the brunch buffet is pretty good.

              That was actually what started my quest. The William Penn Inn was THE ONLY brunch anyone in my area recommended! I really wish Alison Two would serve brunch. I'm really shocked she doesn't! I'm sure her bloody marys would be "sin"ful!

                I haven't been there, but what about Zake's Cake, just around the corner from Alison Two?

        Jim Coleman's Normandy Farms in Blue Bell has one of the best brunches that I have
        ever been to.

          We went to Coleman's a couple of times and the service was deplorable!
