Nice quiet place for lunch near Exton/West Chester

I want to take my mom and two other friends out to a nice lunch near Exton/West Chester on Saturday. I called Arianna's Tea Room in WC to make a reservation, but they're closed on Saturdays now.

Where is another quiet, nice place I can take these sweet ladies out to lunch on Saturday? Any suggestions?

  1. The Duling-Kurtz House is known for its staid and comfy atmosphere, a non-adventurous but good quality menu and lack of chain restaurant cacaphony. The Ship Inn is in the same league.


    1. If you like tea rooms, the Lincoln Tea Room is also in West Chester:

      1. My first thought was also Duling-Kurtz. If you're looking for a tea room, there's the Cambridge Tea Room, which is in the shopping center with Calista Grand at Rts. 926 & 202 (across Rt. 926 from the Acme).

        Cambridge Tea Room
        22 E Street Rd, West Chester, PA 19382

          Thanks for the suggestions. We did wind up going to the Lincoln Tea Room and it was wonderful! The ladies loved it. So did I...but truthfully I'd rather have a big steak & a baked potato than the girly tea sandwiches...;-) But for something sweet & special it was great. Thanks for all your help!
