Hi All,

I moved to this area a few weeks ago and pass these two places on my way to work. I can't seem to find a website for either one to see what their menu is like. Do you know anything about either:

Chiccarene's Restaurant, Swamp Pike, Schwenksville, PA
Fruitville Deli/Country Store, Swamp Pike, Schwenksville, PA

Thanks!

    Chiccarine's has been around for years (local Italian fare), but I've never known anyone to ever eat there. Fruitville Deli used to be a quick stop for a sandwich, coffee, etc. Now that all of Limerick has exploded with big & little box stores, Fruitville is suffering.

    Our Place in Gilbertsville is fun and has great food. Don't be put off when you walk in...everyone's very friendly.

      Chiccarine's is a typical red & white checkered table Italian Spaghetti and Seafood joint. I think it's very good for what it is, and was there when there was NOTHING else around. There are some little touches like fresh roasted peppers with the bread and olive oil. I prefer to give my business to the small local guy as long as it's better than average and Chiccarine's fits the bill.

        Thanks so much for the info! I'm probably going to stop in at both of these places very soon. Just wanted to make sure it would be worth my while! Never heard of Our Place..will put that on my list as well! Thanks!
