Sunday Breakfast/Brunch in Willow Grove/Ambler/Blue Bell/Conshy Area

I'm looking for recommendations for a casual, fair-priced place for a ladies-day-out breakfast/brunch on Sunday. Nothing over-the-top, just fresh, tasty food .... with a few originial menu items.

(I absolutely love Sabrina's Cafe in the city, if that gives you an idea of what I am looking for.)

  1. Zake's in Fort Washington (Bethlehem Pike) is pretty good for Sunday brunch. It's a smaller place and feels kind of like a tea party but the food is good. My family tends to gravitate toward Pumpernik's in Montgomeryville but that place is always packed on Sunday morning/early afternoon. The food is great and we love the pickle bar!

      I second Zake's, fabulous brunch. watch out, it gets a little crowded but its really good. also, consider the Spring Mill Inn in conshy or Cake in CHestnut Hill, both fabulous brunch spots.

        Oh yes, thank you! I've been meaning to give Zakes a try. Do you know if they take reservations!

          Zake's does take reservations. If the weather is nice, the newly renovated room in the front would be lovely for you.

    2. If it's not too far I LOVE Cake in Chestnut Hill. The brunch is excellent and so is the atmosphere. Be sure to arrive when they open (I think 10am), if you don't you will wait (think Sabrina's:). If you're thinking mimosa's it's BYO.

      1. Best Brunch I have been to in the area is at Normandy Farms in Blue Bell.
        Great place for special occasions but not inexpensive but well worth it!

        1. You could go to the Spring Mill Cafe. Bring your own champagne to make mimosas.

          1. Thank you so much for all the wonderful suggestions. We went to Zakes Cakes early on Sunday morning and it was absolutely perfect! I had the crab cake eggs benedict and my girlfriend had the breakfast burrito. Both were fresh and flavorful and served with crispy potatoes. Prices and food were outstanding! Service was ok. Could have used some more coffee/tea refills. But, other than that, breakfast was great!
