Cocktails near Doylestown?
We are going to Fordhook Farm (Doylestown) Saturday for the open house/garden and thinking about a cocktail and maybe a snack before we leave our friends and head in opposite directions (Phila and Bethlehem). Any ideas?
Here are a few suggestions:
M.O.M's on Main - Victorian decore, interesting food with a creole touch, they do have sidewalk tables if you want to sit outside. Good liquor selection. http:// www.momsmaxwellsonmain.com/ Main street in Doylestown
Slate Bleu - Located in the agriculture works with plenty of parking French continental food. They have a bar, and a bar menu (things like country pate, onion soup steak tartare etc.) and a nice wine selection I have never ordered cocktails there so do not know their prowess. Just off mainstreet in doylestown. www.slatebleu.com
Heart of Oak Pub corner of 202 and 413. Five minute drive from downtown doylestown. It is an english style pub, but their menu also includes italian items from Baci, the northern italian restaurant upstairs. Standard beer selection, and competent bartenders. www.baciristorante.com
TJ Smiths (just south of town on 611) makes flatbreads, salads etc, and has a nice outdoor patio to sit on. www.tjsmiths.com
The last is a suggestion only if you want to have really interesting drinks, and you would need to call and make reservations-- they are small and sell out on weekend. Honey is a great restaurant in Doylestown, and they also make really interesting cocktails. Its a small plate restaurant, so if you went right when they opened, perhaps you could have a drink and a few small plates Take a look at their menu www.honeyrestaurant.com if this sounds interesting.
Other options include: Knight House, Chambers/the Otherside, Penn Tavern (nice outdoor garden), Paganini wine bar, Stefanies, Mesquito Grill (known for their wings.) These are all in the middle of doylestown within two blocks of each other.
Hope you have a great day and would love to hear wher
Thanks cwdonald and crazyspice! We ended up at M.O.M.'s which was nice - very easy to get to, good snacks and drinks - nothing inspirational but nicely prepared (I have to admit we ordered a second plate of fried pickles - guilty pleasure) and the service was attentive. Fit the bill for a casual place to catch up over a drink or two. We actually talked about wanting to try Honey and just enjoying Doylestown - it might be a place we meet up in the future with these friends!
