what should i know about in the telford area?

I just moved to the telford/souderton area not long ago... down the street from hendricks farm (decadent!!).

I have found lots of great stuff so far, and am very familiar with just about everything from philly to lansdale. There have to be some great divey spots around these parts that I haven't discovered yet... recommendations?

Thanks in advance!!

  1. You're in for a treat, or rather a few.
    Vietnam Cafe is wonderful and cheap. Right in Telford near the station.
    Maize in Perkasie is excelent for a little more upscale BYO, locally sourced & creative.
    Arielle's Country Inn on Allentown rd, just north of you, is good. There's more about it on the board if you search.
    Drive over to the other side of Nochamixon for OWowCow ice cream. Stop by on your way to the Ottsville Farmer's market when it starts up, or just pop in for some wonderful small-batch ice cream. Again, locally sourced ingredients and creative flavors.
    If you cook, there are some great CSA's in the area that are worth joining. Otherwise, there are plenty of farmstands that sell about everything under the sun. For Pork, Blooming Glen Pork on 113 if fabulous. For grass-fed Beef, you can get some from Hendrick's or (OK, I'm blanking on the name, but it's across from BG Pork). Also Bolton's Turkey Farm has a great little market with their turkey and fresh produce.
    Bakers on Broad has great bread & pastries. Well worth stopping in on Saturday morning.

    I haven't been able to suss out the divey places quite as well, but the diners are generally well regarded. I'm interested to hear what others have to say.
    OK, I thought of one. The Empanadas place in Quakertown. It's next to Pep's Ice Cream on 313. It's walk-up only, but they're fabulous.

      Live in Perkasie, and work in Souderton. I agree with Blooming Glen Pork, Check them out on Saturdays after Easter for Big Bob's BBQ. Bolton's Turkey is also a great find. Bocchi's Empanada's are to die for, and very inexpensive.

      In Souderton you have the Local at the train station, Great for breakfast or lunch. In Perkasie you have the Perk. In Quakertown you Have Bubba's, great onion soup and burgers.

      Good luck and let us know what else you find.
