I am going to be renting a place in Conshohocken and was hoping to get some tips on good eats around town. Any advice on the staples (pizza, coffee, etc) and anything else would be appreciated!
Welcome to Mont Co. You will find a lot of good things around Conshohocken but you will also be only about 20-30 minutes from Center City, (depending on traffic) so you really are well situated to enjoy the greater Philadelphia area.
Some Conshohocken highlights-
Baggataway - local pub/restaurant run by a couple of ex Cornell Lax players. Good beer and burger.
El Limon- locally owned taquiera. Very good inexpensive Mexican Food. BYO.
'Feine - locally owned coffee shop and gallery.
Chiang Mai - Good to very good Thai Restaurant
401 Diner - Diner with organic ingredients , step above the normal diner fare. Good for breakfast.
I am sure others can way in as well. There are some great high end restaurants as well as a pretty lively bar scene in Conshy.
It's been a few years, but we always thought Tony A's Pizza (Ridge Pike) was the best pizza. Tony and Joe's was our second fave and perfectly acceptable. We also second Pepperoncini. For grinders and hoagies, we like Ted's.
Great American Pub is good for what it is, even if we were never blown away (better than Toad's).
A lot of new places opened in the last five years.
These are all based on multiple visits within the last year and were my go-tos for food in Conshy. Most places close by 9 during the week. Search this board for other recommendations.
Conshohocken Italian Bakery for great tomato pie and rolls.
Sandwiches: Ted's and Lenny's Italian Deli both have good Italian hoagies, but the latter also has great roast pork sandwiches. Pete's hoagies are fine.
Pizza: Tony & Joe's for stromboli or a quick slice. Franzone's on Ridge Pike for their sweet-sauced pizza (if you like that style).
El Limon for tacos, burritos, salad with tinga (marinated chicken), any soup special
Isabella happy hour
Deli on Fourth for quick breakfast sandwiches
Conshohocken Cafe for weekend brunch
Blackfish for nicer dinners
