Come to our oasis at the top of the hill for a warm welcome and a delicious lunch, featuring soups, sandwiches, entrees (usually vegetarian) and delicious desserts. All the food is homemade using organic and biodynamic ingredients. We support local businesses and growers such as Kimberton Coffee Roasters, Sweetwater Bakery and Sankanac CSA. Our recent café renovations include sustainable building practices and geothermal heating and cooling.

The café is run by an able crew of Kimberton Hills residents and managed by Erin Graver, who has many years of experience in creative whole foods cooking.

We welcome groups and encourage you to call ahead to reserve space or ask about the day’s menu. Catering services are also available.

You can reach Erin at the café at 610-935-3599.

The Camphill Cafe is AMAZING!

Please come and check it out. While there, check out the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm on the Campus. The Fruits and Vegetables, (organically grown) are AMAZING!

What Acres of Diamonds we all have in our backyard.

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

---
Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:
