Terrapin Cafe and the Green Room Open on Main Street

Reader Pete also wrote in to tell about a new Cafe that is Open on South Main Street. Terrapin Cafe, located at 6 S. Main Street, offers "a unique culinary experience, with traditional favorites, (usually with twist) and lots of new and exciting options."

They also offer catering services through their sister company, The Green Room, which is located at 22 S. Main. For more information, including menus for both the cafe and the catering services, please see their site at terrapincafe.com.

Thanks to Pete for the head's up.

Glad there is a new place in town, but the website is confusing. Are they a restaurant or caterer? If they want foot traffic they need to make their site read more liek that. Plus a contact and directions page woudl be nice. Menu is unique, but they could add some nice "unusual" food too to fill the menu.

You're right, the web site is confusing. I went to the Terrapin Cafe yesterday in the hopes of having a meal w/my wife and kids but learned that they only do take-out.

I still have no idea what purpose the Green Room serves.

They need a better identity. If it's only takeout, call it "Terrapin Take Out Cafe".

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'.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!
