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".

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
