They had a soft opening last Saturday (1.24) and some friends and I stopped in after dinner for some cookies and coffee. The owners are extremely nice and the cookies were DELICIOUS!! All the best to them, we'll definitely go back!!

Does anyone know if I can order already baked cookies? If I order 1-dozen pre-portioned cookies online, are they cooked or do I have to bake them? I'd like to get some already baked cookies to take to a party and these sound delicious!

I tried their oatmeal peanut butter cup, and while the cookies are delicious, they are very expensive. I paid $10 for 1 dozen ready-to-bake frozen pre-formed cookies. $10! The 3-pound tub is $22. This makes around 48 cookies. Still very expensive for a cookie.

I don't think you can order baked cookies online but if you call them you can have an order ready to pick up at your convenience. It is true they are expensive but supposedly it is because they use all organic ingredients. And they are still much better than cookies you can get for cheaper.

I think these are a great value for an all-natural cookie. Just look at the list of ingredients!

We also tried their cookies last week and they are amazing. While $10 seems like a lot for a dozen cookies, it's less than a dollar a cookie- Hope's in Rosemont charges more and the cookies aren't nearly as unique. We had an island delight with coconut and lime and they said they zest and squeeze the lime pulp by hand and each cookie is hand-scooped! You can't get cookies like this anywhere else, even in the city. I'm glad they chose Phoenixville!

I had the bubble tea. It was very good. I don't know why the coffee shops around here don't offer it.

The cookies are good but they're too small. If you're going to pay $1 a cookie, your eyes want to see something that says they're worth a dollar. The taste is definitely worth it, but again if they were bigger it'd make more of an impact.

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!

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…
