This is nice and all, but what would be really great is a train right through Phoenixville. Getting to Philly could be a lot easier than taking a long bus ride to a train long train ride. -sigh- Maybe someday.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

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.
