Best of Philly

2012 Restaurant (Suburbs)

Birchrunville Store Cafe

There’s something about going to a place so off the beaten path (in this case, northern Chester County) that your GPS won’t recognize its existence, and so darling and rustic that you actually have to exit the restaurant and stroll across the wooden porch and into the adjacent (functioning) post office in order to use the restroom. These are the things that let you know you’ve found someplace special. Well, that and the fact that you’ll have the best meal you’ve likely eaten in months. Just save room for the warm butterscotch cake.
