April Food News in the Brandywine Valley

Written by County Lines Magazine

A few of our favorite things to share this month about local food and drink

New Cookie in Town

Viral sensation Crumbl Cookies recently opened two locations in Chester County — at Main Street at Exton and on Wilmington Pike in Glen Mills. The bakery is known for its weekly rotating menu of giant cookies, made from more than 200 unique flavors like Muddy Buddy, Funfetti, Rocky Road and Hazelnut Sea Salt. Order in store or online for pickup or delivery.


Through the Grapevine

Ever wanted to own a winery? Now’s your chance! Award-winning Galer Estate Vineyard and Winery in Kennett Square is up for sale. Owners Lele and Brad Galer are moving on after 15 years and intend to sell to someone who shares their vision of producing high-quality grapes and wine. The 7.5-acre vineyard, winery, house, bed-and-breakfast and dream can be yours for about $3.4 million. 700 Folly Hill Rd., Kennett Square.


Surf and Turf

Good news for local foodies: the historic National Bank of Coatesville building will become an upscale steak and seafood restaurant. 30 Prime Seafood & Chophouse is the latest project from Chef Phil Ferro, owner of Coatesville’s Kings Tavern and Chadds Ford Tavern. Ferro also plans to convert the building’s basement into a banquet hall offering a lunch buffet. Both are slated to open in 2024, once renovations are finished. 112 E. Lincoln Hwy., Coatesville.

Boba Bliss

April 30 marks National Bubble Tea Day, honoring the trendy drink from Taiwan known for its chewy tapioca “bubbles,” also known as boba. Celebrate by ordering from a local tea shop, like Cup of Dreams in Paoli, Cocobear in Pottstown or Kung Fu Tea, with locations in West Chester, Ardmore, Media and more. Customize your drink with different flavors, milk varieties and toppings. And post online, of course.


Feel-Good Food

Keep an eye out for a second Rosalie location coming to Glen Mills. Located in the former Ruby’s Diner at the Shoppes at Brinton Lake, across from White Dog Café (also owned by Fearless Restaurants), it will feature the same Italian soul food from executive chef Merick Devine loved by fans of the Wayne Hotel location. The new Rosalie is expected to open before the end of the year. 919 Baltimore Pk., Glen Mills.
