Takeout, Delivery and Outdoor Dining Guide

Written by Maria Marabito and Lindsey Miller

Check out your options in Phoenixville, Kennett Square and West Chester. More towns coming soon!


Support local restaurants during this hiatus on dining in by ordering takeout. It’s the best of both worlds—eat amazing food while helping small businesses and their employees. Ordering takeout is very safe (read the NPR report), but if you prefer to help another way, donate money through Chester County’s Virtual Tip Jar, or buy a gift certificate or gift card to use later.

Every bit counts in supporting our community!

Here are some bakeries, cafes, markets and restaurants around town to satisfy your cravings.
