I totally agree. The food is excellent, though the portions can be lean. But the service is an embarrassment!!! Rude, sloppy dress on waitstaff, improper etiquette and long waits for creamer, lemon, napkins, etc.

Coneheads ( Ambler ) now Sweet Briar Cafe

A new owner Jeannette has purchased Coneheads and is transforming it into the Sweet Briar Cafe. She plans to make it slightly more upscale--artisan breads, soups, higher prices and maybe BYOB. I hope she catches on that what makes Coneheads so likeable is the cheap, down-home, diner food. Glad to see someone caring about it, but hoping the changes are minimal. BYOB just doesnt sound like a place little league-ers go after the game. Best wishes, Jeannette, but dont get crazy with the prices. Coneheads was all about small town life, not trendy dining.

Ambler Donut Company???!!

LOVE Ambler Donuts. I agree, AmblerGirl, . . . they are making a great effort for a new business venture. I love the blueberry pie--def. my favorite. I have also been pleased with their coffee, which is offered just ask you like it (for me, Splenda with whole milk and a splash of vanilla). The services has always been quite pleasant.

What happened to Cafe Alessio of Warrington?

Cafe Alessio is NOT the same restaurant as the Doylestown location . . . they were owned by the same landlord, but managed by totally different proprietors. I spoke with staff at the Doylestown location last evening.

What happened to Cafe Alessio of Warrington?

My husband and I were crushed to discover the restaurant closed with a sad hand-written note that it was closed due to circumstances beyond their control . . . .have they moved elsewhere????

Ambler-- going into the old beer distributor building (239 E. Butler Pike)

Anyone know what is going into the old beer distributor building near Kropt Motors (which is becoming a Bottom Dollar Food store in spring 2012)? I see signs on the brick building, but the artistic rendering makes the sign impossible to read.
