Chocolate covered spice cupcakes

Thanks. We used to get them at the Bredenbeck's on Frankford Ave (among other places). I had no idea what they might be called.

Chocolate covered spice cupcakes

Does anyone know of a bakery in Philadelphia that still sells chocolate covered spice cupcakes? My dad used to buy them for us from local (German?) bakeries when I was growing up in the 70s and 80s. The last time I found them was at Rindelaub's before they closed. I'd try to make them, but I'm not sure where to begin with the recipe. They weren't just spice cake with frosting slapped on; that would be too easy.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Suggestions for group of 25 near Ambler, PA

Thanks, I will also check out Mirna's. I read (possibly here?) that the Jenkintown location is nicer than the Blue Bell location. Do you know anything about that?

Thanks. Is this the space that used to be the lower-scale Mexican place (not Cava)? What is the food like? I can make a trip there for a taste test, but it's about 45 minutes away and I want to do due diligence first.

Suggestions for a party of 25 in the NE

Thanks. I love Moonstruck, but they may not have an opening that evening. Perhaps I could convince some people not to come so that we could fit into a smaller space. Wishful thinking.

Suggestions for a party of 25 in the NE

Are there any nice (non-chain) restaurants in the NE that would be able to accommodate a party of about 25? I have already looked into Moonstruck, but that's the only place I can think of that's both "upscale" and large. I feel like I must be missing something.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Suggestions for group of 25 near Ambler, PA

I am looking for a moderately priced restaurant in Montgomery County (Ambler, Blue Bell, Jenkintown, Skippack, or thereabouts) that would have space for a sit-down party of about 25 people. A BYO would be fantastic, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Lunch in NE Philadelphia

Thanks for all of the suggestions. I wish the Dining Car were closer; I used to enjoy going there when I lived in the neighborhood. I also have fond childhood memories of the Country Club, but heard that the quality had decreased dramatically in recent years.

I'll only have an hour, so I'm not sure what I'll do. I may try Miller's to begin with, since it seems close.

Lunch in NE Philadelphia

Thanks, but I've been there and can't can't say I'm a fan. I was hoping that wasn't my only option. Is there a diner around (not owned by Michaels)? I know there are a couple on Frankford Ave, which is bit out of my way, but not impossibly so.

Lunch in NE Philadelphia

Can anyone suggest a decent place for lunch in NE Philadelphia (in the area of Nazareth Hospital -- Holme Ave & the Blvd)? I'm unfamiliar with the area, but will be up there once a week for the next couple of months. I'd prefer not to starve!

Thanks.
