McMillan's Bakery on Haddon Ave. in New Jersey has the Best Cream Donuts I have tasted

I agree completely with the recc of cream donuts, and they also have a very good orange sponge cake thingie with orange glaze, sort of like a big cupcake but with a glaze instead of icing. Big enough to share ( as are the cream donuts, but who would?). Second the chocolate eclair recc too! Good thing I moved out of collingswood before NONE of my clothes fit!

Tired of same old places in Bucks county

Can second the mention of Charcoal in Yardley - a bit expensive although breakfast and lunch is very reasonably priced. Seasonal menu in the evening always interesting choices. BYO which is great!

Decent Chinese in Northeast?

Looking for fresh, good Chinese food in the northeast.....could just be take-out, or eat in. Doesn't have to be cutting edge, fusion, or anything fancy, just tasty and fresh for a fast lunch or dinner (I often have to eat on the go or pick up on the way home from work at Rhawn and the Boulevard) Help!!

Best Sushi places in Bucks County?

I would second the Charming Garden recc, in the Giant/Kohl's shopping center. Exceptional sushi, creative rolls, I think it's a BYOB too.

Looking for a great BBQ joint in Philadelphia

My husband and I just returned from a trip to the south - making our way through Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina even into Georgia. We used Chowhound as a resource and also asked locals. Must have eaten BBQ at least 12 times on a three week trip, all different styles, and mostly in places that would qualify as "dives" (that's essential, right?). In Philly, we used to like Phoebe's but now we go to Sweet Lucy's, and have for a couple years now, about twice a month. I agree it's not the best we've ever eaten, but it's above average and extremely consistent. I like all their side dishes, homemade and fresh. We usually eat pork ribs or pulled pork or BBQ smoked chicken and it's always juicy and smoky with several choices of sauce. Never tried the beef ribs so I don't know about them. On Fridays they have a respectable BBQ smoked salmon which we often have. The atmosphere is passable, parking easy, bathrooms clean, service fast and pleasant and BYOB. All in all, best BBQ experience in Philly, and actually a sight better than some "authentic" southern BBQ we had on our trip.

Philly-area waterfront restaurants

Charthouse has free valet parking but it's very pricey! Lovely view though and very popular with groups. Dave and Busters has pub type food and not sure there's a view.....just lots of games for kids but I think there are some private rooms too.

Chowish finds in Yardley/Morrisville area?

If you're hankering for Chinese/Japanese, try the Charming Garden in the Kohl's shopping center off Big Oak Road. Not much atmosphere, although not terrible by any means. But both the Chinese and Japanese dishes are fresh hot and delicious. Their sushi is also fresh and excellent, lots of special rolls. I'm fairly sure it's a BYOB.

New Hope / Lambertville Lunch, Dinner, Brunch

I like the old school classic French La Bonne Auberge in New Hope. Lovely but expensive. Food consistently delicious. It's been around since 1972 and my family has celebrated many occasions there and never been disappointed.

Your favorite Wegman's Dessert

The Awesome Chocolate Cake is. . .well... AWESOME, but be sure to let it cool down to room temp before eating it, the icing is much creamier,as it's meant to be served. Also, try the lemon tart from the pastry shop, totally delicious. Finally, the coconut cookies (not exactly shaped like macaroons) from the cookies shop are rich, moist and fabulous.

Best Italian Near(ish) to the Omni Hotel

Has anybody been to either La Verandah or La Vigna lately? Just thinking about the ease of parking.

Best Italian Near(ish) to the Omni Hotel

I am looking for a place to take my ex-boss, who's coming in to visit this Wednesday (Dec 6) from NYC. He's an afficianado of Italian food, and used to the incredible variety and quality of Italian restaurants in NYC. I would like it to be not too loud since we will be catching up on old times. Could be BYOB or not. He can't walk far, so it could be anyplace with fairly easy parking, but not as far as the suburbs. I'm thinking maybe Tre Scalini, but I haven't been there lately. Help!
