Whenever I have an occasion which requires a greeting card and small gift, I always check here first. They have a very large selection of cards. You can also find some unique gifts, but my favorite reason to go here is the candy. They have a variety of delicious chocolates. So while I am buying a gift for a friend, I can treat myself, too! Prices are pretty reasonable.
I can tell you that this is a beautiful, well maintained retirement community. They have various levels of care available from cottages for independent living to assisted living apartments to 24 hour a day nursing care. My stepfather went to their adult day care program for several years. They took excellent care of him. The staff treated him just like a member of their own family. You never had to worry when he was there because you knew he was in good hands.
This is a nice nursery. It has a fairly large variety of plants and gardening supplies. The plants are well maintained and are in good condition when you purchase them. Staff is usually pretty helpful. The prices seem reasonable to me. I love to see all the beautiful mums and unique pumpkins they have available in the fall.
I have been to a few musicals at Three Little Bakers. The quality of the actors is very good and the productions have been professionally presented. This is a nice night out. You can have dinner and a show all in one place and not have to spend time driving from place to place. They offer a delicious buffet. The desserts are awesome. The atmosphere is good; however, I find the tables to be a little too close for my comfort level. Despite this, I enjoy myself each and every time I go.
PROS: Professional productions, good actors
CONS: Dining tables are a little too close to each other
I have been a member of Citadel Federal Credit Union since I was 12 years old. It is a great financial institution. The customer service level is outstanding. No matter what your financial needs from a mortgage to planning for retirement, they have a specialist to help you. They have a number of branches in the area, but my favorite is this branch at Chester Springs. I found the tellers here to be exceptionally friendly and the financial advisors to be extra helpful.
PROS: Excellent customer service, professional financial advise
CONS: Recently instituted monthly checking account fees
If you want some truly delicious southern style bbq, then this is the place to go. I have tried everything from the bbq pork sandwiches to the bbq ribs. I have enjoyed everything with the exception of the fries. I find them to be a little too greasy, but I can highly recommend the rest of the menu. The ribs just melt in your mouth. I think the prices are quite reasonable. I usually get take-out orders but they do have a small dining area with booths.
PROS: Delicious ribs, bbq sandwiches, reasonable prices
CONS: Greasy fries
I stayed at Ashlea Gardens before I was married. As a single woman, living alone, I always felt safe and comfortable here. Each apartment offers a stackable washer/dryer, dishwasher, and its own private balcony. The grounds and apartments are well maintained. The staff is willing to promptly help you with any issues that may come up. The apartments are located in the heart of PA dutch country with access to so many wonderful experiences.
I have stayed at a lot of b&bs and this one is by far my very favorite. There are rooms in the main house as well as an additional house and a private carriage house. All the rooms are beautifully decorated. The room I stayed in had a fireplace. It was a lovely, comfortable room. I felt like a queen for a few days. The owners are available to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They are very friendly people. My favorite part of the stay was definitely the gourmet meals I was served in the spacious dining room. The chef is excellent. These were some of the best meals I have ever eaten. I didn't want to leave when my stay was up and I keep dreaming about going back someday soon! Prices vary according to which room and meal plan you choose. For the caliber of food and accomadations, I think it is well worth the price.
I have purchased fruits and vegetables at this store on occasion; however, I found their prices to be higher than I pay at other fruit stands. The quality of the fruits and vegetables is good but not worth the extra expense for me. I do like to browse inside their store. They sell some unique gourmet food items and I treat myself to something every now and then. You will want to try the apple cider slushey in the fall. This is a very tasty treat. They do allow you to pick your own apples in their orchard. I have never done this but it could be a fun idea for a family outing.
PROS: Unique gourmet food items, nice quality fruits & vegetables
CONS: A little pricey for me
These cakes are delicious! We have purchased them for work birthday celebrations for many years. The cakes are moist, fillings are delicious and the icings are just right. You couldn't ask for a more beautifully decorated cake. It always makes me feel special when I receive one of these cakes on my birthday. They have several varieties of cakes, icings and fillings to choose from - I have not found one I did not like yet! Prices are reasonable.
