At a time when local independently-owned bookstores are disappearing, I want to like Reader's Forum. I haven't really cared for their selection, but they are happy to order anything to the store and prices are competitive with the big chains.
Parking is absolutely do-able, though people still complain (you don't even have to parallel park, c'mon, people! You can afford the quarter!)
Worth a look - we should all try to patronize locally-owned businesses, especially bookstores. Service is personal, prompt, and eager to please - this goes a long way in my book.
Gorgeous selection of a vast variety of things from the precious to the interestingly everyday. The owner is present, pleasant and attentive as needed. Musical instruments, tea pots, rugs, lights; many items are hand-made or made with recycled materials.
Delicious dinner - a bit expensive, but every single detail was well executed. Perfect, non-intrusive service with thorough command of menu & accommodating special diet needs. Sleek, stylish dining room. Flavors, textures fresh and correctly rendered. Attractive plating. Good wine list and appealing wines by the glass. Wine order arrived at correct temperature in appropriate glassware.
Driveway access & the parking arrangement was incredibly poorly designed/not user-friendly.
Fellini's is okay if you want an big, affordable plate of so-so pasta and either don't cook or don't feel like it that night. It's not terrible, but it's not terribly well-executed, either.
Really nice energy - this clean, small, attractively decorated & lighted cafe is close to the Berwyn train station. They have ample off-street parking, good food, reasonable prices and use locally-roasted beans.
My husband's favorite menswear shop. He likes the quality selection and loves the personal relationship with the owner. It's hard to find a good indie stores with smart, individual attention from the boss that isn't frighteningly expensive couture.
Do you hate shopping for clothes (or does the man in your life)? Do you need someone with a good set of eyes for flattering styles? Does fluorescent lighting Christmas music in October set your teeth on edge? If so, this is your place.
Wayne Sporting has an incredible selection of sports gear for kids & adults. It's surprisingly well-priced and customer service is usually top-notch.
If you don't know exactly what you want, chances are a store employee can provide meaningful guidance regarding fit, function, durability, or what the school/coach recommends (or requires!). There's a reason *everyone* goes to Wayne Sporting Goods.
They also have a range of stylish women's clothing and that are quite nice (even if you're not a jock!). Sunglasses in particular are a great item to seek out if you want serious eye protection at down-to-earth prices.
Good place to go if you're avoiding a crowd. Mezzo-mezzo coffee, food, slow service, out of many things. Seems like they stopped paying attention a long time ago. Which is a shame, because the location is excellent and the name amuses me.
The worst dry cleaner I have ever patronized. Unremarkable pricing, ironing, cleaning - but if there's a customer service problem, watch out.
They shrunk a shirt and then not only refused to pay for it, they also denied responsibility for the shrinkage and *accused*us* of shrinking a (dry-clean only) shirt in the wash ourselves. Not cool, Rosemont Dry Cleaners.
How many other dry cleaners are there in your zip code? A lot, as it turns out; all far better than dishonest, shoddy Rosemont Cleaners.
I love this place - VERY family-friendly, very cheap & very good. You can prowl for an hour in the grocery store and feel like you've left the country. The restaurant food is not for gringos. I try to order something new every time. Plenty of non-spicy options if you (or your children) prefer.
It's a bit rough around the edges, but if you are more into the food than the fanciness, this is your kind of place. They do not serve alcohol. Delicious Mexican popsicles & sodas, some of which are all natural.
