Built in 1831, the Spring Mill Cafe began as a general store and post office for the Spring Mill community. In the late 1800's Baron Hill road was a vibrant artistic community with painters, musicians and sculptors. The cafe was opened in 1978 and serves lunch and dinner six days a week and brunch on Sundays. This property is truly a hidden gem in Conshohocken.
The Cafe is just a short distance from the SEPTA spring mill station, or AYC Media HQ in the Spring Mill Corporate Center.
Careful crossing the mighty Spring Mill River.
Historic buildings dot the countryside.
This way to the Cafe.
Kicking things off with fresh rolls (still warm) and butter!
The kale salad with squash croutons was crisp refreshing and delicious.
Next things next...
The golden beet soup was complemented nicely with the fall foliage just outside the window. Served piping hot with fresh black pepper. It was rich and creamy and surprisingly filling. Would absolutely order again!
As I reflect on my locally sourced and carefully curated fare, I realize how fortunate we are to have this establishment in such a close proximity.
Stay tuned for part two!
