Going out and finally shopping again? Head to the Philadelphia Premium Outlets (located at 18 W Lightcap Road in Pottstown), where you can window shop in the open air and check out the latest fall fashions and trends, and daresay, window shopping for the holidays? But you must fuel up first!*
Start with breakfast at the Limerick Diner (411 West Ridge Pike in Limerick) for a plate of all-American diner grub. Wraps, omelets, pancakes and more, you’ll have a wide range of variety to fill up.
Really feeling hungry? You must go to Annamarie’s in Royersford as you start you day of shopping. Creative, delicious egg dishes and huge pancakes grace the menu of Annamarie’s Place (located at 347 Main Street), where you won’t go hungry, in fact, you’ll probably need a to-go box while you peruse the lunch and dinner menus. Unfussy and hearty fare to fill you up.
JC’s Three Square Meals (1810 E Ridge Pike in Royersford) also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a fun setting, so you’ll have your bases covered with yummy American fare.
Found the latest deals and spent a little money? Good! Now…Snacktime! The Philadelphia Premium Outlets host a nice array of snacks like Auntie Anne’s pretzels and Go Popcorn, Lindt Chocolates, and Starbucks coffees to enjoy while you shop.
Ready for dinner? Looking for some fine beers and ales to go with your chef-inspired meal? Head out to the Craft Ale House (708 W Ridge Pike in Limerick) after a hard day of shopping to wind down your day. Try their latest—Haymaker Meadery’s Harvest Mead with honey, rosemary, and cranberries—along with specials like Black Truffle Mac n Cheese or Herb-crusted Rack of Lamb, mussels, pizzas, or sandwiches.
Still hungry? Truck on down to the Railroad Street Bar & Grill (36 Railroad Street in Linfield) Enjoy a vast array of beverages at this beer destination, while choosing from excellent appetizers like Hop Bites, Railroad Chili, wings, or the Lobster Fries or the Tomato Jam Fries. Entrees include gourmet burgers, fresh salads, savory pizzas, or try one of the grilled cheese entrees, like the lobster grilled cheese. Plus, check out PinCrossing, an entire room with a dozen pinball machines!
Got a little more time on your hands after shopping? Check out OORI, (located at 2228 Pottstown Pike in Pottstown) for great Korean dishes. Try the Korean Fried Chicken, Bulgogi Lettuce Wraps, Dan Dan Noodles, or the specials like the Gem Salad with toasted pumpkin seeds drizzled with a pumpkin apple cider dressing or the Jap Chae with sweet potato noodles, fresh shrimp, and bell peppers and red onion.
No matter what you are in the mood for, the restaurants around the Philadelphia Premium Outlets offer premium tastes in Montgomery County.
