Coming Soon in Mont Clare off Rte 29!

In late September 2021, the owners of Phoenixville’s Steel City Coffeehouse & Brewery bought a Mont Clare sandwich shop, the former Eagles Nest Deli.

The husband and wife team of Laura Vernola and Ed Simpson plan to continue their success with a grab & go concept deli in their hometown of Mont Clare, Montgomery County, just over the bridge from Phoenixville.

Mont Clare Deli & Market is looking to open winter of 2021 in Mont Clare!

While continuing the past owners’ traditions of hoagies, zeps, slaw, pickled eggs, grilled long hots, tuna, and chicken salad and soups, Laura and Ed plan to add in a full kitchen for cheesesteaks and grab & go prepared meals like eggplant parmesan, meatballs, and chicken cutlets, as well as adding in ice cream during the warmer seasons. 

Laura and Ed are also Mont Clare, PA residents.

Laura says: “We are excited to represent the Village of Mont Clare, as it sometimes gets overlooked because it is so small. Our hope is people will stop by, take in our small village and get to know us.”

Simpson says: “Our goal is to open by mid-November, as long as our permit approvals, contractors, and equipment needs are met. We are anxious to get open and share our family traditions.”

EllieMAC Designs is stepping in to help with design and signage. Ellie has done the work of the beautiful mural at Steel City Coffeehouse & Brewery during the pandemic. Ellie’s mural really captures the beauty and culture of Phoenixville.

The deliwill be serving the classic “Eagles Nest” sandwiches and zeps.

They plan to add in cheesesteaks, grab & go prepared foods, a bigger breakfast and coffee selection, pastry as well as a smoker, and outdoor seating in the spring of 2022. Vegan and gluten-free options will be available. 

Mont Clare Deli & Market will be open 7 days a week for dine-in, takeout, curbside, and delivery. Follow the new location on Facebook and Instagram. The deli is located on Route 29 at 500 Bridge Street in Mont Clare.
