Chef Henry Morgan, previously of CookNSolo, Michael Solomonov’s famed restaurant group, has opened his first concept, Homeroom, in Gladwyne, reports Michael Klein for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Homeroom is located in the space that was once Green Bean Coffee; this exact place is where he discovered his passion for interacting with customers while working both front and back-of-house roles.

“I’m very excited to be able to do what I love most: make people feel good through food and hospitality, in a space that has such sentimental value to me,” Morgan says. “Reimagining this space in which I worked nearly a decade ago with both Lauren and Melissa feels very full circle. Having the opportunity to once again serve the community that I grew up in means so much, and I am looking forward to helping recapture the bustling energy that Gladwyne Village once thrived on.”

This unique neighborhood lunch café will feature fresh, seasonal menu items, some of which take inspiration from Morgan’s Jewish background and culinary experience, include signatures like an Eggplant Sandwich, Za’atar Chicken Salad Sandwich, Smoked Salmon Toast, and Pistachio Cake, using local ingredients, as well as local home décor and crafts.

The look and feel of the cafe is a collaboration between Morgan, designer Lauren Sara (Morgan’s mother), and designer Melissa Urdang Bodie of Melissa + Miller Interiors.

Along with Lauren Sara’s refined aesthetic and Melissa Urdang Bodie’s extensive interior design experience, they’ve created a transportive yet welcoming destination.

Homeroom is located at 358 Righters Mill Road in Gladwyne, PA.
