It’s Friday night, and you want a drink. Not a beer; a crisp, refreshing drink with plenty of ice and lots of flavor. Muddled fruits, fresh herbs, local and regional spirits — there’s nothing like a summer cocktail.
Local restaurants sent us their favorite seasonal cocktails, recipes included! You can easily pick up the ingredients and […]
Fortunately, Bucks County has so many great brunch options. Go explore! And if we’ve missed one of your favorites, please let […]
Note: We update this list every year, but if we’ve missed your favorite ice cream stand, do let us know.
Everyone has their favorite ice cream place. Usually it’s local, and maybe because it’s associated with sweetness and warm summer evenings, people tend to be fiercely loyal.
That’s why we are not going to […]
Four years ago I published a short post about waterside restaurants. It was based on a Zagat piece that culled from their readers the top ten waterside restaurants in the Philadelphia area. Four of them were in Bucks and one was in Hunterdon.
But, boy, did they miss a few. I guess Zagat readers don’t […]
Every dark cloud has a silver lining, no? Cliché, I know, but when I heard that Bitter Bob’s in New Hope closed in December 2016, I was sad as I often am when I see a local place shut its doors.
But here’s the good news. Barbecue has returned to New Hope in the same location. […]
It’s one of those places that everyone knows. It has been there forever, with many owners and incarnations over the years. So it’s sad when it lies neglected and empty.
Bill Haas couldn’t agree more. That’s why he jumped at the chance to renovate and restore the Water Wheel Tavern on Old Easton Road, just […]
What does whiskey have to do with local farming?
Ask Laura Fields, founder of the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation, and she’ll tell you. “American whiskey needs American farmers and vice versa,” she explains. “Bourbon is liquid national pride.”
Laura began the foundation to promote the role and history of local small farming, and to bring […]

One wintry Tuesday many years ago I walked into a Yum-Yum Bake Shop for my morning coffee and sour cream donut. On the door was a sign, “Donut Day.” Cynically I thought, “Another made-up holiday, probably created by the National Association of Donut Bakers.”
At the time I was working […]
It all began with an innocent question. “I’m new to the area. Where is good for Mexican food?”
It popped up on the Doylestown Facebook page last February and within an hour there must have been three dozen replies (for the full thread, click here). I love Mexican food so it […]
Yes, Valentine’s Day is around the corner so my mind is on sweets (and why not?). This week our social media fans had to pick their favorite local food photo. Here were the choices:
Openings, moves, rebirths and “gastrogestations.” So much happening on the food scene in Bucks County and across the river in New Jersey.
The Doylestown Brewing Company has lots going on. The brewery, which began in a small space in the Main Street Marketplace, is growing by leaps and…hops?
Every week we ask our social media peeps to choose their favorite local food photo. It’s not easy! Here were the choices this week:
In case you have no idea of what I’m talking about, allow me to explain.
Drive by Bowman’s Tavern, just south of New Hope on River Road, on almost any night of the week, and you’ll see a full parking lot. You’ll also see smiling people coming out.
What’s the secret to their success? Quality food, a varied and interesting menu— including creative daily specials—and consistency. Bowman’s […]
