You may have heard about the historic Perkasie Carousel at Menlo Park. Well, there’s another carousel in Perkasie—a restaurant carousel.
The building at 1167 Dublin Pike (Rt. 313) in Perkasie has housed a number of restaurants over the years—the Swiss Chalet, a hoagie joint, and the Back to the ‘50’s Diner among others. The latest in this carousel of eateries is the Dam Good Café. Luckily, it looks like the carousel is coming to a standstill.
This new café is a real family venture. Shane Dam is the chef and his wife, Staci, works the front of the house. You’ll even see kids (theirs, I assume) helping out in the dining room. (No, I’m not going to make a joke like “What are those Dam kids doing in here?” I just won’t stoop that low.)
The family aspect comes through in what the Dam Good Café offers.
The menu has a huge variety for everyone in the family to choose: from sandwiches to chili, from pasta to fish tacos, from turkey stuffed peppers to prime rib. The monstrous salad bar offers loads of salad fixings as well.
Come for breakfast and get a fresh breakfast sandwich, pancakes, French toast and more. They even have an omelet station on Saturday mornings.
The family-friendly environment continues with the large kids menu, which includes the usual burger, mac and cheese and pizza. But there’s also grilled chicken with veggies, turkey sandwich and chicken fingers—made from scratch (my son, Jake, loved them). Each comes with a side (chips, fries, fruit, broccoli or green beans) and a drink.
The Dams are dedicated to offering many healthy options on the menu—signature salads and the salad bar, lots of poultry and seafood and vegetarian dishes.
But maybe most attractive to families is the cost of this freshly made food. Simply said, the prices are hard to beat. My family ate dinner there for less than $25. That’s for a Crab Cake Sandwich, Fish Tacos (very tasty) and Jake’s Chicken Fingers. I added a trip to the salad bar for only $1.95, as you can with any meal.
Affordable, fresh, tasty food in a comfortable, family-oriented atmosphere? Sounds good to me. And from the number of cars that I see outside the Dam Good Café, it looks like the Perkasie restaurant carousel has come to a stop.
The Dam Good Café is open Monday-Thursday, 7 am – 9 pm and Friday-Saturday, 7 am – 9:30 pm.
