“The Great Thaw” was nice while it lasted (how is 60 degrees for some “winter weather?”) but now it’s back to chilly mornings and the possibility of another batch of snow showers?! Ugh. Well, keep reading, this guide is better than any weather report you’ll read this week.

Smoke On The Water Dinner

We always say you don’t have to travel to big cities to find big city cuisine. Bucks County is a unique and hip spot, filled with up-and-coming chefs, restaurants and cafes. Here’s what we gathered up for the start of 2018, including new beginnings, and fresh, local food.

Friends for years, these three women opened Clean Roots in May 2017 with resounding success from their community. Clean Roots, a 100% vegetarian restaurant with many vegan options, shows their customers that vegetarian and vegan food can be made without compromising flavor, creativity, or cost.

They welcome all foodies and eaters — you don’t have to be a vegan/vegetarian to enjoy some of their delicious, wholesome and clean comfort food. Keep reading for our feature on the new vegetarian restaurant here.
