April tidbits: Openings, cornbread pancakes & tacos

What’s happening on the food scene in Bucks County? Here’s the scuttlebutt.

Comfortfood collage

I dropped by ComfortFood & Kitchenette last week for the first time since owner/chef Kim Quay expanded into the storefront next door, adding a beautiful dining room. What a change from when I first interviewed her in 2012 about her catering and takeout business. Kim and her staff serve lunch in the bright, warm café Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 am to 3 pm.

Kim would love to open for dinner but doesn’t have the staffing now (know any cooks who might be interested? Email Kim here.) But every Tuesday is “Tacos & Movie Night” — all-you-can-eat tacos and a movie for $25 per person. The food is served family style, with three kinds of tacos, chips, homemade salsas, and pickled veggies. What fun! Kim picks the movie each week (last week was The Jerk with Steve Martin).

For more information click here and watch Kim’s blog for the coming week’s movie pick. [We are also planning a Bucks County Taste Dinner Club at ComfortFood. Stay tuned. Join the Dinner Club’s email list here.]

Hops grill doylestown brewing co

The Doylestown Brewing Company has opened a second location to enjoy their beer and pub menu in the former Bobby Simone’s restaurant and bar. The Tables & Hops Bar & Grill is now open, including the great patio space in the Market Way. Perfect timing for our beautiful spring weather. The Grill is at 52 East State Street.

Cornbread pancakes at Hickory Kitchen_edit

Delicious barbecue + breakfast = Yum. Hickory Kitchen is now open for breakfast Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 9 am-11:30 am. This makes me very happy, although not any thinner. How about a breakfast wrap with two eggs, pulled pork, BBQ sauce,tomato, onion & Monterey Jack cheese? Or Cinnamon Raisin French Toast? And my favorite, Cornbread Pancakes. So much for my spring diet. See the full menu here.

washington house hotel room

The Washington House in Sellersville known for its dining, and the Sellersville Theatre next door, has just opened a boutique hotel above the restaurant. The hotel has been renovated in a classic, yet modern, style. Proprietors Elayne Brick and William Quigley decided to keep many of the building’s historical features, such as exposed original brick and beams, as accent features throughout the five floor hotel.

The hotel has eleven rooms and suites with private baths, WiFi, cable television, and continental breakfast. Sounds like a great place for a stay-cation!
