5 Breakfast Meccas In And Around West Chester

5 Breakfast Meccas In And Around West Chester

Get Ready to Get Hungry

There are many hot breakfast spots throughout Chester County. Each one with its appeals and downsides. This list will highlight the best (in my opinion) that you can find in your own backyard of West Chester and it's surrounding areas. Hopefully, this inspires some weekend plans.

1. Wawa

Wawa is a treat that very few can enjoy. It boasts delicious, quick, and pocket-friendly options for people of all walks of life. They also have a great selection of food, beverages, and snacks to choose from. If you're in a rush, you can expect the quickest and friendliest service. Another benefit is the free/ $1 coffee days, sizzli specials, and hoagiefest. Some negatives, however, is there is no outdoor seating so you must eat in your car. It can also get really crowded in the morning.

2. Nudy's Cafe

Nudy's is located near the bus station and the courthouse in town, so if you don't have a car it's no problem to get to this location. It's also not that far from West Chester University and can be accessed by bus or by walking. The location is quaint, and the service is quick with polite employees. Great for Breakfast or Brunch with a group of friends. Some negatives are the small parking lot for those who have to drive and the food is a bit bland for my taste. However, do not let that deter you from trying them out. Everyone's tastes are different. They also have many other locations throughout the county.

3. Downingtown Diner

A town classic and the home of the Blob, this little slice of cinematic history serves breakfast 24 hours a day 7 days a week. So whether breakfast is at 8 am or 8 pm, you can expect to get a short stack of platter sized flapjacks. The food is flavorful and the atmosphere is fun and friendly. This location is great for everyone. Some negatives are that parking is minimal, and it can get very crowded on weekends. Especially right after Church on Sunday.

4. 7/11

You wouldn't expect 7/11 to be among the best places for breakfast, but I assure you I can vouch for this one. The 7/11 in Exton, PA saved my ass on numerous occasions when I had to be up at the crack of dawn to catch my bus to work at the mall. It was a safe place to walk to, to get my morning cup of joe, and the breakfast sandwiches were surprisingly tasty. Add to that, the friendly staff who always asked me about my day and how I was doing. Some downsides, however, was the limited breakfast food selection and no established eating area.

5. Shady Maple Smorgasbord

The last location is more of a destination spot. Shady Maple is in the heart of Lancaster County surrounded by some of the activities mentioned in my fall activities article. So why not make a weekend of it with a trip to the biggest buffet you have ever seen. The buffet boasts an array of options, all equally tasty, and you can eat till you drop with the flat rate entrance fee and unlimited self-serve. Also if you have a huge group, they can probably seat you. I've seen a group of 30+ get seated. However, don't count on getting seated with a group that large if you come late. They don't have all the dining rooms open for breakfast.

Also, keep in mind, if you have a large group it can get really expensive, and if you get there late they may not be able to seat everyone in your party together at one table due to space. Also, keep in mind that the buffet area can be really hard to navigate at times. Take two trips if you need to to get food and drink.

I hope you enjoyed this list of the best breakfast eateries in and around West Chester. Maybe you could try one this week or this weekend. Tell me what you thought in the comments.

11 of the Most Annoying Starbucks Orders

I know we all have our own opinions, but come on.

When people find out I work at Starbucks, the first thing they say is, "is it hard memorizing all the drinks?" In all honesty, it really isn't all that bad. Until these people come along. There's being high maintenance and then there's being unnecessarily annoying. These people are the latter. Some of these drinks are extremely time consuming to make, and some are just plain weird.

1. A Frappuccino with no ice

Excuse me, what?

2. A “nonfat, iced skinny mocha with light ice, whipped cream, and chocolate drizzle”

Okay, a.) nonfat comes in the ‘skinny’ description, and b.) this definitely isn’t skinny anymore. But you do you.

3. A Berry Hibiscus Refresher “shaken with berries, but no berries in the drink itself”

So you just want the drink to turn pink?

4. A “half caramel, half vanilla latte, decaf espresso heated only to 100° with nonfat milk and caramel drizzle on top”

This one is just a mouthful…

5. Upside down Macchiato

So a latte? You’re asking for a latte…?

6. Black Iced Tea *steamed* with 10 sweeteners that are not Splenda

Seriously? Just get hot black tea!

7. A “vanilla coconut milk cappuccino with no foam and whipped cream”

A cappuccino is just espresso and foam! What do you mean ‘no foam’?!

8. Layers of whipped cream with caramel and mocha drizzle between each layer

This is a coffee shop…at least get a drink.

9. A skinny vanilla latte steamed to exactly 137°

Can you honestly tell the difference between 137 and 140°?

10. A Java Chip Frappuccino with no chips

So... a mocha frapp?

11. A “venti matcha green tea Frappuccino made with soy milk, chips, and peppermint”

I’m sure this drink is actually really good, but it sure is annoying to make.

Customizing your order at Starbucks is not a big deal. Make it your own. Just don't be the a**hole that wants their milk steamed to 137 degrees.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
