The Buckeye Tavern

The Buckeye Tavern

by Cathy Kiley photos by Ryan Hulvat The Buckeye Tavern is the epitome of a local gathering place. It’s lively, friendly and crowded with a menu offering a cornucopia of snacks to full course meals. The Buckeye Tavern has existed on this site in some form since 1735. It was purchased in 1768 by Martin Speigle who paid a little more than ten pounds for the place. During the... »

Spinnerstown Hotel

Spinnerstown Hotel

By Cathy Kiley I have for the last few editions been given the opportunity to explore restaurants, cafes and pubs outside the culinary “hubs” of the Lehigh Valley. It’s been an enlightening and totally enjoyable experience for me. Too often we get stuck in a rut with regard to where we regularly dine for many reasons, not the least of them being that a bit of a longer driv... »

McCoole's at the Historic Red Lion Inn

By Cathy Kiley Photo by Ryan Hulvat I have been looking for a great place to meet in the Quakertown area ever since my daughter and her family moved to the Philadelphia suburbs last year. Well, I finally found a restaurant that fits the bill. Not only does McCoole’s present an appealing ambience but it offers an eclectic menu of wonderfully prepared food to make everyone i... »

BeanBath Café

Just passed Southmoore Golf Club, this upscale coffee shop offers fantastic views from its corner location in the plaza and even more fantastic aromas as you walk through its doors.This family-owned and operated cafe has been serving up delicious food and freshly-brewed ... »

Vintage Restaurant & Bar

By Cathy Kiley Photo by Ryan Hulvat It seems like only yesterday that I first met Mike and Rebecca Pichetto. It was back in 2007 when Vintage was only open a couple of years. At that time, they were together but not yet married and partners in a business that even back then was very successful. Now, in addition to a growing business, they have a growing family and it could... »

Leaf Restaurant Cigar Bar & Lounge

By Cathy Kiley Located off the beaten path in Forks Industrial Park is Leaf Restaurant Cigar Bar & Lounge. This very unique eatery is the new offshoot of The Famous Smoke Shop, a mail order cigar business and retail store/lounge operating in this location since 2000. I was aware that the Famous Smoke Shop Lounge has catered for years to the cigar aficionado and allows ... »

The Mint Gastropub

By Cathy Kiley When Chef/Owner Domenic Lombardo (aka Chef Mimmo) opened The Mint 15 months ago, he and his staff brought bustling new life to the former Bank of America building on West Broad Street in Bethlehem. I’m not sure the term “bustling” is sufficient to describe the bold atmosphere of this vibrant eatery. The retro décor, including brightly colored furniture, shin... »

Henry's Salt of the Sea

By Cathy Kiley Photo by Ryan Hulvat I know very few people in the Lehigh Valley who haven’t been to Henry’s Salt of the Sea.  It’s been there for decades yet one could easily miss it when traveling on Allen Street if you weren’t looking for it. The humble wooden façade boasts a modest sign and two ship’s lanterns lighting the entrance to the cavernous interior that is Henr... »
