There's a new breakfast and lunch place in town: Café Americana in the Giant shopping center on Scarlett Road. We ate there last Sunday morning and the place was quite busy with families, couples, friends and two women who looked like they'd just finished their barn chores (and were hungry: they ordered creamed chipped beef). The waitresses were cheerful, and we enjoyed a hearty breakfast of eggs and home fries. Cafe Americana is open 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Speaking of breakfast: on Sunday, April 2, the West Grove-Avondale Rotary Club and the Avon Grove Lions Club will be holding their annual pancake breakfast at the Avondale Fire Co. firehouse on Route 41 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Proceeds benefit the Avondale and West Grove fire companies.
