If you are like me and absolutely love brunch food, then you have come to the right place. This summer I have visited many different cafes on the main line, and I am going to highlight my favorites for you.

Malvern Buttery

 

Located on the main strip of Malvern, this picturesque cafe is perfect for your next brunch date. The Malvern Buttery is not your typical cafe experience. Upon arrival you pick your food from the buffet, order your drink at the coffee bar, and pay when you leave. The cafe features a day to day food menu of sandwiches, salads, soups, flatbread pizzas, pastries, and a toast bar. Not only does the food look as good as it tastes, but it will be quite a difficult task to choose what to eat. Not only was the food and drinks amazing but the cute, peaceful atmosphere is so welcoming that I will definitely be going back soon.

BRYN and DANES

BRYN and DANES is a healthy fast food restaurant with several locations in south eastern, PA. I decided to head over to the Malvern location which is extremely clean inside, along with a very trendy, calming atmosphere. They offer many healthy food options such as wraps, salads, bowls, quesadillas, smoothies, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and create your own options. Not only is the food delicious but the service is very quick also. In addition to dining in, there is also a drive thru for those who are looking for something easily accessible.
