Restaurant Review for Nudy’s Café Lunch 12-17
Location: The Village at Painter’s Crossing, Rtes 202 and 1, Chadds Ford, PA
Manager: Corey Thorius
Ambiance: This former Friendly’s Restaurant is clean, sharp, and yet warm with nice lighting, roomy booths, tables for four, and a patio which will be very suitable for outdoor dining in warmer weather.
Service: The service was first-class, quick and attentive, by a very smiling waitress named Judy.
Experience: We had very good bowls of New England clam chowder, giant size. I added a half sandwich of chicken salad which again was quite large, served with tomato and lettuce, pickle spear and chips. The chicken salad was too bland for me, but I am the type who puts stuff like Major Grey’s chutney, curry, almonds, grapes, etc. in my chicken salad when I make it. Bland is not a word I identify with. In their defense, I noticed they have a Granny Smith apple, raisins and pecan chicken salad, which would have been more interesting to me if I could have substituted for the plainer choice—but I didn’t ask.
Menu: Their menu is quite extensive and has many unique offerings for eggs Benedict varieties, such as lobster benedict, crab benedict, and eggs Florentine benedict. They also do lox and bagel with all the trimmings, always a breakfast plus for me. They make big and hearty burgers, a great variety of sandwiches, salads and wraps, and a hearty bowl of soup for $3.50. Some of the sandwiches sound really tantalizing. I did not see any mention of desserts on the menu, but sometimes it’s good to have temptation removed.
Total Bill: The soup and ½ sandwich selection was $9.99; our total bill was $23.61 plus tip.
Additional Comments: This can be a nice place to go, with probably no waiting line at least for now. It is a welcome addition for a good place for lunch and breakfast especially.
