Come here for great Ice Cream. Bring your grandchildren and make your stories of the '50 come alive. Friendly staff and good food. Note that the Post Office address above is a bit misleading. Scoupe De-Ville is in Gibraltar about 3 miles West of Birdsboro on Rt 724. Also near a Thun Trail parking area so it can be a destination after a warm day of biking. Should note that they close during mid winter

Friday night for dinner around 6pm. This used to be a typical meat and potatoes restaurant with homestyle cooking. Apparently the chef or owner has been watching the food channel. The menu is totally changed and dishes are now trying to be upscale. At least the prices have made that journey. More main line Philly than an old country hotel. Large menu selection from which to choose. Tried the Shepherds Pie which was a major disappointment. A dish full of vegetables with chuck burger topped with plain mashed potatoes. Portions like most places today were huge.
Service stated out slow and went downhill as the evening progressed. Dining room filled up and it was more than the wait staff could handle. The noise level was incredible and had to exceed 95 decibels. Due not only to a full house but the room itself. Hard walls, tables and chairs, and floor with nothing to absorb the sound.
Asked for the check and it only took 20 minutes for that to find our table. Left with a headache, bad taste in my mouth and a hole in my wallet. Won't be back any time soon.

Fine food and service in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Eclectic menu. Full Bar including international wines and microbrew beers on tap.
We were lucky winners of silent auction gift certificate and had a terrific experience. The setting is intimate but tables a little too close together for a romantic dinner. I also learned they don’t accept reservations for parties less than 6. Everything else about the place was fantastic. I had THE best fettuccine Alfredo (which I never order because unless it’s perfectly cooked I won’t like it). It was perfectly cooked. My husband had schnitzel dish and raved about it.

Any other coffee just doesn't compare! they have an extensive selection, especially in flavored, which I love! Sea salt mocha and cinnamon hazelnut are the best. Get it whole bean or fresh ground.
You buy it where it's made! Right next to the roaster and warehouse.

If you want a great me with wonderful ambiance, this is the place to be. Built in 1801 (I believe) the restaurant has such character. We we seated immediately and our waiter was pleasant and helpful with ordering. Start with the Snapper soup, delicious! Meals come with a salad. The seafood was great and the crap cakes were excellent. Highly recommend!!

I grew up on going to Greek Diners and living out here in Berks County, it's tough to find a decent diner, let alone a Greek diner. The Sunset is not a bad little diner. Breakfast in good. I really like their Corned Beef Hash. I can honestly say I've been going her for over 12 years and I can't say I've ever had a bad meal. The only thing that could be better is the salad bar, it could use a few more veggies. They always have daily specials and good lunch specials too. Good homemade soups too. Prices are fair, not over priced. I was surprised to find out that they have good homemade rice pudding.

This is my year round ice cream fix.....the Hawaiian blizzard is my favorite. There is a nice selection of food, and the owner is a super guy who really cares and gives back to the community. Very clean and great prices!

What makes their hoagies so good????......EVERYTHING! They make their own rolls, and they use only the best meats and cheeses, such as Boar's Head.....doesn't get any better than that. Then they load up on the meat, cheese and veggies, than combine to make the best, most flavorful hoagies you've ever eaten.
Then, to top things off, they make the best tomato pies around....and, it's no secret why.....they use the best, freshest, most flavorful ingredients available.
It's take out only.

Come explore the castle and experience the 13th century inspired English atmosphere. Within Stokesay Castle there are two restaurants. The Knight’s Pub is an American Pub with an international twist. We take great pride in offering world class food and service in an open and inviting atmosphere. Our chefs are dedicated to create a menu that offers something for everyone! The Lord's Dining Room menu features contemporary American fine dining cuisine, in a beautifully decorated room. Private rooms are also available for parties or meetings.
Stokesay recently hosted an event for my family and friends that was flawless. The party was for 60 people and everyone, including myself, were raving about the food, service, and amazing atmosphere. Emily Kurz was extremely pleasant, helpful, and went above and beyond her call of services. Our bartenders at the event were nothing short of spectacular, particularly Josh. I have been telling people ever since the event he was the best server I have ever experienced. Overall, we as a group decided we definitely would be back for parties and dinner! Amazing job, thank you!!!

Been here for breakfast and lunch, everything has been awesome!
For breakfast, we had a breakfast sandwich and the quesadilla, which was just awesome. With eggs, chorizo and cheese, you can't go wrong. The sauce on the side made it even better!
For lunch, a friend had a buffalo chicken sandwich (tasty but needed a bit more sauce) and I had the southwest salad, which was full of really fresh ingredients. Their fries are great and come in a decent size container. Go garbage or pulled pork, both are awesome!
Get something new every time, cause the menu is that big!
