Cedars becoming quite the destination

Cedars becoming quite the destination


The dining lineup at the Cedars Country Store complex on Skippack Pike in Worcester Township has grown by a third.

Grant Langdon Brown has added del Prado - a country-elegant bruncherie/takeout - in a former eyeglass shop next to his Mediterranean small-plater, 19 Bella.

Kevin Carton's Olce Pizza Grille - also a destination - rounds out the development, which in the olden days housed a restaurant by Alison Barshak.

Del Prado opens at 7 a.m. with creative breakfasts and segues into lunch (sandwiches, panini and salads).

Brown makes his own bread and butter. There's also a sizable cheese and grocery selection, including homemade pastries and hand-held pies to go, pour over, brewed and espresso coffees (Brown roasts his own), cured meats, pastas, honey and homemade preserves and jams.

The location - at Bustard Road and just east of Skippack Village - confuses the heck out of many GPS units because the area goes by "Lansdale," "Worcester" or "Cedars." Google Maps uses Worcester.
