If you’ve never been to downtown Kennett Square, PA, you should go. Not just for the quaint shops and great bookstores, but for the food. One eatery is called Talula’s Table, a gourmet market and all purpose breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot. They offer everything from local cheeses (like Doe Run Dairy’s Hummingbird cheese, which you can find at the Newark Co-Op Farmers Market on Sundays) to pre-made salads and sandwiches to house baked tarts made with local berries. Not to mention all the sauces and spices you need to stock your gourmet pantry, or a take home dinner of roast chicken with all the interesting and healthy side dishes to go with it.
The husband and I enjoyed an afternoon treat and an Americano from their full service coffee bar while soaking up the bright and inviting atmosphere.
I fell in love. (Did I mention they have over 100 cheeses in their cheese case?)
I’m not the first person to fall in love with Talula’s Table. They offer a wildly popular dining experience called Farm Table Dinners. So wildly popular, you must book a reservation for a party of 10 to 12 one year in advance. With eight carefully planned courses made with local, organic and sustainable ingredients, it’s hard to imagine waiting a full year!
I’ll happily drive a pleasant 45 minutes through the Delaware and Pennsylvania country side to have a sweet treat and a coffee at Talula’s Table. But next time, I’ll be sure to take home a gourmet dinner.
