When you think back over your favorite meals over the years, chances are, aside from the meals you enjoyed at home, the ones you loved the most occurred in charming cafés and unpretentious diners—the ones that prepared hearty meals bearing names you didn’t have to use your French/American dictionary to translate and were delivered to you by smiling servers who really meant it when they asked you how your day was going. These were the restaurants that served the meals of your dreams, and when you visit the Poconos, you can relive those epicurean experiences with a visit to the Chat and Chew Café.
Located at 248 PA-940 in Blakeslee
Open every day of the week from 7AM to 2:30 PM, the simple décor manages to be welcoming without outshining the real reason you came—the food! This is the spot where locals come to learn what’s going on in Blakeslee, to say hey to their neighbors, and enjoy the best cuppa in town. The staff knows everyone by name, and if you visit enough during your stay, they will soon come to know yours as well. So, pull up a chair and have a seat; this is going to be a meal to remember!
The Menu at the Chat and Chew Café
Every meal on the menu is potentially your new favorite dish, prepared exactly the way you order it. Their breakfasts are filling and hearty. Keep it simple with eggs, bacon, and toast, or experiment with the famous Belly Buster Messy Mike: fried chicken steak, bacon, two eggs with home fries and cheddar cheese topped with sausage gravy on a thick and hearty Kaiser roll. Obviously not known as the diet special, vacation time is the perfect time to sample it as everyone knows vacation food has no calories! The Brunch menu features more choices such as Eggs Benedict and the Steak and Eggs breakfast. Simple foods using locally sourced ingredients and healthy choices make Chat n Chew Café the type of hometown diner that proves American small towns are special!
Fueled Up for a Fun Day in Nature
Now that you’ve filled your stomach with the great breakfast goodies from the Chat-n-Chew, it’s time to fill your quest for adventure with a trip down the Delaware River in East Stroudsburg, but only during an April through October visit! Offering tours that range from just a few hours to all day adventures, Shawnee River Trips allows participants to live on the wild side for a little while! Work on your upper body strength as you paddle down the river in a rented canoe or kayak or work on your core body strength with a paddleboard rental; the mental benefits to any of these activities will add to the physical ones and provide you with memories that will last forever!
Fishing is another popular activity in the area and is something you can do from the shore or a boat as you spend a day reeling in catfish, perch, and a variety of bass. Dinner in your Pocono Mountain Rentals home promises to be extra tasty when serving up the catch of the day caught by yours truly! Any of the equipment you need to rent for any of these activities can be found at Dunkelberger’s Sports Outfitters, 585 Main Street, conveniently located in Stroudsburg for easy access and returns!
All This Fresh Air Will Make You Thirsty!
After a day on the river, an evening spent enjoying the liquid delights at RAW Urban Winery & Hard Cidery, 616 Main Street, also in Stroudsburg, will be much appreciated! Designed to appeal to drinkers of all types, their local wines and ciders are refreshing and tasty! Offering vegan and gluten-free beverages, it’s their RAW process that makes their product stand out in a sea of sameness, not that we have a problem with any of the other wineries or distilleries in the area; this one just offers a deliciously different take on their wines, ciders, and hand-crafted cocktails, giving visitors a special treat at the end of the day. Featuring an online gift shop that allows you to re-order your favorites for delivery, a tasting room with $5 tastings, and special events that occur throughout the year, the RAW Urban Winery & Cidery will definitely be one of the highlights of your exciting Pennsylvania explorations!
