Nudy's Luncheonette, Wayne, PA

About 40minutes outside of Philadelphia, Nudy's Luncheonette is small enough to drive past without noticing at first. Hidden behind Whole Foods Market, and almost passing as a residential home, only those who slow down will discover that Nudy's offers a full menu of brunch favorites in a delightfully cozy setting.

Their sweet options include a wide selection of pancakes and french toasts ranging from the everyday to more exciting flavors: banana walnut, peaches and cream, almondine, and gingerbread.

They have a number of savory selections (a few with steak I think)--but nothing that looked exciting to this vegetarian. Nudy's menu also includes a few unexciting salad options, most including chicken. They do list their salad dressings on the menu though, so props on that.

I ordered the ricotta crepe with fresh fruit and whipped cream. My brunch-mate ordered a poached egg (quite good) and the thick-bread french toast.

The presentation of the meals was very pretty to look at: each plate was covered with a gentle coating of powdered sugar and a fresh orange slice.

While my berries were a bit on the wrinkled side of fresh, I can't really complain for late November. The crepe was sweet but not overpowering. Since the maple syrup looked like it might be the fake stuff I opted to simply stick with the whip cream, which worked out better than I expected.

On a Sunday afternoon every table was taken in the small luncheonette, but service was quite attentive.

Overall I would say that Nudy's is a good choice if you're looking for that "home cooked" style brunch with a wide selection of pancakes.
