swarthmore: Vicky's Place, Swarthmore, Delaware County, PA -- A great spot in a Green Power Town - 08/29/08 02:57 PM
I had a lovely lunch with my wife and sons here the other day.  I had a sandwich (2 fried eggs, pork roll and cheese on a nice, fresh Kaiser roll).  Jinny had an omlette, Chuckie had scrambled eggs, sausage and home fries.  Joey had a bagel with cream cheese.
This cozy little luncheonette is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch, with a home-cooked feel. Homesick Swarthmore College students and locals alike enjoy the traditional fare, friendly service, and the fact that the prices won't strain your wallet.  (Our 4-person meal, including beverages and tip came to about $26)

swarthmore: Swarthmore Borough Description - 11/21/06 07:13 AM
by Rich Schiffer, Weichert Realtors 
Swarthmore is a quaint little college town (Swarthmore College) and is among the most sought after communities in Delaware County. A walk around the town reveals its charm instantly.  The shops in the "Ville", as the locals refer to the shopping district, are the perfect combination of upscale and inviting.  The local Co-op supermarket is a refreshing change of pace.  The Village Restaurant is a local favorite.  A pizza shop, a music shop, a great used & rare book store, some great unique gift shops, and the local hardware store provide for your needs (and maybe a few needs you didn't … (0 comments)
