Too bad I visited Quakertown's Front Street Cafe on the cusp of spring; the night was still too chilly to take advantage of the restaurant's al fresco dining area, which promises to be an ideal spot in clement ...

Q Alive! Did you hear what this restaurant visitor/critic stated?! Listen, this is what people look for and enjoy. Outdoor dining, a nice upscale atmosphere and oh did you hear how crowded it was?!

Obviously, people are interested and people want more of this and more options. Get on the phone Q Alive! and get more of these places in town!

The article was a little too opinionated for me, even though she was a critic, but she definitely gave props when props were due.

Maybe this guy knows other restaurant owners and the likes, and maybe he can spike interest in other possibilities for the downtown nightlife ( i use the term nightlife loosely) haha

I went here for lunch today. The place is beautiful inside, exactly what was needed in this area. I didnt think the prices were bad at all as I am use to paying $10 per person for a lunch. However the service was very slow, but I still gave a 22% tip. As for being busy there were only 6 people in the entire place. It made me think that the place wont last because their is not enough of a lunch business. If this place were in Conshy or KOP it would be full from 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM with a lunch crowd. Qtown just doesnt have the working crowd that other places do. Also, parking sucks. If it were raining, I would skip this place as you have to park in an unpaved lot. Not good if you take out your lady who is nicely dressed. This is a good start to Front street, other businesses need to wake up and see the potential. Good place, I will definitely go back.

Lunch may have not been crowded, but you should see the place on the weekends. I have had the luxury of eating at this establishment and i called ahead and made reservations. Luckily I did, because the place was packed and people waited quite a long while sitting on those sofas until seated.

Don't really know why you think they won't succeed. This place is definitely succeeding from what i gather.

Parking is plentiful too...so no walking 4 blocks to get there or driving around in circles looking for a spot. Plus, If you were smart you would have seen the parking sign directing you where to park in a clean paved lot just across juniper street.

Sorry your doll got all muddy!

Samsonite, do you bother to read the entire post, or just start spouting off?

I didn't say they wouldn't succeed, I questioned how much better they could do with a lunch crowd.."As for being busy there were only 6 people in the entire place. It made me think that the place wont last because their is not enough of a lunch business. If this place were in Conshy or KOP it would be full from 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM with a lunch crowd."

And my girl didn't get all muddy. I stated that if you were dressed nicely, you will want to avoid parking in the unpaved lot across the street..."Also, parking sucks. If it were raining, I would skip this place as you have to park in an unpaved lot. Not good if you take out your lady who is nicely dressed."

And I didn't see any parking signs.(must not be smart) I came from Park and made a left onto Front. Before you know it you have to park in the train yard, or you will be past the business.

Make sure to read the entire post and digest it before responding.

I just noticed the parking sign but you might have missed. If you turn left off of Park, look to your left, it is in between buildings.

I have been there three times, and the food has just been so so, don't mind the parking. The coffee was luke warm every time we went. Not sure if we will go back and pay the dinner prices when we weren't that excited about the brunch and sandwiches.

Bucks County Resident,

This is what you said,
"It made me think that the place wont last because their is not enough of a lunch business"

To me, that sounds like your saying it won't succeed or have difficult staying around..does it not?

It's what you wrote....don't get mad at me.

I think you need to proofread what you write before you post it and then spew hatred of other posters for "digesting what you have said" and responding back word

One word for you..."Chillax"

Where did the chef move his business? Is he the owner of the Brick Tavern Inn?

Went to dinner on Front Street twice and first time was special second time the service really was poor.

What does the place house now it looks like a hippie joint.

the new business is yoga and pillates. the chef who ran the front street cafe went out of business. the brick tavern is owned by the husband & wife that ran the saloon at Mccooles before jan took on the business.

Just what quakertown 'doesnt" need.
They should have turned it back into a corner grocery store. A store that offered organic meats and local grown veggies.
Use to be home to the old B and O food store.
Fredericks meats now at the qmart got its start there...

Just like you Quakertown red-necks to put down a business that works to improve bodies and minds. Please elevate yourselves from the getto mentality.
