While most of the area’s restaurateurs will be spending the day elsewhere, there are a select few who will be at their posts serving only the essentials this Thanksgiving.
BREAKFAST & LUNCH
Fret not, my coffee lovers. Breakfast and lunch in and around Ardmore is covered. Starbucks will be open and brewing up seasonal favorites throughout the morning and afternoon. The Ardmore Café will be great for a quick bite and Delancey Street Bagels will fill that doughy void. Have some breakfast at IHOP all day long or order a little Mediterranean takeout from Grape Leaves Grille for an impromptu lunch: daytime hours only though!
6:30 a.m.—3 p.m. (Note: the rest of Suburban Square, as well as the Ardmore Farmers Market, .)
10 a.m.—2 p.m.
8 a.m.—2 p.m.
Daytime hours only
Start a new tradition this Thanksgiving with a Japanese dinner at (mmmm, sushi...) or Indian fare at (mmmm, lamb and samosas...).
Also open for lunch is , with its Indian buffet, in the Greenfield Avenue shopping center in Ardmore. (It sounded from a conversation with the owner that he might be presuaded to stay open later if there are enough people making a reservation, however.)
Believe it or not, everyone else is closed for the holiday. Luckily you can be thankful that these local eateries are open and serving—just in case the turkey doesn't do the trick.
After a day with the family, a stop at a local watering hole may be just what the doctor ordered. Luckily, these places will be open at 8 p.m., just in the nick of time...
Bar opens at 8 p.m.
Open 8 p.m.—2 a.m.
Opens around 8 p.m.
Keep in mind the importance of tipping on a holiday. Your waiter, waitress or barkeep will thank you—I promise!
