Wynnewoodie, bcrider, You are right. Town Hall Coffee is not in Ardmore, but the Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood Patch covers all that the name implies and more, including Penn Wynne and Merion Station, which is where Town Hall Coffee is located. In the interest of not repeating all the town names all the time, we sometimes use Ardmore area. I'm sorry if that has created some confusion for you.

Lucy- are you from around here? People who are looking for coffee in the "Ardmore area" are not going to go to Town Hall. It's not even close. Whoever made up the Patch areas wasn't very well informed. They should move Merion to the Bala Narberth Patch so it would be geographically with its neighbors.

The title is just simplified, that is all. It looks like Gryphon, in Wayne, won for best coffee in "Radnor" and Green Bean, in Gladwyne, won the "Bryn Mawr" survey. This vote was not just about Ardmore, since this is Merion and Wynnewood's Patch too.

The problem is that there is no good way to split up the areas. The greater Main Line area was very difficult to split up because of towns crossing township and country borders and some areas being very loosely defined. We did it the way that seemed to make the most sense taking into account many factors. You're right. It's not perfect, but we had to split them some way and this is how it was done.

There may be no good way to split up the area, but there are certainly better ways than the one we have. Dividing the Bala business district along Montgomery Ave in two, with half in the Bala Patch and half in the Ardmore (Merion) Patch was a mistake. Murray's & Hymie's are in different Patches? They're less than 500 ft apart! Anything on Montgomery Ave in Merion Station is much more relevant to someone living in Bala Cynwyd (or even Narberth) than for someone living in Ardmore (or the Southeastern parts of Wynnewood). If you won't (or can't) tweak Patch geography, please write up the results of your polls more accurately.
