The Conshohocken Cafe is a Hit!
If you've been through Conshohocken lately you may or may not have noticed the new cafe in town. Opened about 3 months ago, it was born out of a relationship formed by two friends who found each other playing poker, of all things.
Mike Orchewski (I know this spelling is murdered, sorry Mike!), owned On a Roll, which was literally located next to the building where the Cafe now resides at 521 Fayette St. and Tim Mulvey, an energy drink promotional manager and sales exec came up with the idea when the new location opened up.
"We realized that there were no locally owned cafe's in downtown Conshohocken to service all of the businesses that reside in the area. With the Conshy towers a walking distance away, and Conshohocken attracting a younger crowd for shopping and just hanging out on the weekends, the idea seemed to have some legs.", said Tim.
The Cafe is elegantly casual and provides a very calming and friendly atmosphere to enjoy breakfast or lunch, or even just a cup of coffee in the morning by yourself or with friends.
Bucks County Coffee supplies the coffee and the Cafe is the only retail place in the area to do so once again. The menu also provides a ton of comfort foods as well as some very unique recipes for soups, sandwiches, and other dishes that may be considered eclectic but are fantastic and a welcome change to just grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken fingers.
Friends pitched in to help get the place up and running with construction, marketing and other start up essentials. It truly is a local business and if you stop into Conshy, you'll be missing out if you don't hit this place up for a bite to eat or even just a cup of coffee while resting your feet.
