Prince Street Cafe

Rating: 6+ [see key]

Lancaster is slowly turning into one of my favorite areas in Pennsylvania. The city and the surrounding Amish countryside offer such a beautiful mix of the bucolic and the tantalizing that even though I get out there quite frequently, I have yet to grow tired of the region.

One of my more recent delightful experiences came from a visit to Prince Street Cafe. Long on my list of shops to visit, time or other hurdles kept me from dropping by, but one beautiful Saturday, I finally made it out with my son to grab some coffee as we traveled through the city. The cafe has a beautiful polish, both inside and out, that combines great design with a warm, easy-going vibe. 

As for coffee, they serve up Necessary Coffee, a sister roasting company to Passenger. For both my espresso and drip coffee, I had their Blend. The espresso, pulled short/medium with brown crema, smacked of chocolate, lemon, vanilla, cream, some smokiness and a touch of basil, making for a stout infusion that was very tasty. The drip brought out some smoother, subtler notes, with flavors of strawberry, croissant, sweet bread, cashew, whole milk, bib lettuce and a little nutmeg. 

All together, while I was unable to hang around long, my full experience was stellar and I look forward to my return trip. The next time you happen to be in the city of Lancaster, definitely swing by Prince Street Cafe.

These wonderful folks made this visit possible in part. Make sure to check them out!
