The Local - new cafe in Souderton

While in Souderton today for a doctor's appt. and to bring a Turtle Pecan Latte (from Main St. Java) to my daughter at work at Univest Bank, I saw that the old Caboose Grille now had a new name. I went inside to pick up a menu and had a lovely conversation with Alan - the owner and two of his wait staff, Kelsey and Stephanie. Alan is a Vince Vaughn look-a-like and was more than willing to give me a little overview of his new place. They are open for breakfast and lunch Mon-Sun 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. Dinners are served on Fri-Sat from 4:30 - 10:30 p.m. Nice wooden tables and wooden floor inside the old station and several outside patio tables available which are shaded by the train station overhang. Lunch and breakfast menu consists of the basic breakfast and lunch fare, but I was intrigued by the "Lost in Italy" burger that Alan said was named for a burger he ate while literally "lost at the side of the road in Tuscany". The dinner menu varies based on what meat and produce are available that week from local vendors. Alan did mention that he usually has Squash Lasagne as one of the featured weekend entrees - especially during the Summer months. Prices looked very affordable. LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Farm-to-Table restaurants that are so popular now. The Local is a BYOB and is located at the intersection of Main St. and Route 113 in Souderton right next door to the Univest bank HQ. Plan to go for dinner in a few weeks. Wish this weekend wasn't so busy. Will report back once I get to experience this lovely new place. Let me know if any other CHOWS try it in the meantime. Chow for Now.
