Spence Cafe

For 15 years, Andrew Patten brought life into the West Chester food scene with Spence Cafe. Now he’s back and better than ever with a brand new offering. Visit The Original Spence Cafe for delicious hand-crafted entrees from organic Scottish Salmon to Grilled Maple Brined Pork Chops, and many more locally sourced, fresh from the kitchen dishes. Don’t leave without sweetening your palette with Andrew’s seasonal desserts like double pumpkin bread pudding, or the house favorite creme brulee, made fresh daily by Andrew himself. Andy is excited that The Original Spence Cafe is a BYOB. “I’m concentrating on the food, and focusing on both lunch and dinner,” he said. He explained how the goat cheese was sourced from Lancaster, and the short rib was braised for four hours. They’re making their focaccia and soup stocks in house. In the spring, The Original Spence Cafe will open the back patio, which seats another 40 people. The space has a private room that can be used for private parties of up to 30 people.

    Stopped in for lunch and was glad I did. Love the decor and feel of the place. Had. Lunch special 1/2 sandwich and salad. One of the best Caesar Salads I have ever had and the Roast Beef Sandwich was fresh and very tasty with Gouda cheese And horseradish sauce. Can’t wait to go back for dinner! Service was great as well. 5 stars!!

    My mother, sister, and I were at Spence for Mother's Day. From the delicious toast appetizer of baba ganoush with broccoli rabe and Parmesan to our fabulous entrees (crab cakes, filet, and lobster ravioli with shrimp and scallops) to our mouth watering ice cream sandwich dessert, we enjoyed each bite and enjoyed the atmosphere!
