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.

    Always love going to Spence! Can't wait for my next visit. The food is always cooked to perfection and the mushroom soup is to die for!

    Dinner at Spence's was excellent. Thai mussels as a first course was very tasty in a coconut broth with just enough punch from the Jalapeno pepper slices. All salads were nicely prepared and ample. The halibut was so fresh and tender and the beet risotto was a perfect accompaniment. Next time I will leave room for dessert!

    Thank you so much for accommodating our group of 4 after the show at Uptown Theater, and for not making us feel rushed at that late hour. We had a very enjoyable experience with our friends and fellow theater goers Lee Miller
