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.

    I always enjoy eating at Spence Cafe going back to the time when it was located on Gay Street (opposite the Wells Fargo parking lot). I recently ate dinner at the High Street location (opposite the Warner Hotel). The service, food and table setting were very, very good. The chef, owner is very creative and four of us had an enjoyable dining out experience. Also, have had lunch there and the soup, salad and sandwiches are very very good.

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!

    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!
