Can someone help me to find a place to eat at that cooks with love? Another place that gets away with murder. Are you
serving food or are you trying to impress with your alcohol selection. Overpriced bar food cooked improperly, disguised on the menu as something special, and over priced. It seems to be the new standard for success. Kinda like being forced to eat the middle isles of the grocery store when you expect the outside isles. Just a shame...

You know, it IS a business, and their goal is to make a profit. HOWEVER - there is a difference between profit and GOUGING. Our server rattled off the list of wines available by the glass. We recognized one we liked - and knew it retailed for about $10 a bottle. So - our reasonable presumption is that we would be paying about $7 a glass. After all, they do have to pay the rent and the employees. Well. The “glass” was equivalent to approximately 1/6 of a bottle. You know - the bulbous, oversized glass that is supposed to make you feel you’ve gotten and grand quantity but is only filled to an elegant 1/5 height. And when the check came we learned it cost us $12 for each glass. By our calculation they are charging a minimum of 7x the cost of the wine they serve. And, as we have a keen interest in wines in that $10-$22 price range, we suggest they dig a little deeper - there are more interesting options than those they are offering. The restaurant is pretty, but loud - high ceilings and lots of hard surfaces. The food was - mediocre. Not good. Not bad. Mine was a little cold - not as though it sat, but as though it had never really been heated properly. Service was unremarkable. It was our first visit to this restaurant, and our last. There are many other Doylestown restaurants that offer a far more unique, higher quality and fairly priced experience.

If you ever told me I would actually like brussel sprouts I would say you are crazy, but now I am crazy about MOM's Shredded Brussel Sprouts. Plus, that is not the only dish they have enhanced to make absolutely addicting.

MOM's has it all. Excellent food served in an historic Doylestown storefront building. The best craft beer selection on tap and in cans in the area, and live music upstairs several nights a week.

I keep on coming here because this is the only place that doesn't only use lettuce as a salad base and has gazpacho in the summer. Their soups keep changing but they're all delicious, their lamb and pork belly are amazing, and they have a very solid selection of beer.
