It is arguably the most anticipated time of the work day. No, not happy hour- adulting back at the homefront still awaits, just as those beverages begin to taste even more delicious. I am not talking about the mass exit at EOB and the excusable satisfaction of overtime not being approved by management. And certainly, I am not referring to the early morning meeting when the strong coffee has not yet seeped into the bloodstream. No, I’m referring to the highly anticipated lunch hour. An hour dedicated to freedom, text responses, limb stretches and an endless roster of grub options- especially in the ‘eatery stocked’ borough of West Chester, Pennsylvania. This mid-day break is dedicated to quieting the stomach growls and evaporating the drool formed as any focus was invaded with distracting thoughts of lunch selection. A decision not to make loosely, your lunch choice can undeniably make or break your afternoon.

One thing is for sure- competition is steep! As an employee within the borough and a resident on the outskirts of town, I recognize that the restaurant scene is one of the vibrant characteristics that gives this area so much personality and appeal. There is an abundance of dining options within a 5-mile radius that are all guaranteed to never disappoint. Bill Handy, align.Space community manager, loves to keep an ongoing rotation of lunch selections but assigns Market Street Grill as a constant contender. Personally, I love to keep it classic with the consistently delicious menu of Classic Diner, and love the new flavors that Mae’s is bringing to the table- literally.
