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.

    My new favorite West Chester restaurant. Abundant specials. Would love to see a small amuse-bouche sent out before starters.

    I ordered the seafood ravioli and my girlfriend ordered the crab cakes. Both were outstanding, possibly the best in all of West Chester. The service was excellent. I don't remember the waitress's name but she was fantastic.

    When Spence Cafe originally opened as a BYOB on Gay Street, we really enjoyed dining there. It's great to have "The Original" Spence Cafe back!
