Food & Festivals: Kempton Pepper Jam

Berks County Eats visited the first annual Kempton Pepper Jam where we found plenty of hot foods and fun.

Schell’s & Schell’s Dairy Swirl

Not much has changed in the six decades since Schell’s began selling hamburgers and hot dogs along 5th Street Highway in Temple. The prices have gone up a little (you can’t get fries for 15 cents anymore), but the menu is largely the same: burgers, dogs, grilled cheese, fried chicken, fries, onion rings and hamburger bar-b-que.

3rd and Spruce Cafe

The 3rd and Spruce Cafe doesn’t look like much from the outside, but hungry patrons have been finding their way to this West Reading eatery for nearly seven decades. And after three delicious courses, it is easy to see why.

Sofrito Gastro Pub

The Centre Park Historic District is known for its Victorian mansions, but it’s the Caribbean-inspired cuisine at Sofrito Gastro Pub that takes Berks County Eats into the picturesque Reading neighborhood.

Hong Thanh

When you think of Berks County’s food scene, Vietnamese cuisine probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind, but a trip to Hong Thanh could change that.
