CC’s Wooden Grill Closed, New Restaurant Opens in Kutztown Location
After a long tenure on Constitution Blvd. in Kutztown, CC’s Wooden Grill has closed its doors. On a recent trip into town to visit the Kutztown Fair, we noticed that the CC’s sign had been taken down off the building.
The site did not stay vacant for long, however. A Facebook post from the Kutztown Community Partnership announced the arrival of Potts’ U, the first Berks County location for the Potts’ Hot Dog franchise based in the Allentown/Bethlehem area.
Crab Barn Progressing toward Re-Opening

Black Dog Cafe Closes
Stouchsburg’s Black Dog Cafe has closed its doors. An August 15 article in the Reading Eagle reported that restaurant, which gained widespread attention after former television personality John Gosselin was hired as a host, abruptly closed its doors. The Stouch Tavern in nearby Womelsdorf has announced that they will honor gift certificates from the Black Dog Cafe at 50-percent value.
