The new Leesport Diner is now open. The restaurant opened for the first time on Sunday, February 28.

The restaurant, located at the intersection of Routes 61 and 73, is open 24 hours.
Brook’s Cafe coming to Douglassville
A new breakfast and lunch spot is coming to the Douglassville area. Brook’s Cafe is coming soon to the Benjamin Franklin Court Shopping Center along Route 422 West. The sign is up above the door of the former Don Julio restaurant and crews have been working inside for the past few weeks. No open date is available yet.
Correction: In a correction from last week’s Food News recap, the Bloomin’ Lotus Cafe is not closed. The building is for sale, but the business is still open.
