Reading and Berks County’s dining scene continues to grow and we are looking forward to trying all of the new restaurants set to open in the coming weeks and months. Here are the restaurants we know are coming soon to Berks County:

Cafe Esperanza
105 W. Greenwich St, Reading 19601
Projected Opening: Fall 2019

When it opens this spring, Cafe Esperanza will be the area’s first pay-what-you-can cafe. The cafe will provide an opportunity for everyone to enjoy a chef-cooked meal with fresh ingredients while also providing job opportunities and creating a new neighborhood gathering place in northwest Reading.


Casa Cortes Mexican Grill
39 N. 9th St
Reading, PA 19601
Projected Opening: Fall 2019

Casa Cortes Mexican Grill is set to open soon in downtown Reading. The restaurant, which takes over a space most recently occupied by Caridad Restaurant, started a Facebook page in June and is participating in September’s Berks County Latin Fest.


Castaneda’s Mexican Restaurant
225 E. Penn Ave
Robesonia, PA 19551
Projected Opening: Fall 2019

Castaneda’s Mexican Restaurant is on the move. The Robesonia favorite closed its location at 141 West Penn Avenue in July as it prepares for a move to a new, larger location on the other end of town. The new location at 225 East Penn Avenue is still being renovated.


Grind
45 S. Reading Ave, Boyertown 19512
Projected Opening: Fall 2019

Taking over the former My Girls’ Restaurant in downtown Boyertown, Grind promises an “upscale and yet approachable” dining experience. The restaurant is now hiring and was scheduled to open in July, but has been delayed with no updated timetable.


Mi Casa Su Casa Cafe
726 Penn Ave, West Reading, PA 19611
Projected Opening: Winter 2019-20

Mi Casa Su Casa Cafe, the popular downtown Reading restaurant, will be opening a new location in West Reading sometime in late 2019 or early 2020. The Cafe, which will be located in a former salon at 726 Penn Avenue, will be the third location for Mi Casa Su Casa, joining a stand at Shillington Farmers Market that opened last year.


The West Reading Motor Club will open in fall 2019 in the former A to Z Vacuum in West Reading

West Reading Motor Club
416 Penn Ave, West Reading 19611
Projected Opening: Fall 2019

What many locals remember as the A to Z Vacuum store in West Reading was once a car dealership. Soon, it will be West Reading’s newest dining destination when the West Reading Motor Club opens. The restaurant, which is being opened by the owners of Say Cheese, also will feature a second floor bar called the Nitro Bar. The restaurant is on schedule to open by fall while the Nitro Bar is already open.
