Coming Soon

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:

Barrel & Ale
961 N. Reading Ave, Boyertown 19512
Projected Opening: Unknown

A new restaurant is planned for the former Decades Speakeasy/Pit Stop Tavern locaation in Boyertown. The property has been acquired by the owners of Iezzi’s on 3rd (Boyertown) and Doc’s Irish Pub (Gilbertsville). The restaurant, named Barrel & Ale, is slated to open after the remodel is completed.

Cafe Esperanza
105 W. Greenwich St, Reading 19601
Projected Opening: Late Summer 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.

Go Fish! Seafood Market & Sushi
301 S. Hull St, Sinking Spring 19608
Projected Opening: June 2019

Go Fish! is opening a new, larger location along Hull Street in Sinking Spring. The seafood market and sushi bar has been without a stand-alone location since a fire swept through the kitchen of its former home in West Reading in March 2018. The new restaurant is slated to open in mid-June.

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

Taking over the former My Girls’ Restaurant in downtown Boyertown, Grind promises an “upscale and yet approachable” Italian dining experience. The restaurant is slated to open in the summer.

Irena’s Mexican and Italian Food
10 W. Penn Ave, Wernersville 19565
Projected Opening: June 9

A new restaurant is coming to the former A&M Pizza in Wernersville. Irena’s Mexican and Italian Food, which originally opened in Auburn, Schuylkill County, is expected to open in its new location this June.

On a Roll Grill
600 E. Penn Ave, Wernersville 19565
Projected Opening: June 2019

Coming soon to a strip mall just east of Wernersville, On a Roll Grill will feature hamburgers, hot dogs, wings and other finger food favorites. A coming soon sign is now up and the restaurant says a grand opening announcement will be made in the coming weeks.

Saucony Creek Brewing Company
693 Chestnut St, Reading 19602
Projected Opening: Summer 2019

In 2018, Kutztown-based Saucony Creek Brewing Company announced plans to open a second location at the former Franklin Street Station in downtown Reading. The latest update in early 2019 was that all permits had been secured and construction was slated to begin. The targeted opening date is still listed as Spring 2019.

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

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.
