Redvo Restaurant

The owners of the former Penn Steak & Fries in Pottstown are bringing new life to the former Oley Turnpike Dairy with Redvo Restaurant, which opened on February 11. Penn Steak & Fries closed inside the Coventry Mall in late December so the team could concentrate on opening Redvo. Cheesesteaks remain a focal point on the menu, though it now also includes pasta and dinners along with a full breakfast menu.

Heart & Hearth Deli & Smokehouse

The newest stand at the Renninger’s Farmers Market is Heart & Hearth. Specializing in barbecue, Heart & Hearth operated in downtown Jim Thorpe during the second half of 2022. The new location inside Renninger’s will also feature local foods and artisan items.
