4. Golden Pheasant Inn
Take advantage of the season’s sublime weather and scenery, and request a seat on the terrace overlooking the towpath. Unlike a lot of urban brunches, the scene at Golden Pheasant Inn is serene and sophisticated, but not the least bit stuffy. Here, the set price of $35 gets you the works: a glass of bubbles, soup or salad to start, an entree and dessert. Chef Blake Faure works closely with local Pennsylvania and Jersey farms to make the weekend affair good for both your belly and the local community. While her eggs Florentine and steak and eggs look fairly standard, they taste anything but. There’s free range eggs from Dark Hollow Hens Farm in the Florentine, the steak is a Pennsylvania grass-fed sirloin. If you can order just one dish, though, go for the French toast. Made with Grand Marnier-battered challah, the griddles slabs are buttery, pillowy, and subtly sweet. Local berries and whipped cream seal the deal. 763 River Rd, Erwinna, PA, 610-294-9595, goldenpheasant.com
