Wayne is a wonderful community centered in Delaware Country, Pennsylvania.

Eclectic and contemporary American fare is spearheading the culinary movement in this quaint western suburb. Here are ten of the best places to dine when you’re in the area.

Started by a couple with a mutual love for sweets, today Crêperie Béchamel shares the same passion with Wayne’s local community. Here, delicate crepes are created right on the premises, giving diners a fantastic opportunity to witness the entire process. While signature crepes naturally appeal to the sweet-tooth – visitors simply won’t be able to pass up the caramel s’mores or the apple pie option – it is perhaps the savory offerings that really stand out. Be adventurous for a change and dig right into a crepe filled with chicken cheese steak, roasted vegetables or asparagus and cashew pesto. Alternatively, go wild and create your option concoction out of a myriad of savory and sweet fillings.

With a focus on seasonal produce, sustainable fishing and farm-raised poultry and meats, the chefs at The Silverspoon create the crème de la crème of contemporary American fare. In a casual atmosphere flooded with sunlight, the kitchen serves up top quality dishes all throughout the day, starting off with a large brunch menu. If dinner is what you’re after, the choices are similarly tantalizing with the Lancaster County beef short ribs, the pan-seared sea scallops and the butternut fettuccini immediately standing out. Finish off your meal with something sweet from the dessert menu, the dense Belgian chocolate truffle with Maldon sea salt is a winner.
