    Teca features tapas-stule hors d'oervres and great paninis and grilled sandwiches. Almost everything on their lunch menu is under $10. Despite the stunning hand-blown glass chandeliers improted by Teca from the island of Murano and the hand-painted Italian tiles on the wall, the atmospere and the staff are very friendly and down to earth. For evening diners, there is an extensive wine list.

    Favorite Dish: Appetizer: French fries with their own dipping sauce
    Tapas: tre the meat and cheese plates. The staff is happy to help you pick a selection.

    This is a very chic Mexican restaurant in downtown West Chester. The decor has a very southwest feel, and there is a beautiful outdoor space that is great for gatherings in the warmer months. Prices are reasonable. Definately try the margaritas, but beware - the pichers are for at least four people!

    Favorite Dish: Pollo Enchiladas with Mole Poblano. The Mole Poblano is a cocoa-based enchilada sauce. This may sound suspect if you've never had it. But try it - you'll be quite convinced! Also, the ribs are to die for!

    Pizza is not why I make a stop here when I come to my hometown from South Florida. It's reliable cheesesteaks and the delicious stromboli. Although normally I have to choose between the two and cheesesteak wins out because I can't get them down here with regularity.

    Service is not particularly great, as the place is staffed by high-schoolers. Ambiance isn't the best either. If I were you, I'd order for pickup or delivery.

    Favorite Dish: Cheesesteaks (done right), stromboli, pizza fries, fried ravioli appetizers... all yum!

    Kildare's Pub is located on Gay Street in Westchester, the main drag of the town. It was built in 2003 and whoever did the interior did a fantastic job. Aside from 2 bars and areas to sit down and dine, they have a lounge area in the back (witha cool library-ish motif), a fireplace, and a few giant televisions. It is packed on the weekends and a lot of fun!

    Dress Code: no dress code.

    Bonner Park is my favorite little park for a picnic or a little bit of hiking. It borders a railroad track (though the track is rarely used). The track has a stream on one side of it with some nice areas, and on the other side is a steep hill. If you walk along the tracks for a while, there will be a path that leads up to the hill, eventually to this lookout point. Neato!

    This park also has some historic buildings on it. An old ruin of a colonial plantation.

    Alternately you can use the paths as a death-defying mountain biking trail.. I wouldn't recommend it though. Very steep paths.

    Take 926 to Cheyney Rd. to Cheyney College. At 4 way stop next to college head stone, take left to Creek Rd. Follow it to Locksley Rd. Gravel parking area is just off of creek on Locksley, right next to the train tracks. Trails into Bonner are up the tracks from the parking area on the right.
