The staff at The Valley Café is celebrating one year in business at its popular Upper Hanover location at the Shady Nook Shopping Center.
Known as the “home of the ultimate omelette,” The Valley Café is celebrating one year in business at its popular Upper Hanover location.
“We love our customers and they have really made us feel a part of the Upper Perkiomen Valley area,” said Marketing and Catering Manager Karyn Lesher. “That’s what is so special about this area. It’s a tight-knit community with old-fashioned values. People are so nice and down-to-earth. They love our comfortable, friendly, homey atmosphere.”
But it isn’t the atmosphere that sends most people through the café’s doors. It’s their appetite. And the café’s owner, Craig Keyser, and Lesher note the café doesn’t short-change patrons with the amount of food they offer.
“What stands out for people is our delicious food and big portions. Besides our omelettes, people rave about the grits, sausage gravy and creamed dried beef. And our ham, turkey and roast beef are roasted on premises daily. There’s no lunchmeat in our sandwiches.”
The omelette, however, is still one of the café’s main attractions and one look at the menu will tell you why. “Ultimate” omelettes, made with three eggs, include staples like cheese and western, but also feature monikers like the popular “Miss Weenie’s” with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and feta cheese and the “Too Tall” (named for Keyser’s 6’7” tall son) with sausage, ham, American cheese, tomatoes and onion. Patrons can also create their own omelettes with their choice of three fixings of veggies, cheeses or meats.
In addition to a wide variety of hearty breakfast faire, the café also serves lunch with cold and hot sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts.
Lesher said the café, open from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. daily, offers daily specials and takeout and also provides catering for all occasions at the café or on-location. They also host breakfast and lunch meetings and have private party space available after 4 p.m. for groups of 75 or less.
The café gives senior citizen and emergency responder discounts. Free Wi-Fi is also available.
In honor of their one-year anniversary at the Shady Nook Shopping Center, the café is having customer appreciation month in March. On their anniversary day, March 1, patrons can get a free drink with their dine-in purchase (restrictions apply). All month long, customers can enter to win one of four gift certificates to the café and, on March 31, a grand prize drawing will be held for four club box tickets for a Philadelphia 76ers game.
Customers are also invited to join the newly-formed birthday club where they can get a voucher for a free meal the week before or after their birthday with the purchase of another meal.
Lesher said Keyser and his staff, some of which came with him from his former restaurant in Limerick, are happy to be a part of the community and are grateful the café has developed such a strong and loyal customer base.
“Craig and his staff wish to thank all their customers for their business and support this past year,” she noted. “And if you haven’t been to The Valley Café, you are invited to experience what their happy customers already know!”
