The Hidden River Cafe's name translates from the Dutch "Schuylkill." Way back when, the Dutch explorers, sailing up the Delaware, missed the Schuylkill River.
Appropriate name. The Hidden River Cafe is in East Falls a couple of blocks up the hill from the Schuylkill River. It's also pretty well hidden if you aren't familiar with East Falls. Took the Global Positioning System in my car for me to find it.
Well worth the effort. Home cooking with a flair. I started with a chilled summer red pepper soup. Then fettuccini salad with sun-dried tomato pesto, fresh mozzarella and cured olives. A little high falutin' for the likes of this site, but owner Sandy's love-for-food attitude and her stories more than balance things out.
