Front Street Fountain
1 West Front Street
Media, PA 19063
I, sometimes, look to FourSquare to find interesting places to eat here in and around Philly!! (I won’t lie and just admit that sometimes I’m looking for places where I can earn badges. Other times, I just want to try new places with my son.)
Front Street Fountain was one of those places. Located in Media, PA (off of Baltimore Pike) on a very, very tiny block, Front Street Fountain feels very turn of the century from the outside. Entering, I thought of a malt shop.
The restaurant’s staff were very friendly and the young man behind the counter entertained my son’s endless questions about training going around and around on the track above the aforementioned counter.
Front Street Fountain is very kid-friendly, going so far as to have a kiddie dining area complete with kiddie chairs, chalkboard and Disney Junior playing on the humongous flat screen TV.
The food was delicious. My son had a Grilled Cheese Sandwich and French Fries. I had:
- Blue Onion Burger: Patty with Bleu cheese, BBQ sauce and an onion ring on top
- Honey Butter Sweet Fries: Sweet Potato Fries covered with a mixture of melted butter and honey
- Strawberry Cheese Cake Shake: Strawberry Shake mixed with cream cheese.
- Deep Fried Double Stuffed Oreos
The staff were very patient with us (as it was our first time there), they didn’t rush us and the staff even put my son’s order in first so that his food would come out while I had a chance to peruse the menu. I loved the burger, although I would not have thought of those combination of ingredients. The fries were delicious. I fell in love with the Deep Fried Oreos!! I definitely have to return to eat more of them!!!
I didn’t really like the milkshake and that simply was because it tasted like they didn’t really mix the cream cheese and the strawberry Shake thoroughly. There were actually chunks of cream cheese, which made it hard to sip through the straw.
My son loved it and I would definitely return, even if it’s only for the Deep Fried Double Stuffed Oreos. Peruse their menu at: www.frontstreetfountain.com
