    Breakfasts of Champions (and Royals!)

    What is the difference between breakfast and brunch? Don’t actually answer that because truthfully, I don’t care about your petty semantics. What I do care about is the entirety of breakfast-related food stuffs.


    Not only is that morning meal (whatever you choose to call it) the most important of the day, it’s undeniably the most delicious. You can fight me on that if you want—I’m right and nothing you can say will ever change my mind or my stomach.


    In my opinion, Hobbits definitely have the right idea… Breakfast. Second Breakfast. Elevensies. Sign me up!


    Now that I’ve said my peace, let me offer you this on-brand awkward transition to some events coming to SteelStacks that I want you to know about, in the spirit of my love of breakfast.


    Mother’s Day Brunch at the Musikfest Café presented By Yuengling.

    When: Sunday, May 13 – Two seatings (10am and 12:45pm)

    FACT: Your mom should not have to cook on Mother’s Day.

    Get off your lazy butt and take her out. Whether she prefers the sweet or the savory brunch, we’ve got you covered. Many families have started making this a yearly tradition at SteelStacks. You should too. Reservations are required; call 610-332-3378 to make them. Your mom is worth it.

    We’re watching the ceremony on the big screen inside the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas AND enjoying a delicious buffet of scones with jam, butter and clotted cream; fresh assorted berries including raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries; breakfast pastries and muffins; and an assortment of teas and coffee… AND there will be a lemon and buttercream wedding cake thanks to the fine folks at Weis Markets at the Westgate Mall.
