Major disappointment
Based on the other, stellar reviews, I wish I could find *that* Cresheim Cottage Cafe! The one I ate at last night was suffused with fireplace smoke (waaaaay past ambience) and presented unremarkable and undercooked food. My entree, fish & chips, took nearly an hour to arrive and was still partly raw/doughy when served. We politely asked for the check, minus the sushi, and left. I must say that our overworked waiter was very gracious (and most likely caught in the middle -- I've heard that the chef is also the owner, and if that's true then the waitstaff would have little say in what goes out to the tables).

I believe in supporting neighborhood businesses and when I find a place I like, I tell everyone I know. But based on my experience with this restaurant, I would not go back -- and based on my impression of the owner & staff, my feedback to them in person would not be welcome. All in all, a real shame.

good dining experience
The food is interesting and tasty for the price. Our waitress was very patient with us because it took us awhile to get seated and decide what to eat. All of the salads are yummy. The desserts are good as well.

They must have accidentally knocked over a Morton's salt into the mashed potatoes the night we ate there...they were really salty! I'm assuming that the chef/kitchen staff might have had an off-day.

great neighborhood restaurant
My partner and I eat at the Cottage regularly, and it is awesome. The menu changes each season, and it seems to just get better and better. We love the atmosphere, especially the outdoor area in the spring/summer and the fireplace room in the winter. The staff is great, and they are always friendly and make us feel at home. Cresheim Cottage is a great asset to Mt. Airy. Try the crab cakes!

Great environment
We went for lunch and the food was tasty. We sat outside and it felt sometimes we were forgotten. It took a long time to get refills for our drinks even when there weren't many people. I had the bread pudding, yummy. I recommend it for lunch since you don't have to make a reservation. We enjoyed our visit and I look forward trying the brunch on Sunday.

Food, Service, Atmosphere... all great!
We actually learned about Cresheim Cottage on Citysearch. It's in Mt. Airy, and the R7 let us off one short block away. You definitely need a reservation for a Friday night. We had to wait about ten minutes (with no res), but it was worth it. We started with the Dip Trio, and then I had the Crab Cakes and my date had the Softshell Crabs. Really really really amazing. Our waitress was great... professional and polite. Everything was just so good that I had to come back to Citysearch and write about it.
