Guidebook for Doylestown & Surrounding Areas

Food Scene
I've included breakfast/brunch/lunch suggestions, local coffee, ice cream & bakery shops, casual & fine dining, bars & places with entertainment. The emphasis is on Doylestown spots, but there are quite a few for New Hope and Lambertville too.
Delicious freshly prepared sushi, unique specials and an extensive menu of cooked dishes! I highly recommend the Duck Breast entree. The restaurant is pretty, with a bar & a buzz!

Great fun in the spring! Single or double tubes for this river ride. In late summer, this is a float down the lazy river without much current at all. Very relaxing but if you're looking for a more adventurous ride, go in spring or earlier in the summer.

The Pearl S. Buck House, a National Historic Landmark in Bucks County, PA, was the home of Pearl S. Buck and her family. The beautiful and iconic Bucks County stone farmhouse contains a rich, intact collection from the extraordinary (the typewriter on which she wrote The Good Earth) to the ordinary (a closet full of board games her family played). The grounds of the estate also contain Pearl S. Buck’s gravesite, greenhouse & award-winning gardens. Tours available. Proceeds go to the Welcome House (the world’s first international biracial adoption agency) and to the Pearl S. Buck Foundation (now Pearl S. Buck International) to provide international humanitarian aid.
