I had the pleasure of dining at iCreate Café last night with two very good friends. It was my first visit, but certainly not my last!
The café is at 130 King Street, Pottstown. It’s the block between Hanover and York Streets. iCreate is diagonally across the street from the Salvation Army, so it is very easy to find.
My friends were anxious for me to experience iCreate and to meet the owner, Ashraf (Ash) Khalil. Walking in I immediately knew I would like this place. The vibe is definitely chill. It’s decorated colorfully and casually, making one feel right at home. The owner, Ash, is very friendly and gave me a tour of the café and computer training center before we were seated.
We brought along a nice bottle of wine, which Ash opened up for us and poured into glasses while we looked over the menu. The cuisine is vegetarian/vegan and a number of gluten-free items are on the menu as well.
My friends recommended getting a sampler platter on the first visit, which I did. They have eaten there many times and already have their favorites. There are several sample platters to choose from. Mine came with Hummus, Baba Ghannoj, fava bean salad, Debes and pita bread. My friends ordered several things to share including stuffed grape leaves, Baba Ghannoj and Fattah. Everything was fantastic. The entire meal was expertly prepared, delicious and HEALTHY!
The prices are VERY reasonable. The most expensive menu items are $12.00. We also had dessert, which was very good.
The website is very well done so you can get a good sense of what to expect before you get there. The menu is online. Looking over it again I started a mental list of things I want to try on future visits.
This locally owned and operated business is a refreshing change of pace for Pottstown diners who are drowning in a sea of chain restaurants, pizza and Chinese food. There is nothing like this place in the Greater Pottstown area, that I am aware of. The owner also owns a home in Pottstown which in my book makes him somebody who walks the talk. Give iCreate a try, you won’t be sorry! We give two Roy’s Rant’s thumbs up!
