With scents that are inspired by a midwest backyard garden, and products that are chock-full of plant-derived ingredients and essential oils, we're continuously channeling Thelma Meyer's passion for the environment.

Schober Crepes @ Charlie's

Have you ever heard of a Schober crepe? How about roasted pork “Charlie” style with teriyaki. What’s that on top - a few Schober vanilla bourbon peaches and the house made teriyaki sauce. And with peaches in season, expect some creations dressed with Schober Orchards vanilla-bourbon peaches, salted caramel and candied pecans.  Schober’s is a fourth generation family farm, a refreshing step back in time and if you're Charlie, from Charlie's Crepes in Merchantville, where you'll find the freshest local produce in season. As you drive past the lush rows of fruit trees on 275 beautiful acres of preserved farmland, you may see our workers hand-picking the fruit during harvest. And depending on the season, you'll see baskets of colorful, delicious apples, peaches or nectarines as you enter their lot. As Charlie says, “If you’re using good quality local ingredients, you feel good.”  Dining hours are: Wednesday and Friday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; Thursday 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.; and, Sunday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Gelato . . . Yummy!

The recent closure of the Cabana's Water Ice downtown has left many residents and neighbors wondering where to go for a summertime ice cream fix. Well, The Station Coffee is happy to announce that they are now serving up scrumptious servings of Villa Dolce gelato - the very best in authentic Italian flavors. Treat yourself during cafe hours: Monday - Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Station Coffee is located in the old Merchantville train station along the rails-to-trails path. Owners, Matt and Nicole Eiland, offer a seasonal menu, live music events and a meeting space for local groups and organizations.

Best Burger in the County

There's a reason why nearly every restaurant — from fast to fine — has a burger on its menu. It's because they're universally adored. It's the same reason I ate 44 burgers at 44 restaurants in the past two months — to find the absolute juiciest, most flavorful version in each county in the Garden State. The following burgers are so good that even after eating 44 burgers in a very short time, I'm still dreaming about them. The Blue Monkey Burger from Blue Monkey Tavern in Merchantville is Camden County's best burger.

Food Foraging

Located in the heart of downtown Merchantville, NJ, Park Place Cafe & Restaurant serves up delicious handcrafted foods highlighting specialty ingredients they forage themself. Chefs around the world are using foraged ingredients to add exciting, fresh and eco-friendly flavors to their menus. By searching for herbs, fruits and roots from the wild, they create fresh, flavorful dishes. They also champion sustainable practices, indigenous produce and a sense of adventure. Ultimately, foraging chefs like Phil Mangano foster a personal connection with the earth and bring diners unique experiences closer to nature.
