Yardley Inn, A Yardley Borough Staple

One of the foundational pieces of the small town of Yardley is the Yardley Inn — a historical restaurant known for its views of the Delaware River while enjoying new American cuisine. Many of the fresh ingredients from garnishes such as parsley and lavender to zucchini and heirloom tomatoes are home-grown in their river-side garden. A few of their dishes on the menu now include mixed mushroom cacio e pepe, beet small plate dish, and pictured below is the elote cavetelli — the chef's version of Mexican street corn but make it pasta. The Yardley Inn is your one-stop shop for enjoying delicious classic dishes with a new summer twist.
