Where can you get a 2 course lunch for $4.00 in TE?

Where can you get a 2 course lunch for $4.00 in Tredyffrin Easttown?

Yesterday, I went with a friend to Surrey Services for Seniors for lunch. My friend lost his wife over a year ago and I have been telling him for a while to stop by and have lunch at Surrey.

Yesterday he had an appointment that got cancelled and called to see if I was available and if I wanted to join him for lunch. With the bad weather we have been having I thought a warm lunch would be a great choice, so I picked him up and we stopped off at the Surrey Services for Seniors main location at 60 Surrey Way in Devon.

Lunch is served for $4.00, you can also add a cup of soup for an additional $1.00, so you can have a 3 course meal for $5.00. Yesterday's option was Fried chicken, with vegetables and mashed potatoes, an alternative was Bratwurst with saukraut and potatoes, or there was also a choice of tuna salad. I went with the friend chicken which was delicious, crisp, not greasy and very tasty. My friend Art went with the Bratwurst which looked delicious as well. Dessert was a choice of bread and butter pudding, cherry turnover or a fruit cup. My favorite is bread and butter pudding so we both ended up having the same dessert, but some people who joined us on our table had the turnover which also looked good.

Not bad for $4.00 in Tredyffrin Easttown. 

This is one of the reasons I am a big supporter of Surrey Services for Seniors, as these lunches provide a social element for those attending and for many it might be the only hot meal they get each day. Surrey also provides transport, and there is a fitness club, and many other programs you can participate in such as technology classes, current affairs discussions and much more.  You can find all the details on their website at, they have four locations, Devon, Media, Havertown and Broomall.

What a nice and healthy ( and affordable )lunch for Seniors. It's wonderful that you guys are literally putting your money where your mouth is...keeping the Surrey Services for Seniors up and running should be a big priority for the community. Good for you. D

Now that's a deal, for sure... even though I'm not a big eater of fried foods or sausages!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD it is a great place and one of my silent goals is to stop off for lunch more often, I can walk from my office and hear some of the stories of these seniors, they are often quite fascinating.

Nina Hollander portions are not large but adequate so the occaisional treat is OK, and there was a tuna salad option.

WOW! Surrey Services takes care of its Seniors! That's an amazing price you don't see anymore even at places like Denny's! Plus, it's good and healthy. Art sounds like a wonderful friend and I know you are a great friend to him. I'm glad you were able to have lunch together. I hope you do it more often. It's hard losing a spouse. I only had 16 anniversary years and that was tough enough. People who spent 25, 40, 50, 60 years or more have it much harder because with time, two become one and many are lost without their spouse. Surrey Services for Seniors gives back to the community in very good and healthy way.

That is cheap. It made me remember my mother-in-law's days at the senior center and the meals there were $3.00. She helped set the table and always said the food was good.

Good evening Nick and Trudy - Surrey Services really deserves the support of the community.  They are performing a wonderful service.

Hannah Williams if I went every day I think my goal to weigh 190 would not be acheivable, but it is a great place and they are often setting up overflowtables due to demand.

Patricia Feager Art is a very active 80+, I hope I am as active at his age. He was a camera man and still makes videos professionally.Fun person to be around.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel we have been talking about it too long, so I am glad it worked out.

Debbie Reynolds I was surprised how good the food was. And the price cannot be beat.

Grant Schneider they are and are worthy of support, they are growing as well.

What a great idea, it's a community service like no other.

I half wished my extended family lived closer, so they could take advantage.

As for your contributions, I like the idea of working with local groups & charities.

Claude Labbe more and more people are taking advantage of this great deal. It is wonderful to see the conversations and friendships built over a meal.
