GateHouse Cafe Opens in East Falls


The Gatehouse Cafe, located in East Falls recently celebrated its grand opening on Tuesday,GateHouse Cafe June 1, 2010. Surely to become a neighborhood favorite, the Gatehouse Café located on 3300 Henry Avenue will be the new “hot spot” for fast casual dining.

Two local female entrepreneurs, Gina Bostic and Adrienne Williams are the owners of the Café. Both have devoted themselves to serve the needs of The Falls Center and local community by providing high quality, delectable food at affordable prices. The restaurant features free Wi-Fi for nearby students - adding a modern edge to old-fashioned charm.

Bostic says she’s ecstatic about the upcoming opening. “This café is a piece of history in our own backyard. With 18,000 cars driving by here everyday- we are sure this café will be a gem in the community,” she said.

Williams added, “This isn’t just any normal café. We kept the exposed roof beams and natural stonewalls, but transformed it with present day appeal.”

Currently in the last phases of extensive renovation, Gatehouse Café is located in an existing, historical building on the grounds of the Falls Center. Originally built in the 1900’s as a horse barn and later converted in the 1930’s as a tea house named, “The Inn,” this notable building was a place where students and faculty would gather and socialize on the college grounds of the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania.

Capturing an open, airy and stylishly rustic atmosphere, Gatehouse Café adds an elegant touch while still maintaining the historical feel of the past. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, Gatehouse Café is a cool, relaxed and historically significant place where the same idea applies from the past; to socialize with friends, unwind over lunch with co-workers, hold mini-conferences or just take a few minutes out of your busy day to decompress and enjoy a delicious meal.

The Gatehouse Café is open for breakfast and lunch, Monday through Friday from
7:00 a.m. to 3 p.m.

No reservations are required, but if you have a special request, please call us and we’ll be happy to arrange for your group.
