Tradestone Cafe, located at 117 Fayette Street in Conshohocken, is under new management and introduced a new menu this week. The new management is led by Kyle Mckee, who interned with Tradestone Confections and has worked at Blackfish, Vedge, Birch (Nordic cuisine) and managed Ten Prime Steak & Sushi in Rhode Island.
Mckee shared that his plan for Tradestone Cafe is to offer approachable dishes, but add something innovative to them. For example, the roast beef sandwich (pictured above), is topped with carrot sauerkraut. He wants dishes you enjoy eating but prepared in a way that you can’t find anywhere else.
As we mentioned above, he previously worked at Vedge, so he is planning some vegan dishes. Tradestone Cafe is already pressing its own juices every day.
He is also planning to return to Tradestone Cafe’s roots, by bringing back house-made pastries and bread. This will include the popular biscuits.
Tradestone serves coffee from Vibrant, a Philadelphia-based roaster. According to Vibrant, it roasts bright and striking coffees on the most modern roaster on the market today, the fluid bed Loring S15 Falcon. It is currently a wholesale only operation but is working on opening a cafe in the city. Vibrant’s Ethiopia Idido Organic is a Finalist in the 2019 Good Food Awards (results are going to be announced this weekend).
Italian Pork Sandwich
From Tradestone Cafe’s menu, the Italian pork sandwich features braised pork shoulder marinated in Italian herbs and spices. On the sandwich, you will find roasted tomato, apple chutney, arugula, and provolone. It is served on multigrain and prepared on a panini press.
Breakfast currently consists of traditional breakfast sandwiches offered on croissants, English muffins, and bagels.
There are also coconut chia bowls with fruit and flavored with vanilla and honey.
Tradestone Cafe offers salads, parfaits, fruits cups, and a couple different sandwiches via its grab-and-go cooler.
Tradestone Cafe’s hours are currently 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
