COLLEGEVILLE ITALIAN BAKERY
TripAdvisor's No. 1 restaurant in Collegeville, the Collegeville Italian Bakery is famous for its pizza - more than 50 varieties. But that's just the beginning. Everything on the sandwich menu - and it is extensive - is served on the bakery's homemade rolls.

TORTUGAS MEXICAN EATERY
Always arrive at Tortugas Mexican Eatery with an empty stomach. The portions here are very generous. Meat-lovers will appreciate the carne asada, which is an actual serving of real steak and not some previously frozen pre-chopped cut of unknown origin.

From drunken noodles to pho, Thai Basil Bistro has a tantalizing variety. Many would argue the true star of the menu is the homemade taro ice cream, so make sure to save room for dessert.
