• The coffee isn’t ready, but the beans are roasting. Chadds, a new coffee shop soon to open in the Barn Shops, was giving a hint of what’s to come last Saturday during an open house at the Chadds Ford landmark. Pam Lau, formerly of Talula’s Table, said she’ll be baking scones and other sweet treats once the shop officially opens at the end of July. She said the sweets will offer a contrast to the Romano’s Original Stromboli that will also be available. Chadds is scheduled to open at the end of July.
