About Us

Located in the heart of the Main Line across the street from the Wayne train station, making it convenient for a trip into Philadelphia or making us a destination for coming out of Philadelphia. Teresa's Cafe opened in 1997 beginning the restaurant explosion in Wayne. Starting as a byob Italian restaurant and now with a full bar featuring extensive lists of wine, craft ales, craft sprints, keg tails (stop by and ask) and now barrel aged cocktails. 

We recently refreshed our dining room to add in the small bar area and to add sound absorbing material to the dining room. It is no longer a loud restaurant you will be amazed by the difference. All work was done by our friend at Anthony Rullo Designs and we sourced local soapstone for all the tables and bar top. All the table bases were made by Anthony's brother Rullo Custom Cycles, yes a motorcycle shop, if you don't know us we like motorcycles and cars also. All our lights are now led bulbs. We sourced cork for our walls and local slate for our floors, original French made Tolix chairs, ok they were not local. We are still working with a local designer on more additions to the dining room and trying to not interrupt our extensive sound absorbing material, look for more changes coming soon.  

Stop by and have a meal or a snack and a drink outside under our awnings and outdoor tables while you watch life in Wayne go by. 

Our menu has recently had some renovations also. Yes we took off some old favorites but don't you want new things in life? We now feature all handmade pastas, all desserts are my by our pastry chef, we still have our hand stretched pizzas now made in the kitchen oven instead of out front, these are the staffs favorite meals. I would say we change our menu seasonally but actually we change when we find something we want to use, yes we do focus on seasonal foods, but mainly on our own tastes. We even have our own in house forager, to find new local vegetables. Yes we do serve vegetables and vegetarian items.  Our menu is constantly changing we are foodies at heart. We vacation (or we like to call it a business trip) based around what food or drinks we haven't seen yet. Or we go back to places we love to see and visit past and current friends in the business. Our last big "vacation" was a trip to France and Belgium. This year we are focusing on Kentucky (for bourbon) and Oregon (for pinot noir). We are constantly tasting wines for our ever changing glass and bottle list. And we do as much staff training as we can fit in our schedules sometimes we make special events around our staff training such as our last World Whiskey Day.
