Imagine walking into a perfectly curated shop full of modern-farm decor and specialty items. Now add a greenery complete with bonfire and a full restaurant with greenhouse dining room and coffee bar serving delicious eats and drinks. Well, then you’ve found my version of heaven also know as Terrain.
Located in Glen Mills, PA, Terrain is part of the URBN company and the Anthropologie brand. The flagship location was founded in 2008 and was opened on the site of the historic J. Franklin Styer’s Nursery. Since its opening, additional locations have opened in California, Maryland and Connecticut.
“We are inspired by the idea of merging house and garden to create an immersive natural experience and an environment where our customers can come to unwind, explore, and celebrate occasions big and small.”
I absolutely love poking around the different shop sections of Terrain, but I never fail to either enjoy a coffee and pastry or brunch whenever I head to this spot. The rustic decor and menu featuring local foods make it perfection.
What I Ate:
Hazelnut Cafe Au Lait
Omelette with gruyere and leeks with a side of simple salad and roasted potatoes and peppers
Side of thick-cut bacon
My dining choices are basically my ideal breakfast. I mean, who doesn’t like gruyere and bacon. Be warned a side of bacon is actually almost a full pound of bacon! I thankfully had a friend dining with me (who ordered the burger) and he was able to help out. The omelette was soft and perfectly seasoned and the cafe au lait was a nice sweet addition.
Once you’re done eating, go explore the different shop sections which include health and beauty, food, housewares, accessories, gifts, travel goods and garden decor. Then when you venture outside, be prepared to be surrounded by green and nature. You can poke around the trees, the beautiful wreaths or enjoy hot cocoa at one of the bonfires. It’s absolute heaven.
“From diverse native plants, hand-picked planters and all-weather furniture to seasonal décor, outdoor lighting and gifts for every occasion, terrain blurs the line between life lived outside and in.”
Some pro tips:
Make a reservation. The restaurant fills up quickly (especially on the weekends) and you’ll be in for quite the wait.
There are huge parking lots, so make sure you go over to the larger side lot.
You can get hot cocoa and s’mores to enjoy at one of the outdoor bonfires (visit the cafe).
It’s the perfect spot for a cute family photo (just in case you still need that Holiday card photo).
You can order pastries and pies to go either in-person or on the phone.
Finally, looking for some curated housewares, you can shop online here!
Terrain is a spot that is meant to be visited and enjoyed over and over. Headed there? I’d love to hear what you think! Feel free to hop over to Instagram and comment on the coordinating posts.
