After Your Photo Session: Three Local Dining Gems in Newtown, PA

Remember the time the whole family got dressed up, looked their best—and stayed home? Probably not.

Family photo sessions preserve memories. Once your photo session is over, the fun doesn’t have to end. With everyone looking their best, why not continue to build more family memories with a night out on the town?

Fortunately, you’re in the right place. Newtown, PA has been—and continues to be—one of the “coolest small towns in the nation,” according to Yahoo! Travel. Newtown’s Main Street is lined with unique shops, taverns, and restaurants, all within minutes of Heather Thomas Photography Studio.

The following family-friendly favorites will be sure to delight kids of any age — offering plenty of culinary treats for Mom and Dad, too!

Isaac Newton’s Food & Drink

Did someone say hickory smoked brisket … blackened salmon Caesar salad … craft beer?! Of the three restaurants listed here, Isaac Newton’s is the closest to Heather Thomas Photography Studio. Conveniently located right around the corner (and less than a mile) from the studio, it’s a popular post-photo-session destination. Boasting excellent service and a menu bursting with food and drink choices, it’s hard to say who will love it here more, you or the kids. With plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, Isaac Newton’s offers something for everyone.
