Despite the trains whizzing past the nearby Philadelphia-bound platform of the historic Wayne Train Station, Fabio and Danny's Cafe serves as a tranquil oasis. The aromas of roasting espresso and La Colombe coffee fill the space as diners savor their soup or commuters grab a sandwich stuffed with Boar's Head meats. On Friday nights, the space hosts a hearty Italian BYOB dinner to complement live music from harpists or local bands.
The café's intimate atmosphere and penchant for live entertainment have earned it praise in the Philadelphia Inquirer as well as the much-coveted number 42 slot on Santa Claus's Nice List. But the café's commitment to art extends beyond music; the fine paintings and works on display become the focus at monthly artists' receptions, and performers lead family-friendly singing and storytelling events every Wednesday morning.
