Hockessin /ˈhoʊkɛsɪn/ is a census-designated place (CDP) in New Castle County, Delaware, United States. The population was 13,527 at the 2010 census. The place name may be derived from the Lenape word "hòkèsa" meaning "pieces of bark" or from a misspelling of "occasion," as pronounced by the Quakers who settled the area originally.

You can't pass this place without noticing the line of folks waiting to order and the groups who've been served, smiling as they devour the ice cream. Michoacán ice cream is a speciality south of our border and we've been able to enjoy it in Kennett now for 14 years. Friendly and very reasonably priced, a great stop on a summer day.

We make fresh ice cream right here on the farm using the milk from our 30+ Jersey cows. The Creamery, to purchase ice cream, sundaes, milkshakes and a number of other treats, is open seasonally.
Always a great family outing, Woodside Farm Creamery has a huge list of flavors. Service is friendly and enthusiastic and prices are reasonable, considering the quality of the ice cream. Don’t miss it.

Located in the heart of historic Kennett Square, Portabello's has something for everyone. Chef Owner, Brett Hulbert's menus offer tempting selections for lunch and dinner! Amazing burgers, artisan soups and sandwiches along with signature dishes which include, Firecracker Shrimp, Mushroom Crepes, Crispy Duck, Short Rib Stroganoff & Shellfish Fra diavolo! Come visit us...we look forward to cooking for you!
Like the great Michelin Starred restaurants in Europe, Portobello’s is worth a special trip - it is so outstanding. As grandfather in a three generation family celebration with seven diners, I got to taste most of the menu.
Among the starters, my favorites were the escargot, the mushroom crepe, and the mushroom soup. Since Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the world, many dishes feature mushrooms.
Among the mains, the duck and crab cake were among the best I have ever eaten. The steak was superb. Even the side dishes were interesting.
For dessert, the chocolate cake and toffee cake were big hits.
Chef Brett visits every table, interacting happily with his patrons. His wife Sandra manages the floor. Both insure that every morsel delights their diners. John was our efficient and friendly waiter. As is the case with every great restaurant, the meal is a product of caring, competent, and creative people — chef and his staff.

I first dined here roughly a year ago (click on my profile to pull up the review). Basically I said the appetizers and mains were amazing but that the desserts were a bit limited and the wine list was SEVERELY limited and not exciting. I have dined here twice in the last month and BOTH experiences were almost carbon copies of the first time! Our dishes were fabulous, the desserts were "OK" and the wine list remained uninspiring (the wines we ordered weren't bad, they just didn't match up to the great flavors on the dishes!). I would even invite William and Merry to bring me in to help tweak the list (I've been in the wine industry since the 90s). With so many flavors, the wine list almost takes away from the evening (although the cocktails were great!). We'll be back but we'll be hoping for some tweaks with the wine list and the desserts!

This is a walk-in Dunkin but parking should not be a problem - The parking lot is shared with the pizza place next door. The team inside is friendly so worth the walk-in. They have a few tables if you decide to stay in. All the regular items - good place.

And guacamole for sure. My chicken enchilada in a spicy Verde sauce was delicious. Phil's bean and chicken chimichanga was smooth and flavorful. Great prices. Carla our server was friendly and helpful. If you are in the area for Longwood Gardens, then stop here before or after. Moi delicious.

After a lovely holiday visit to chilly Longwood Gardens, we used Trip Advisor to find a recommendation for dinner in Kennett Square. Lily's was definitely the perfect choice. They seated us quickly, without a reservation. The menu was somewhat eclectic, though all in the Asian portfolio. My guest ordered filet mignon teriyaki (which was cooked perfectly, and came with a great mix of fresh vegetables). I had Bang Bang crisp shrimp, with honey walnuts. Again, the flavors were spot on, ingredients fresh and portions generous. I would highly recommend this venue, but bring your own wine if that is something you enjoy with dinner.

I had chicken Marsala and my son fried chicken. Both were really good and would recommend. The cornbread rocked, really moist. The banana pudding was really tasty and defiantly homemade. I thought the green beans were ok didn't taste fresh more like frozen and the mac and cheese was good but not the best I've had. Not really cheese. I would go back for sure to try other dishes.

Had 7 very good dinners the other night. All the food came out just as we ordered. Steak cooked just right, jumboli was very tasty just spicy enough. The short ribs was cooked just right and very tasty. The drinks where made with just amount of liquor. Coffee was made fresh and the water glasses where filled as needed. Service was excellent we will be going back real soon. A real treat

Excellent food. Very slow service. The experienced waitstaff was very friendly and efficient. The newer staff not so much. Two hours for a main course hamburger was a bit long of a wait. The pork belly was delicious and perfectly cooked. The pumpkin mushroom soup never disappoints. We dined on a weeknight and knew they would not be busy, so I didn't make a reservation. We were promptly seated by the bathrooms and server area....
