Haddon Avenue in Collingswood Has Main Street Charm
Lined with great restaurants, shops, and entertainment, and is easily accessible by car and rail. We invite you to take a tour of this wonderful town while sampling global flavors along the way. Prepare your palate for delicious traditional and modern Indian Cuisine. You’ll also have an opportunity to eat fresh, chef-prepared food from the newest “kid on the block”, Haddon Culinary. We’ll whisk you away, just several blocks down the road, to taste the flavors of Mexico in several authentic handcrafted dishes. Next, enjoy a unique tasting experience of international olive oils and vinegars. Stop by a modern patisserie for a bite and a bakery lesson from the pastry chef. If you like nostalgic candy and chocolate indulgence, you won’t want to miss this candy shop visit of sweet heaven.
