Bagel du Jour Bistro, which opened this month at Tilghman Square in South Whitehall, serves fresh, healthful salads, soups and sandwiches.
Looking for an authentic French croissant in the Lehigh Valley? How about a New York bagel? And a healthy lunch? Look no further than Bagel du Jour Bistro, which opened earlier this month at 4620 Broadway in the Tilghman Square shopping center in South Whitehall.

"I'm passionate about food and people," Sylla said. Sylla said his dream …

New high-end women's fashion shop in the Tilghman Square shopping center in South Whitehall promises international flair.
A posh new store, promising some of Europe’s finest fashions, purses and jewelry, pays homage to three generations of women who love to dress well.
