In quiet Dallastown, Pa., check out these signs of change

The opening of the Krua Thai Cafe signals change in Dallastown. First, it’s a productive reuse of an older building – a former bank building. Notice the neat effect of the vault in the background. The exit of the bank from Dallastown several years ago was lamented by some. It was then Dallastown’s only bank. Further, this is probably the first exclusively Thai cuisine to be offered from an eatery in the borough, showing the changing tastes of a changing population and Dallastown and that southeastern York County region that was historically Pennsylvania Dutch. (See a picture of the cafe’s exterior below and additional photos in this gallery).
