If you’re in the mood for something slightly more eastern, The Fig Cafe offers Egyptian dinners, treats and hookah to set the mood. Tiffin, cooks and plates Indian cuisine for those that want to adventure over to the spicier side of flavor. Speaking of the spicier side, Senor Salsa presents its patrons with south of the border meals like burritos, tacos, fajitas and quesadillas.


Entertainment is easy to find in Abington as well. The Hiway Theatre is a beautiful remnant from an era passed that shows one film a night. The Jenkintown Music Theatre is a perfect place to experience the glory of the stage on a small scale.  The Keswick Theatre, on the other hand, features a touring musician, comedian or other production nearly every night of the week.
