Hotels are almost full. Restaurants have been told they will get emergency deliveries. Pilgrims will not sleep on dirty sheets or be denied the fare of one of the country's hottest dining cities. The papal panic that gripped Philadelphia's commercial class just a few weeks ago, in light of severe security restrictions, has receded. With just two days to go before Pope Francis begins the weekend's celebrations, the mood is all smiles, if also some nerves. "The hotels are happy," Ed Grose, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association, said Wednesday.

GEORGE BEATO, an Army veteran of World War II, was delivering pies in Fairmount for a baking company after the war when he made an observation that would change his life: The blue-collar neighborhood had practically no sandwich shops. George decided he would remedy that deficiency. He borrowed $500 from a butcher with whom he had become friendly, and in 1954 opened Beato's Pizza, on Parrish Street. George Beato, who died Sept. 16 at age 91, almost immediately won the hearts of fellow business people and the hard-working folks in blue-collar Fairmount with his ebullient personality, his wit and his generosity.

On Norristown's Main Street, where development is patchy and restaurants have opened and closed at warp speed, some are questioning the municipality's decision to subsidize another eatery. In February, the council approved a $160,000 grant to renovate the first floor of 9 W. Main St. into a sit-down soul food restaurant. The space formerly housed a cafe called Maddy's. The restaurant, Diva's Kitchen, had been operating a more takeout-oriented business on West Johnson Highway. In July, the council increased the grant to $250,000 and reduced the scope of work.

Tucked away in an Abington shopping center, the Corner Cafe is surrounded by construction and renovations. Inside, its staff continues serving food and greeting diners by name. Regular customers fill the green booths and tables, against the backdrop of a mural depicting breakfast and lunch dishes.

" But the end may be in sight for the local cafe, frequented daily by dozens of loyal customers, many of them older Montgomery County residents.

Papal visit security measures are causing a giant case of heartburn among restaurateurs, cafe owners, and even operators of Reading Terminal Market, the very businesses that are among Philadelphia's most celebrated amenities and tourist draws. With inbound vehicles barred and public transit sharply curtailed for the better part of three days when Pope Francis visits next month, the eateries that normally thrive on big crowds are struggling to figure out how to stay open and have enough food and workers to function.
