A cute little stop along the way. If you are passing through Bedford it makes a good photo opportunity. There is a plaque with some history on it.

this is Americana at its best - what a cool spot. Easy to miss, so stay on the lookout. It's located just outside of Bedford (East side.

This is a perfect piece of Roadside America - there is a bit of history involved in these buildings - worth checking out! Recommended in conjunction with visiting the old Gas Station - check them out!

An interesting piece of Americana. Maybe just slow the car down and take a picture out of the window.

Seeing the Coffee Pot brings back thoughts of simpler times before the Interstate system changed the way we travel.Built in 1927,the 18' coffee pot was just 1 of many quirky landmarks located along historic Route 30.No longer part of a luncheonette,bar or hotel ,it was moved across the street and restored in 2003-2004.If you are close by it is worth...

I have been collecting Lefton model diners and attraction models for a while so after discovering that one of them still exists in Pennsylvania we had to do a detour to visit while on our US trip from the UK and we loved it. There is not really anything to see other than the coffee pot itself but its just... More

We found some really neat little places along Route 30 on a recent trip to Bedford, including The Coffee Pot. I enjoyed reading a brief history of the building but wished I was able to go inside. It is open to visitors Monday through Friday during the day, but we happened to be there on a Sunday. Just down the... More

This cute little building was built over 50 years ago, and has been a roadstop attraction ever since. The stop itself doesn't take more than 4 minutes. If you're with family, this makes for a cute photo opp. No actual coffee served inside though.

We stopped by for a few minutes and a picture. Was really cute and only took like 5 minutes. They have a fence placed strangely so you can really get a full picture since you are too close to get a good picture...or it's in your picture. There were like hundreds of lady bugs buzzing us...which was weird. Worth finding.

Robe bikes from Bedford Springs Resort to this. Just a picture spot, no coffee. The notes say you can my knick-knacks next door, but they just had one plaque. I would love a postcard.
