I stopped at Yoder’s while exploring Amish Country. Since I just went to the gift shop I can’t comment on the meals. But, I highly recommend the baked goods...especially the cookies.

Not extensive, but worth it alone for the fried chicken. Also excellent bbq beef. Chicken and noodles somewhat disappointing. Also included a decent spaghetti and meat sauce. To finish, some nice desserts, but no pies. Service was charming.

I have not eaten breakfast there, so I am not sure. I checked their website and it indicates Friday and Saturday from 7-10:30 am. Hope this helps.
