Fay's is a popular breakfast spot for good reason - good coffee (in big heavy mugs), good service, and good food. Have been here a number of times - my favorite is their Eggs Benedict ..possibly the best I've ever had. When in season, it is also worth a trip just for their Pumpkin Pancakes! Atmosphere is Early Coca-Cola -... More

Anyone who is seriously surprised by their experience at Fay’s Country Kitchen just hasn’t travelled enough. It’s a fine small town eatery—perfect for breakfast with few bells and whistles beyond a solid basic menu. Places like this seem to thrive on nickel and diming customers and we suspect some of the less favorable reviews nursed grudges. We’re waiting to find... More

Stopped in for breakfast on our way to Dickinson for a swim meet. Although the place was packed there was only minimal wait for seating. Got 2 seats at the counter, then the coffee started flowing (good thing!). I ordered the special and my wife ordered the SOS. The SOS came out first, then I expected my order to come... More

The pancakes were good, the bacon crispy. Some had the omelets and thought them tasty. They also said the coffee was good

Stopped in for breakfast, nice little place in town. Quickly seated, and service was fast. Coffee was bitter, standard eggs, juice, bacon, pancakes with toast, $8. Pancakes, sub-par. All else was fine.

Ate here while visiting family in the area. Extensive menu with good specials menu. Had eggs Benedict with crab. Different but delicious if you like crab. Very busy place on the main drag.

Stopped in Fay's on a whim on our trip down to Florida. We were thoroughly delighted. I had an omelet that was delicious and my wife had an egg sandwich on a pretzel roll which seemed like it was baked on site. I would highly recommend Fay's.

Even with so many daytime eateries in Carlisle, Fay's is one of our favorites. Affordable and friendly. We can't wait for the pumpkin pancakes and waffles!

When I lived here, there would be lines out the door on weekends. I went to see what the hype was and I ordered an everything omelette to go. Although it was good, it was really expensive and they didn't give me any eating utensils. Also, they used a Walmart bag. Definitely not impressive.

Love there breakfast and you better not leave hungry. Servings are of ample size and waitresses are on the ball with your order. It gets busy the later you arrive so dont be late. lol
