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.

Great breakfast! Very reasonable prices, good pancakes, great specials (pumpkin pancakes, along with others) and good coffee. Waitress was nice and our food came out quickly. Just for info, they only take cash or check. No credit. We will go back soon!

A friend and I had breakfast at Fay's this past Saturday (7/16). My first time there, but it won't be my last! Oh my word, the food was so GOOD! We shared the Vegetable Breakfast Skillet, with toast and biscuits. There was a lot of food on that skillet--enough to fill 2 grown women. The biscuits were delicious!! I'd love... More

Used to eat here all the time, would specifically go in for the Hawaiian pancakes. Went a few weeks ago and was pretty disappointed. They are very unorganized when busy, messing up the wait list, forgetting about tables and confused food orders. And the food just doesn't taste the same. However the prices are great, and they do try. Just... More
