A nice little diner with good value and good food. The service is good and the place does a great business on the weekends.

I was in Erie for a wedding and had the opportunity to look for a local breakfast joint. I almost succumbed to the convenience of Perkins. But so so glad that I did not. This is a hot local spot. When I asked the waitress if I should do the eggs Benedict special or one other menu item she said... More

Been awhile and better than ever. Maybe to coincide with the Polish festival, they featured a Polish breakfast. Eggs, kielbasa, potato-filled pierogies, and toast. Delicious. Throw in a complimentary sampling of corned beef hash and we waddled out. Nice folks, great food, local ambiance. Don't miss it!

Passing through, we decided to stop in Erie to look at the lake and get breakfast. Avanti's was just around the corner and had good reviews, so we stopped in. This is clearly a place where locals go and are known by the staff -- but as out-of-owners we were welcomed with open arms. Once I heard that the corned... More

We went to Avanti's after the manager of another restaurant recommended this place to have breakfast. We requested a place where the locals would go. I give it 4 stars for 2 reasons: Orange Juice was not freshly squeezed and , they had not croissants. Besides that it was a great omelette shade with real eggs. Great hash-browns. We decided...

I got the French toast with blue berries and it was really good. It wasn't too dry or too mushy either. The service was great and they were very nice. Be sure to check it out if your in the mood for a local casual breakfast or lunch.

It was its usual busy pace but we found a table for four. I tried something totally new: Corned Beef Hash because I had always wondered what it was . It arrived with 3 perfectly cooked eggs on top, hash browns and toast . It was loaded with the beef. What made it perfect was the lack of heavy salt.... More

Visited this place today. We were seated and got our drinks in a timely manner. The waitress came and took our order, Meatball omlet, hashbrowns, italian toast, which took 40 mins to come out. We watched 4 other tables that came after us recieve their meals. Finally the food came out, greasy hashbrowns, dry toast, and a meat ball omlet... More
