A local recommended this place when we stumbled into the Reading Terminal Market looking for breakfast. Yes, there's usually a short line/wait, but it moves quickly. Go here for pancakes or french toast, coffee and oj, and you'll be warmed up and ready for any conference or sightseeing. And the service is friendly and fast! Loved this place, ate here... More

An absolute favorite in the Reading Terminal Market. Whether you're going for breakfast or lunch, always quality, fresh food. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. Last couple of visits, we had to wait but not for more than 10 minutes or so. You won't go away hungry. They have their own-made strawberry jam/spread for your toast...mmm. Enjoy!

RUN to this place! Was drawn to it after seeing a huge crowd days earlier, and had to hit this place up for breakfast. Their menu is standard diner fare with generous portions and great prices (3 people ate for ~$20). Service is super friendly (shout out to Ruth Ann!) as are most of the patrons. Get there early or...

My coworkers and I were looking for a good lunch spot near the convention center and were delighted when the Dutch Eating Place experience lived up to the great online reviews. It is located within the Reading Terminal with all kinds of neat and tasty vendors and the serving style is counter height stools. We lucked out and got seats... More

The Dutch Eating Place is a fun place for a quick & tasty breakfast at a good price. It's a diner-style breakfast counter where you sit on a bar stool in the very interesting Reading Terminal Market while the Amish sling great food out of the kitchen. My breakfast was delicious, although I got the impression from looking at the... More

This place is located inside the market, you've got a big counter where the ladies will bring you your order. It's very busy but they're pretty fast. Food is good and you've got much choice. I personally tried scrambled eggs and turkey sausage, quite tasty. The only thing is that the eggs came as an omelette on the plate instead... More

This place was pretty busy, just two seats left and we grabbed them for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly. They don't rush you. The breakfast menu was extensive and it came out quickly. Great food and service!

Thank TKrieg
