Had breakfast here, while seated at the counter. It was the BEST blueberry pancake ever! Enough to share, and pure heaven when accompanied by bacon and maple syrup. People line up and wait, (but not too long), and it is well worth your time. Good...More

Great service ....delicious wholesome food ...I had the special which was a handmade cheeseburger with fries...the bread was fresh as well as the fixings. The burger was perfectly grilled. The fries were thin cut and fried perfectly. I definitely will return.

The only meal I have ever eaten is breakfast Very reliable for all breakfast staples- pancakes French toast omelets. Break fast meats -sausage and bacon are excellant. Very efficient and friendly service from the Amish and Mennonite waitresses Very reasonable prices.

Located at the Reading Terminal Market. Simple, counter service. Not a luxurious joint but they serve the best breakfast in Downtown Philadelphia. Huge portions, good for sharing. Servers are amish and very friendly.
