We stopped in to Crown Railroad Cafe for a late dinner and were very satisfied with our experience. The restaurant was going to close for the day in 30 minutes but we never felt rushed or unwelcome. The waitress was very friendly and kept our glasses full. I ordered the fish and chips and it was delicious. The waitress offered... More

My wife and I had breakfast here yesterday. It was a great experience. I have some stomach issues and can't eat certain spices. I explained to Kayla our server what my issues were and she was great. Kayla was able to answer all my questions. I have always enjoyed trains so all the train models and photos made our breakfast... More

One of us had breakfast here at about 9:00 AM on a March Saturday. The Cafe had a pleasant buzz and all of the customers seemed to be in an upbeat mood. The coffee was served right after seating, good and refilled regularly. A free traveler was also included after breakfast (always appreciated). The décor is pretty standard for Route... More

Our family favorite for over 15 years! The food on the menu is always awesome, portions are more than generous and the owner, John Cavollo, can give you any information you could possibly need about the surrounding area while keeping you laughing. Local's tip? Order off the hand written menu.

Stopped by for a late dinner and the food was excellent and in huge portions. The diner was cute and had a train my kids enjoyed watching.

The food was excellent and it was a reminder of how food was back in the good old days. It had a train that went around the restaurant which was fun to admire and it was also fun to see how each table was named after a railroad company.

We had breakfast one day, dessert the next, and dinner on another day at this quaint and nostalgic restaurant. Breakfast was classic bacon & eggs fare which was excellent. Though the pie selection was limited, the cherry pie had a fine, home-made crust and was delicious. For dinner, my wife had Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti, and I opted for the... More

Pleasantly surprised by the omelettes. Large party had several plates and all were decent. No frills - just your regular truck stop type atmosphere.

We decided to check out this restaurant since we love trains. There was a good sized model train running around the top of the restaurant on a track - but that was the only good thing in the place. The menu looked promising but after ordering our food we waited and waited even though people that had ordered around us... More
