Wow! What a little gem, Central Lunch in old Weissport. A definite hole in the wall Linda place, a giant leap back in time, favorite haunt of Carbon County locals and a am good breakfast. Mostly counter seating, elbow to elbow, watching of the kitchen workings on mother and daughters. Service was warm, friendly and attentive. Offer good, and hot. Food.....great and fresh. The two egg fried egg sandwich was spot on! The scrapple omelet was flavorful, crispy where it should have and soft and melts everywhere else. Home fries are real, not frozen, and properly griddle fried (not dropped into the deep fryer. Yep, a blast from the past, not for everyone, but if you have a yen for an all American classic experience, it's waiting for you here!

This place is OK but very small. The food was ok but we won't be going back. It is more of a local hang out. There are too many other good places to eat around there.

Inexpensive yet great food and the most down to earth people you could ever meet. I stop in here for breakfast when I go hiking the Weissport Trail or fishing at the canal. My favorite is something called the mess. A family institution passed on through the years. It reminds you of bygone days a scene straight out of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes right at the railroad tracks.

Great no frills food, truly friendly staff and fair prices...what more could you ask for? Sure, this place could use a remodel/update, but they are doing it right at Central Lunch!
