BACK AGAIN. Return trip is probably the BEST review one can give. I Love the food, the coffee, but mostly the people who work in this place. It is a quick ride up the hill from the C & O Canal if you are hiking or biking and see the big Cushwa basin and Conococheague aqueduct. They even re-fill your... More

We were about to sit in comfy lounge chairs for a late night lite dinner. The food was simple, but delicious. We enjoyed talking with the owners and other guests. What a relaxed feeling!

Stopped here for lunch after long 40 mile bike ride on the nearby C& O Canal. Great food (try their BLT), Great service, and a laid-back atmosphere. They even offered up ice water to fill our water bottles for the rest of the ride! Prices very reasonable with a varied menu. You will not be disappointed.

Desert Rose,, convenient off the first two exits on I-81 after crossing north over the Potomac River, this very friendly cafe, sandwich and sweet shop also offers great coffee choices. My favorite is the Breakfast Croissant Sandwich, since I am an early bird. But great lunches of home made soup and sandwiches with your choice of yogurt, chips, or veggies... More

Desert Rose is a sweets and sandwich shop in Williamsport. We picked up sandwiches for the following day's travels. Rose was helpful and friendly and the food was delicious and packaged well for travel.

Stopped here on our bike trip. Great sandwiches that included yogurt! Very accommodating to bikers. Filled our water bottles and we packed muffins and brownies to take with us on trail.

Can't rave enough about Desert Rose Cafe. Love the black bean burger and the gazpacho soup! My favorite place to stop and have a delicious meal in a quaint comfortable atmosphere. This is a great place to go off the beaten path. Williamsport is a lovely little town without a lot of history, great eateries, C&O Canal, biking, and Byron... More

Stopped in here for lunch on day 2 of the trip down from Cumberland. Lunch was great. Had a turkey bacon spinach wrap. It was very good. The staff was friendly and offered to fill any water bottles we had. I was glad we lucked into this place. I was with a group and all enjoyed the lunch. Reasonable prices.
