This is now my favorite place in Williamsport -- okay there aren't that many places in Williamsport, but still. It's a small, eclectic coffee shop and cafe, set up close enough to the C&O canal to provide an awesome resting and refueling place for hikers and bikers. It also provides a great place to eat and visit for locals. Rose,... More

Decided to stop for a quick snack at the Desert Rose Cafe while biking the C&O Canal Trail and ended up staying for an hour. The baked goods were great, but it was the friendly staff that really made an impression. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and seemed genuinely interested in making a... More

We hiked the C&O Canal Trail recently and stopped in at the Desert Rose Cafe for lunch. Our dog, who also hiked, was allowed to sit with us our outside table. (No dogs inside though). That was a big plus. The service was friendly. The food was good. I enjoyed the seasonal pumpkin soup. Would recommend if you are in... More

You have to stop by and have breakfast or lunch here. Excellent atmosphere, good value, great food and wide selection of coffee beverages. Very close to the Canal trail, in the center of the old town. The Red Rood Inn is just another 1/3 mile up US 11 if you’re staying the night in town. Check out their baked goods.... More

We've gotten to the point of preferring places other than chains when we can find well prepared food. Due to diet needs, we need foods more free of additives. We were pleasantly impressed with the cozy, casual atmosphere and friendly service as well as the food we had. Service was quick and efficient and the food was both tasty and... More

I'm bicycling from DC to Pittsburgh and stopped at the Desert Rose Cafe (up the slight incline) in downtown Williamsport. What an excellent place to relax and replenish. There are plenty of bike racks and Rose (server/owner) and Alan (chef) are very accommodating, inviting and entertaining. It is worth a stop.
