We enjoyed this local bakery for a hearty breakfast. My husband had a special zucchini pancake. Much of the food is locally sourced. Our server was very pleasant and appropriately refilled our coffee.

We walked in to see the place jammed with about 20 people standing and waiting for a table. My husband spotted two empty stools at the counter which we easily slid into. What a fun time watching the action as sandwiches were created, toast popped and waitresses supported one another. The food was excellent (club sandwiches and fresh cherry pie!).... More

We had breakfast here and are we glad we did. We sat at the counter and observed the friendliest wait people ever. Everything baked looked fantastic but we were trying to be healthy so we stuck to the frittata and an omelet, which were delicious. It is clean, you can get anything you want, and worth the wait. Also try... More

classic diner on Main street - crowded and busy - perfect for breakfast! The four of us had salmon hash or poached eggs and potatoes. I can tell it is a classic - been here forever....a short line waiting to get in....but the servers were quick and efficient and friendly.

We got to Lou's at about 9:00 for breakfast. The wait was really long, so one of our party waited the 20 minutes for us and called us to come when we were ready. The food was well worth the wait though. I got the Belgian Waffle and it was fantastic. Also, you must try the donuts. We got a... More

This is THE PLACE for breakfast in Hanover (maybe other meals, too, but I've only had breakfast). You have to enjoy elbow to elbow seating and a louder humdrum noise, but the food is great, and the service, too. Often will see people lined up to get in, the tell-tale sign of a popular spot.

We queued for 30 mins and the another 20 for our order to arrive. It's very authentic and a great experience,treat it as an attraction as well as a restaurant. My little Green and wife's granola, fresh fruit and Greek yogurt was ample, enabled us to share the tastes and carried us through to dinner. Becky was a very special... More

My sister and I arrived around 9:30 a.m. on a Friday morning and it was about a 20 minute wait to be seated. Even the counter was full. The wait is what I would have expected for a weekend, so having that on a Friday is indicative of Lou's popularity. Service was efficient and breakfast was great. My sister had... More

Lou's is a Hanover icon, and it would be very difficult to be disappointed in the food served for breakfast. Very efficient service.

Our group of six arrived at Lou's at prime time on a Sunday, just after church gets out and students have finally awakened... It was a beautiful fall day with warm sun and leafy colors all around, so it was no hardship to wait outside where the restaurant had arranged ready sidewalk access to coffee, donuts, muffins and coffee cake....
