Located in the Chester County airport, this neat little restaurant is located with views of the runway (get a window seat). Lots of private plane taking off and landing on a Saturday,which offers an interesting backdrop to lunch. The sandwiches were very good and better than I expected. Fun décor with aeronautical models and pictures. Recommended

Get there early for a weekend breakfast to get a window seat- if you or your kids are interested in airplanes, it's a great spot. :)

Great little cafe located right in the Chester County small airport; watch planes land and take-off; wonderful French Onion Soup and Steak sandwiches. Small cozy bar. Local hang-out. During breakfast heard the tower speakers for an incoming plane. Decor: plane photos and large mdoel airplanes. Kids get a kick out of them.

Stopped in with friends as we were riding motorcycles to the American Helicopter Museum. Thought we'd keep the theme going. Really cool to sit and eat and watch the planes roll in and out. At the time we went they were doing breakfast so that's what we had. Nothing fancy but the food and the prices were very good. Place... More

This is a really near place to take the kids...especially in nice weather. The restaurant is right next to the runway at the Chester County Airport so the kids can watch the planes take off & land. They love it along with all the great big models of all the old planes hanging from the ceiling. All that and terrific... More

I have always enjoyed lunches here, close to the runways so you can see take-offs and landings. Food has always been good pub fare, service is as yoould like it, attentive but not overbearing. A good place to relax.

From time to time I meet a friend here on Wednesday night for half-price wings and the best onion soup ever. This little gem also has good burgers, Reubens and BLTs at lunh time. Service is always friendly and efficient. I haven't had an entree type evening meal here. Added bonus is being able to watch the planes and helicopters... More
