Have yet to be crossed!

We go here fairly often for breakfast and find it consistently fresh and well-prepared. The menu has many offerings and the daily specials are numerous and creative. The one criticism is the crowded conditions on the weekends. Staff is superb.

We were visiting Doylestown for summer vacation and there were four kids and three adults in our party. We entered the restaurant 45 minutes before closing and comments were made by the staff who were put off by the size of our group. We were seated and when we placed our order, only one person in our party could get... More

The parking lot is alway busy, but I don't like the food and I think the prices are too high for s "dinner" that is in a house. Maybe I am wrong but I had a poor substitute for a pancake and another time I had an omlette that thought could have been tastier. But maybe it is just me... More

We stopped in for lunch today. We've been here before and find the hometown atmosphere to be the biggest appeal. My cheeseburger was okay but didn't have much flavor. My husband's reuben was good but it fell apart so that he had to use a knife and fork. The acoustics are terrible so it was annoyingly noisy. Our servers were... More

A terrific breakfast this morning. Great service, rye toasted that was buttered just right and a Paul bunyon omelet that was superb. Glad to have found this diner.

This is a little hometown diner where you can get an amazing breakfast. They use really fresh ingredients and the food is delicious. They always have specials but they run out if you don't get there early. Their cornmeal pancakes are my favorite but they are not always available. If you want a delicious, hearty breakfast in a casual environment,... More

Large portions and tasty, well priced dishes continue to encourage folks to wait on lines which spill out the front door onto the porch on the weekends, attesting to the popularity of this Doylestown institution. Located in an older home on the outskirts of town, Cross Keys embraces a vintage charm, with Formica tabletops, vinyl covered stools and simple decor... More

I am surprised to see good reviews for Cross Keys Diner. The day I was there the food was horrible, over cooked and flavorless. 5 out 6 items on the Special Menu were not available, so settled for a hamburger. I received a flavorless burger that would not even stay together and would only crumble apart. I had to eat... More

Not overly excited. Not a bad place, just fell below my expectations. I have been in for breakfast three times and lunch twice inthe last three years but I seem to leave with the same feelings regarding the restaurant.
