24 hour diner

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Can't say about dinner, I've never been. Food is consistently good, service very friendly.

I enjoy coming here for a good rubin Sandwich. The service seems to be good and the cleanliness and hospitality of the staff is great. They do seem to run a bit short handed at times leading to an increased wait for your order but I feel everything else makes up for it.

The Ephrata Diner is a great place to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We love the layout of comfortable, private booths. The food is great and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. The homemade baklava is sensational. Eating here is always a treat.

Went to the Ephrata diner recently for breakfast. Service was good, big portion, food was good. I can't really say anything bad but it's just your typical diner. There isn't usually a wait which is a plus. Would eat there again.

Fantastic menu - breakfast served all day -- pancakes the size of dinner plates! -- really good coffee! Helpful waitresses. Reasonable prices, too.

We ate at the Ephrata Diner on our way out of town. The food was great, coffee strong and robust, and the service was good! I had an omelet breakfast with a side of corn beef hash! It was excellent. My wife and mother-in-law enjoyed their respective dishes. I would love to try the dinner selections there.
