Good Breakfast Place in Erie

My husband and I were looking for a different place to eat a late breakfast and I remembered seeing this place many times when we visited Erie so we decided to give it a try. It was on a Sunday around lunch time so it was very busy and we waited a little less than a half hour for a... read more

Went to Breakfast Place (E 38th St.) this morning...first, the newspaper machine had papers in it but it would not open despite trying 3 times to deposit 4 quarters. Second, and please don't ask why I even bothered to stay, except to say that I was hungry, but the whole place smelled like a male cat had sprayed in there...WTH?!... More

OMG! This is truly the only place in Erie to enjoy a real, country breakfast, with all the trimmings. Unfortunately, I only discovered it recently, but I'm working hard to catch up for lost time. The biscuits and gravy are amazing, The eggs and corned beef hash will make you cry for joy, and the large selection of breakfast combinations... More

The only positive about this place is that it is inexpensive. It is always busy, but not worth the wait. The food is mediocre at best.

Breakfast was enjoyable! I had a half frittata which was huge!!! I left half of it on my plate! I liked it overall but did not care for the type of potatoes they had in it. The french toast was terrific! Liked the atmosphere and the waitress was really nice. Overall, it was a super breakfast! Go hungry because the... More

This was our first time but won't be our last. Let me start by saying the staff is incredible. Friendly and attentive. They are very busy but have plenty of staff to keep customers happy. My husband ordered the frittata and it was a huge portion and he loved it. I ordered the Italian breakfast and was a little bit... More

Not realizing there were 2 locations, we followed GPS to Peach St location. We ate breakfast here on a late Sat morning. Parking was crowded & we waited about 5 min for a table. The place is large with table, booth or counter seating. Once seated, service was quick & friendly. Coffee cups are small & required waitress attention to... More

I've been here before without incident, but that was in 2012 and 2013. Today's "frittata" serving was very disappointing. Mushy, discolored potatoes with green/red peppers in the same condition indicate old and/or frozen, reused ingredients. The staff was friendly and accommodating, which allows for the extra point. Otherwise this experience would have been 1/5.

Not the cleanest place. Best pancakes around. Delicious food, staff is very nice. They do a nice job getting people in and out in a timely manner.

I have eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. It's a great place to grab breakfast or a late brunch. Very big food portions. I personally didn't care for the orange juice, but that definitely didn't take away from the food.
