Don't bother eating here if you want a quick bite. We went on a Monday at 2:00, and we were literally the only people eating there to dine in the cafe other than a few people who wanted some ice cream. It took 45 minutes for a Rueben and a Stromboli to hit our table. The food was average, and... More

Man you must have had a bad day. Sorry for your impression but as you can see others do not feel the same way,, your stromboli actually took 20 minutes and we even jumped it ahead in line cause you were in a hurry, it also has the longest cook time at 15 minutes. we make all of our food... More

We were on our way to Hershey Pantry and happened to see a sign on the side of the road that said Phillip Arthur's cafe. We made it to the Pantry and it was PACKED! Decided to try this little cafe and so glad we did! We both had western omelettes and our daughter had blueberry pancakes. All of them... More

yes we are glad you found us, that is the challenge we are hidden, dont really advertise alot and only have one or 2 staff at breakfast, more like stumbling into our house which is the way we like to keep it, not commercial but fun. We have Feniccis next door to keep us busy running!!! More

This is a great little place right across from the Hershey Story that a friend had told me about!! It was such a nice change of pace from the crowds and lines of the park! Food was awesome-quick service and a ton of variety & fair prices-highly recommend!! Thanks Madi, Becca & Austin for the great experience

I see why this place is rated so highly! We went for a early lunch. We were greeted warmly by the staff. There are lots of choices for everyone. Salads, chicken fingers, fries, wraps and steak sandwiches. I watched them accommodate a woman who had a gluten allergy. She brought in her own bread. Not only were they more than... More

We happened to be in Hershey for the day and went to PA's based on their #1 rating and we wanted a non chain restaurant after visiting the Hershey plant. They are exactly as I would picture a family sandwich and Ice cream shop. We were greeted by Heather, Pat and others who basically took the opportunity to say hi... More

We stopped here based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. I wouldn't say we were disappointed, but I don't think it lived up to #1 status either. We got sandwiches for lunch, which took an exorbitantly long time to get. It was semi-busy, but there were multiple tables open. We got a panini, a turkey special, and a grilled cheese... More

Growing up in Philly I am a bit of a steak sandwich snob. These are the best you can get here in Chocolate town.

Ended up here for lunch after reading TA reviews. Not disappointed. Ordered a turkey/Brie/apple sandwich and tried their upside down pizza. The pizza was great! Cheese on the crust and topped with sauce. The service was extremely friendly. Will go back if ever again in Hershey.

We found this place from reviews and ended up eating here twice in our two days in Hershey. The first night my wife and i went in at 8 PM for a quick dinner after driving 14 hours from Missouri. They were super friendly and make us two great sandwiches. They weren't just basic subs - they were definitely fresh... More
