Hummelatown locals breakfast place.

If you want the Ritz Carlton then stay out of Bill's. But if you want a good down home breakfast for a great price, stop in. Be aware its full of friendly locals and can get loud with laughter.

Join the cast of regulars in this restaurant where time has stood still. It is conveniently located at the town square on Main Street, with parking in back, if you can't snag a spot out front on the street. The Dutch Omelet costs less than $4.00 and is served up hot and fresh. It's actually eggs, potatoes and onions all... More

I grew up in Hummelstown and remember going to eat at Bill's as a child. Now I bring my kids to the restaurant, which has been on the square in Main Street for more than 40 years. They keep it simple and are attracting a new generation of regulars who appreciate the conversation-friendly atmosphere and homestyle cooking. Breakfast is an... More

Walk right past this place and go somewhere else. They haven't caught up with the rest of the world yet and the food and service was below par. There are many other options on the same block and across the street!

This looks like a greasy spoon, and it may be but the breakfasts are great! The prices are really great too! It is definitely a place where local people from Hummelstown go. Bill's usually closes around 2 pm so is mainly a breakfast and lunch place.

I have no idea how Bill makes any money with the circa 1970s prices. Breakfast here is phenomenal, if you go somewhere else you've made a mistake. My personal favorite is the eggs benedict. Not only are the prices just silly, you can skip lunch after a breakfast here. Its just a great lucheonette-style place.

Amazingly inexpensive breakfast: $14 for three adults, including side dishes! Breakfast doesn't have to be unique, but cheap makes it worth going out for! And who knew everyone here was Greek!
