Food is decent, service is not

There were five people at the restaurant when I went. That includes me. I sat outside. Ordered coffee. Got a cup of black coffee. Had to ask for a spoon, sugar and cream, which all came separately. Eventually got a napkin. I ordered and waited. And waited. Finally, the breakfast came. Ten... read more

We ate at Through the Looking Glass for lunch today and were very pleased with the venue. Very eclectic with numerous Alice in Wonderland items and a wealth of other items on display. I had a portobello mushroom salad with sun dried tomatoes and my wife had their chicken salad. Both of our meals were delicious and the portions were... More

My wife and I stopped by this restaurant this week after a bike ride in the Jim Thorpe area. We were split between this and another restaurant in the area. Through the Looking Glass had a better selection for my wife so we chose here. There was an outdoor seating area, which was clean and roomy, but was not going... More

I over heard the boss being very rude to the employee's. I will not be going again, I refuse to give money to someone who talks to their employee's in such a manner.

Several times in the past year I have gone here with a friend for a catch up conversation and some good food. This last time I enjoyed Ellen's Foccacia which was very delicious and attractive to look at. The waiter was friendly although not the most experienced, but we got our food in a timely way and enjoyed our visit.... More

Looked interesting. Owner said everything was made from scratch so it sounded great. What she forgot to say was that it was made from scratch 2 days ago. I had a vegetable side that was clearly yesterday's vegetables pan 'burnt'. My husband had Pizza that required an eno chaser. Something needs to change😁

Do not be fooled by the quaint appearance of this place. You would expect a cozy looking place like this to serve you a thoughtful meal. Not so much. The "petite filet mignon" sandwich was over cooked, dry and not a filet by any means. No chips, not even a garnish. $2.00 soda was flat and warm. Waited forever for... More

We found this quaint restaurant while attending a concert at the Opera House across the street. It was decorated in an Alice in Wonderland theme. The setting was very quaint and fun. They had a cozy fire. Each table had a stack of books underneath with a box that read "eM nepO." Upon opening the box, we found a card... More

Nice fireplace to warm up with on a cold day. Good coffee and a nice meal. A really great environment and vibe to the place. Service was great. A little crowded inside.

Stopped in here for lunch. Loved the menu, would like to try breakfast and dinner options, too. Unlike other reviewers, I loved the food! The prices were good for the quantity/quality of food. Enough so, that I would return despite the faults.Service was slow, but, with a window seat, it was fun to spend time enjoying the view, and, watching... More
