My family and I walked around Lancaster town last Sunday morning looking for this restaurant. We finally located it and were quickly seated. The staff was very friendly and provided great service. I had a three egg omelet with toast and potato(half serving) with roasted tomatoes (half serving). There is nothing better than to start your weekend morning off with... More

Had breakfast here one recent Saturday morning. There was a bit of a wait. Unfortunately, there's not much of a waiting area and even once you're seated, it felt a little claustrophobic to me. This restaurant could easily expand. No wonder it's so popular, the food was delicious (I had the eggs with bacon, toast, and roasted tomatoes) and the... More

I'm a self-proclaimed pancake snob. You know...the dude who brings his own REAL maple syrup to restaurants. So needless to say, it takes a lot to get me excited when it comes to other people's flapjacks, but these were super tasty...they're prepared with an oatsy batter and served with a small cup of spiced apples and pure maple syrup as...

Okay, Here is why it did not get five circles. After we were seated outside, it took the waitress about 5 plus minutes to get to us. Having worked in the food service industry for over seven year previously, I know this is unacceptable. Eventually we were greeted by what turned out to be a great waitress, she never failed... More

If you are from out of town or simply have never been to On Orange, do yourself a favor and have breakfast at hands-down the best breakfast downtown. I head to On Orange most weekends and the food and service, combined with the cozy eclectic atmosphere, makes this place outstanding. The entire staff is fun and friendly although Joan is... More

Any one who has spent time in Lancaster City knows about On Orange. This location has a long reputation for being the best place in town for breakfast, well maybe lunch too. The names on the front of the restaurant have changed and even owners too but, this little kitchen puts out consistently delicious food. The Swedish Oatmeal pancakes have... More

This tiny storefront, eclectic bistro has a great healthy/whole food menu - try the oatmeal pancakes with whipped cream or the great variety of freshly made (unusual) omelets or a hearty muffin. Enjoy the newspaper and great coffee, then take a stroll through downtown Lancaster to see our great Central Farmers Market and the many boutique shoppes around Penn Square.

My husband and I recently had breakfast here on a Saturday morning after an over night stay in Lancaster. We arrived around 9:30am and were seated immediately downstairs. The restaurant is small and quaint. Both of our meals were delicious and they have really good coffee. When we were finished they provide your bill with chocolate chip cookies which were... More

Met two friends for brunch here, first time customer. The service was decent and the food was fine. One companion got a disappointing breakfast sandwich that came lonely on a plate (without fruit, hash browns, or even a garnish); poor presentation. The other friend got a tasty speciality omelette that she enjoyed very much. My pick was a chorizo corn... More
