Good Late Breakfast

Not sure what or where this was , but found it in the Reading Terminal. Very busy place with lots of employees in a small place. Ate breakfast as meals didn't start till 10:30. Good food!

I was in a market and decided to get a piece of the pie to go. It is a large portion and was quite good. I even ate it warmed up in a microwave later and it was still good. I would like to return one day and try a full meal.

Simple bacon and eggs were great, but the amount of plastic -- plastic bag, styroform containers, plastic cups -- makes me say, I won't be back. The Dutch and Philadelphia need to do better.

I've been wanting to brunch there for a long time because of all the good reviews, I finally got to go there on a Saturday. By the time I got there, it was already 2 and ended up getting lunch instead of brunch. I was really surprised as I didn't wait more than 5 minutes. I got the tuna sandwich... More

I was in Philadelphia for 5 days, everyone I know who has lived there recommended this restaurant. I wasn't disappointed. Breakfast was delicious. The service was fast and excellent. The only thing wrong with it is that they don't open on Sundays and Mondays

A Reading Terminal favourite serving up a variety of tasty dishes. The apple dumpling is a stand out and a great example of the baking skills of the Pennsylvania Dutch.

Cutest little building right in the middle of the Tanger shopping center. I had the seafood empanadas and my mom ordered the chicken burrito. They were quick and the food was awesome! We also ordered margaritas and they were delicious.

This is definiely the place for breakfast. Great food at a great price and huge portions. I highly recommend eating here. My only regret is that is was a very long walk from my hotel but worth it.

Sit at the counter and order up a hearty breakfast bargain. Try the Amish specialities including scrapple and fritters. It's one of those places where you will rub shoulders with guys in business suits next to city cops. An institution in the Reading Market. I've been many times and it never disappoints!
