“Excellent breakfast- skip the fast food chain options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

I was visiting family in Chambersburg and decided to have Sunday breakfast here. This downtown restaurant has been around forever, and it hasn't lost it's touch, even though it has probably changed hands a few times when I first visited it in the early '60's. Service was fast and I couldn't believe how fast my order arrived, piping hot. I ordered the basic scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries and toast and everything, especially the home fries were just what I was expecting. For $6.95 you get the above, which includes 4 slices of bacon. The home fries deserve special mention. They are red skin potatoes, chopped on site, not the shredded variety you get in most other restaurants. They were perfectly prepared with the right about of crusting, and hot----not warm. I saw others in the restaurant have omelets and their signature "Scrambler" which looked wonderful. Give Molly's a try. It's a small local business not a national chain. You won't be disappointed.

“Chambersburg's Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

If you are looking for a local restaurant that represents the friendliness and hospitality of Chambersburg, than this is it. Molly's Restaurant is a great place to get a good meal for a great price. Rarely will you find a place you can eat lunch for $5 and actually leave the restaurant full. Here is my summary:

• The atmosphere seems a little "Tacky", but the food and hospitality makes up for it.

• There is a good variety of choices for food, and something for everyone on the menu. They will take requests as well!

• The restaurant is never packed, and there is always room.

• Parking is slim – best to find a lot and walk from there.

• Service is quick and easy – waiting time for food is minimal.

• Daily specials and soup always change – good to know something is different every day.

Overall the experience is unique, fresh, and fun for everyone. If you are in the Chambersburg area, downtown specifically, then check out Molly's Restaurant. A great place!

“Best breakfast in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Have been to Molly's a few times for breakfast; delicious each time! I love the veggie baked omelet, muffins, and Bananas Foster waffle! Coffee is good, very clean, never crowded, relaxing, street parking is OK, but I prefer to use the public lot across the st. Their lunch menu is unimpressive, especially if you don't eat meat. I'll continue to go for breakfast; have been with friends, family, and by myself. There's a bar with a TV and newspaper, so it's fine to go alone.

“Great any day of the week!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Anna and the ladies take great care to serve piping hot, fresh, tasty food quickly and made to order. There are some great choices on the menu you won't find elsewhere and even those you will have been stepped up a notch for a real eating experience. The gyros are one of my favorites and frankly, much better than we ate anywhere in Greece! But always save room for one of Anna's unusual creme brulee's or bread puddings. She comes up with some awesome flavor surprises. The place is small and only open for breakfast and lunch but bring your appetite and enjoy.
