“The "Real" Subway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Who says there are no culinary delights in Pennsylvania's capital? The Subway Cafe isn't a fast food joint, doesn't resemble a subway car, and probably will never serve up a latte. But if you want good slow food that is consistently high quality at the most affordable price points, this is a must see, stop, and taste. Pizza and pasta are stapes of the Subway and draft beer that provides the perfect pairing. The ideal place to visit solo or with a party of10+. You'll find the service quality matches the food. All good.

“good place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

hoestly speaking, we've ever been there twice. the first time with my family for a birthday party. they served a good atmosphere for us, spending two hours there. the second time was dinner with friends. we ordered pizza and coffee. i think the pizza is better than coffee there, you may have a try.

“Best Pizza Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

If you have never gone to the Subway Cafe, you must order the pizza. It's very different from the average pizza shop pizza. Be sure to say HI to Scotty, the bartender. They also have a great salad, and be sure to order their homemade dressing!

Time stood still in this neighborhood bar and restaurant. It felt like I had never left! The food and pizza are just as I had remembered 40 years ago! Friendliest place in town!
