My husband always gets a burger, and says they make the best burgers he ever had. Mom usually gets the crab .... delicious. I vary my order, depending what I'm hungry for. French onion soup is great, sandwiches are always good (I sometimes order a BLT with egg, or a grilled cheese with tomato .... they always accommodate whatever we... More

This was our 3rd visit and this time we ventured out to try something besides hamburgers. We did not care for the fish sandwiches or fish and chips. The food was average tasting. The waitress was very nice and we didn't wait long, but we will only return if we're nearby and hungry for burgers.

Wert's Cafe has a nice selection of food. I had the grilled haddock sandwich which was delicious. My favorite part of the meal was dessert - best coconut cream pie in Allentown area!

I go to Wert's Café between 2 and 4 times a month for lunch. It is a family run, long established and always friendly place to visit. In addition to a number of different soups each day they also specialize in many different variations of a hamburger sandwich. The most popular one is a very thick patty made on site... More

Excellent food and service. We were a little unsure about this place when we walked in - a lot of older folks - but everything we had was very good. The prices are very decent for the amount and quality of food you get. You need to get here by 5, they get really busy after that and there's a... More

Great sandwiches, especially the Rachel (Reuben with Cole slaw instead of sauerkraut). Very busy between 12 and 1, so plan around that. Attentive servers who are very friendly. Prices are reasonable especially considering quality and quantity.

During my visit, I was asked to join friends for lunch. I was excited to meet them at Wert's Cafe, and as soon as I looked at the menu, my choice was clear. CORN PIE! I had very high standards for this dish, as my Nanna used to make her own, often, and therefore, I learned from her. I will... More

Good place for burgers or sandwiches, good selection. One in our party got an alfredo dish and even though he is a big eater, he took some home.
