We picked up sandwiches at Wendle's both days we were in the area. They are delicious and can be purchased first thing in the morning so if you plan to hike and picnic, you are ready to go. Great atmosphere! Harks back to the 60's and 70's!

Most amazing mocha lattes and homemade muffins. We sat outside and had a great view of life in Franconia

Wendle's is a small but friendly cafe and served great coffee , homemade muffins and pumpkin bread as well as pancakes, eggs and build your own sandwiches. Definitely stop in when in Franconia

The food was not as good as the last time we were here a few years ago. We tried the split pea soup which tasted like a can of peas mashed up and warmed. Our ham sandwich was mediocre, balloon bread, tasteless tomato and wilted sprouts. Won't be back.

Had breakfast there. Real food at great price. We loved the informal friendly setting. Breakfast in the porch was a treat. Great coffee too.

We didn't wait to be seated. It really is a make shift set up and not very service minded. I thought the list of prices to be excessive for the ambiance. It doesn't even have a view.

Fresh, delicious, generous servings, and a staff that is super nice and friendly makes Wendle's a great place to go have a leisurely lunch. Inside and outside dining in a casual cute atmosphere and the locals eat here, too.

Stopped in for a quick bite while visiting the area for the first time. Wendle's offers a large menu and I chose the breakfast sandwich: egg, bacon and cheese on a Portuguese roll. Delicious! Sat outside on the porch to enjoy the breeze. Will definitely stop again when we are in the area.

Ordered scrambled eggs. I got a fried egg, simply cut up to look scrambled. Gross- no flavor whatsoever, asked for cheese- got none, filthy salt/pepper shakers. Lazy meal and a very low maintained restaurant environment.
