Used to eat here all the time, would specifically go in for the Hawaiian pancakes. Went a few weeks ago and was pretty disappointed. They are very unorganized when busy, messing up the wait list, forgetting about tables and confused food orders. And the food just doesn't taste the same. However the prices are great, and they do try. Just... More

It's good food but nothing special. Place is rather small and parking is on the street. Prices are good. Decoration and tables are old. Decorations are very dusty.

Fay's was vintage before vintage was cool. An extensive collection of Coca-Cola memorabilia decorates the walls. The breakfast food is very good, though the tables are crowded together. The Dickinson College crowd eats here frequently, and it's a place that many Carlilians take their visitors for breakfast on Sunday morning. Tasty, typical breakfast fare.

We ate here for breakfast. The staff were welcoming, chatty and funny - especially when we asked what scrapple was - well that is something to try (or not)!! Menu was extensive, food was good and hot and the prices were just right. The surroundings lovely.

I have been here several times and it is a great little place with good, simple food and great prices. Very kid friendly and clean. The Coca-Cola décor is fun and charming. Highly recommend for a quick bite to eat or visit with friends. Be aware of their hours and I don't think they take credit cards.

Good breakfast and friendly service. Our school study session was difficult due to noise of many conversations. Go for breakfast, all enjoyed their meals.

Fay's has some of the best pancakes around. Great place to go for breakfast. It will be busy, and you may need to wait for a table, but that is because the place is so good.

I ate here on the first morning of a two week long cross country roadtrip. This wound up being one of the best meals of my trip. The pancakes were delicious (and I *love* pancakes) and the bacon was also really good, as was everything else in my sampler plate. The service was fast and friendly too. If I am... More
