A friendly diner with a nice selection of diner food. I was here for breakfast and the eggs,sausage and pancakes were great. Service was extremely fast and they kept the coffee coming. Considering it's hidden away at Chester County Airport I was surprised how busy it was.

The meatloaf was good, the gravy was not as good. Portions are large and the prices are relatively cheap. I won't go out of my way to return.

Went once again with another large group for Breakfast today at the Flying Machine Cafe. The server was a bit flustered but she did a great job getting us all of our orders in a timely and correct manner. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. I had scrambled eggs with cheese, home fries, scrapple and an english... More

WE took our grandchildren there for dinner. The food was average and the service was good. My wife got a salad that was almost all lettuce and not very interesting or tasting. The children thought the food was OK. But the airport lights at night were cool and the restaurant has a nice aviation theme with many models hanging from... More

Comfortable little restaurant/bar. The burgers are good and salads are worth the value. There is a view of the runway at Chester County airport. The restaurant is located in the tiny airport.

Standard fare, burgers, sandwiches, wings. We hoped for breakfast but sadly got there a little too late. If you're into airplanes this is a good place to stop. Service was adequate, order was correct, food arrived hot, portions were good. At the end of the day you could probably find better food but you can't beat the convenience. The four... More

This is a nice place to have a quiet meal, decent food and drink, with a view of the airport runway with airplanes taking off and landing. Especially fun for kids.

One of the best airport restaurants I've visited. On the always quaint and relaxed Coatesville Airport you can enjoy a wide variety of menu selections and the coffee and tea are great. Some of the best Clam Chowder and Onion Soup along with a wide selection of burgers and steaks along with their lunch specials makes this little restaurant a... More
