We had lunch here and both liked our salads. Very fresh and tasty. Salad was huge. I like the containers so that you can take with you if you don't finish. I did not eat dinner the night I had this salad for lunch! Only...More

Excellent salads, by far the best in the area. Think of Chipotle, but for salads. Lots of fresh ingredients, meats, and dressings to choose from. I've enjoyed my meal here each time and I've also been extremely full each time. Rare to find such a...More

I have lunched here numerous times and have always been fully satisfied with the Austrian fare offered. The plates are quite ample. Interestingly, Berndt, a co-owner, is a character and gives people a bit of a hard time. I have always enjoyed his schtick and...More

The salads here are unbelievable! When we tell friends about it, we explain it as Saladworks with flavor! Each salad is big enough to stand on its own for 2-3 meals. Already looking forward to our next trip to State College and Fiddleheads!

The place is small but the service was great. The line moved quickly. I stopped in for some soup and fiddlesticks. They were out of fiddlesticks (disappointing) but the soup (tomato) was delicious. Recommended place for a quick and light meal.

I love Fiddleheads! They have so many choices to add to your salad and the salads are so delicious! I haven't tried the soups but they sound good.

One of the employees of Kitchen Kaboodle recommended this for lunch on a mid-October day that we were in town. She was spot on saying that one salad is too much for one person (why oh why didn't I heed her advice?). We had an...More

Stopped for a quick lunch while passing through State College. The staff members behind the counter were friendly and efficient, and happy to answer questions and make recommendations. Food ready almost immediately, and it was great. Generous portions. We both loved the salads we picked...More
