Their Breakfast Quesadilla is very tasty and a twice as large as I expected for the price! Two people of average appetite could split an order of this.

Walking the Main Street at night and enjoying how quaint the town is, but needing a coffee to warm up. We ordered from Starbucks and it was delicious and just right!

So this cafe is located right in the middle of the local "department store," which has stayed frozen in time in many respects. You will be eating beside the menswear and shoe departments. The food was really yummy though! The lettuce on the salads was clearly fresh and local-not from a bag that came in on a truck from lord... More

Part of Dunham's store, the Café 1905 offers an opportunity for a light lunch. They feature a national brand coffee and specialty non-alcoholic beverages and a range of sandwiches, snacks and soup. Not as good as it used to be, but a decent place for a quick lunch if you don't mind not having wait staff.

I was here with my daughter a couple of years ago, and the lady behind the counter had a bug up her butt about her job to the point where she deliberately ignored us. She walked to the back room and deliberately kept us waiting. In the back room, she was complaining about us being "pushy". I don't know if... More

My husband and I enjoyed the soup and sandwiches we ordered from the Cafe. I loved the Starbucks coffee that they serve! It is such a nice place to have a cup of coffee with friends or just watch the world go by.

Do not try to find this place by looking for a Cafe. It is basically in the front store window of the locally owned Department Store on Main Street. You remember, the kind every town had when Jimmy Stewart starred in "It's a Wonderful Life". And yes, it was. So, it has Starbucks coffee and a series of decent sandwiches.... More

We had coffee and a pastry here in the morning after walking around Wellsboro. Now, in this time of chain stores and merger after merger, it's so nice to find a locally owned department store. And doubly nice to find a coffee shop in the store! Our lattes were delicious and the treat we got was good too. A man... More

Portions of ice cream were a great value. Only two flavors but good quality. Friendly service. We enjoyed our stop as a late afternoon treat as they close early so not available after dinner.
