Went in for breakfast in a bit of a rush to make my train. No concerns here - the waitress came right away, put in my order quickly and I was on my way with lots of time to spare. The breakfast came out exactly as I had ordered it, scrambled eggs were perfectly done, bacon was crisp, toast was... More

Eat at the counter type of diner in Reading Terminal Market. People line up for seats and with good reason. Great food! Blueberry pancakes unbelieveable! S.O.S. (creamed chipped beef on toast) fantastic! I know, it's an aquired taste which I developed in the Navy. Not many places serve it. This is where you go for breakfast.

We were only able to come at lunch time because they are closed on Mondays when we tried to go back for breakfast, but the Ruben was delicious. There is not much seating within the restaurant, but they are close to a general seating area in the terminal. Their combos are a good deal and they were very accommodating with... More

I had the Reuben platter and my friend had the open faced turkey. Both were excellent! Great service! The waitress even went to another vendor to get my friend a Pepsi since she doesn't like Coke.

This was a great escape from conference and hotel food. The atmosphere at Reading Market is vibrant and fun. Exploring to find the Dutch Eating Place was a mouthwatering adventure in itself. Breakfast at the counter has many options with a Pennsylvania Dutch flair. I had scrapple, home fries and eggs. My friend had cinnamon raisin French toast. Both meals... More

I have ate here in the Redding Terminal area a couple of times. The staff is super friendly and the food is always great and plentiful. Cant leave without the apple pie dessert which is huge. Covered in whip cream. Highly recommended for any time of day when they are open. Breakfast\Lunch\early dinner. Think they close around 4:00pm?

I've never had such attentive service! The food was great too! If there are two of you, get one order of pancakes to share. One short stack is too much for one person! I will definitely return next time I'm in Philly.

Arrived as Reading Market opened. The counter at the Dutch Eating place was full by 8:03. It's all counter space. We ordered a variety of omelets, pancakes, french toast. Service was speedy...hot food in front of us by 8:10. So fast. Fresh, tasty, even my teenaged son was filled. Don't worry if it looks full, turnover seemed to be as... More

In the Reading Terminal and this restaurant is always packed. This morning we decided to wait to be seated. The service was fast, menu normal for breakfast, all employees were very nice. Our breakfast was perfect! Loved it!

Situated in the reading terminal market, it was right by our hotel. We had the pancakes and it was very good, its not fancy or anything but its good. Coffee is not very strong though...
