My coworkers and I were looking for a good lunch spot near the convention center and were delighted when the Dutch Eating Place experience lived up to the great online reviews. It is located within the Reading Terminal with all kinds of neat and tasty vendors and the serving style is counter height stools. We lucked out and got seats... More

The Dutch Eating Place is a fun place for a quick & tasty breakfast at a good price. It's a diner-style breakfast counter where you sit on a bar stool in the very interesting Reading Terminal Market while the Amish sling great food out of the kitchen. My breakfast was delicious, although I got the impression from looking at the... More

This place is located inside the market, you've got a big counter where the ladies will bring you your order. It's very busy but they're pretty fast. Food is good and you've got much choice. I personally tried scrambled eggs and turkey sausage, quite tasty. The only thing is that the eggs came as an omelette on the plate instead... More

This place was pretty busy, just two seats left and we grabbed them for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly. They don't rush you. The breakfast menu was extensive and it came out quickly. Great food and service!

There was a line but it went very quickly. You sit on stools at a counter. Calorie counters beware! There really isn't anything healthy here. Pancakes are very big, ham cheese omlete-the ham was excellent! The homemade strawberry jam is a must to try. Other than that nothing was super special. I felt very rushed.

Love this eatery in Reading Terminal. The blueberry pancakes and fresh squeezed orange juice are delicious. Definitely one of my go-to's for breakfast in Philly.

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.

Thank Navy49
