“Breakfast Staple”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Lots of breakfast staples on the menu, food has flavor. Worth a visit, often crowded and you might need to wait. Service is friendly and quick, kitchen can be a little slow. Bring you appetite and your friends.

We stopped here on Friday, July 4, around 10:00 AM on our way to NJ. Parking is on-street. Fay's was busy but we got a table as soon as we entered which was great. Decor is cute - all vintage Coke-related decorations and diner tables & chairs. No one acknowledged us with a menu or said "be right with you" although several of the waitstaff made eye contact with us. After nearly 15 minutes, a woman gave us menus and brought coffee. About another 15 minutes before a different woman took our order. In that half hour, two other couples came in, got seated, placed their orders AND HAD FOOD. We just got our food when the first couple finished eating. The food was just average - I had a skillet with eggs, bacon, cheese and potatoes. It was ok. My partner had the Country Breakfast consisted of over-easy eggs, a sausage patty, 2 pancakes and toast. It was also just ok. Another woman, not our waitress, refilled coffee and dropped off the check. Cost was about $18. Overall, I would probably not go back for poor service and average food.

“Don't see the allure”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

You get an ok breakfast. Many rave about the pancakes. They are good, but why serve a great pancake but serve margarine and fake maple syrup? Substitutions are sometimes not allowed, but with more $ are allowed other times? I don't understand that. Finally, there is no way that this place is clean. Our table was sticky and I noted that none of the tables were washed after dirty plates were cleared. Add to that the dusty coke bottles and trays... Ick. Could do much better. Hope they get their act together.

Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Awesome ! The kind of place you get out in a good mood !! Very kind staff, simple dishes but excellent, the decoration is made of lots of Coca-Cola stuff from all ages...
Don't miss this spot if you get the chance to drive around Carlisle !

“Breakfast Done Right!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

This was my first visit to Fay's while visiting a friend for the weekend. I had seen the positive reviews and we decided to give it a shot. It was really good! Both the food and service were solid. Really friendly, helpful wait staff. Made us feel right at home. Get the pancakes, you won't be disappointed. Some of the best I have ever had. Can't wait to go back again! Thanks Fay's!
