“Great food”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

We ate here on our vacation to Lancaster and it was such a great experience. First of all it's pretty cool to tell people back home that you had lunch at a pharmacy. I felt like I was back in time eating at a small town diner. Then the food came and my husbands eyes widened when he took a bite of his salad. We will definitely eat here again.

“SO friendly AND great food”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

My granddaughter and I had brunch here the first Sunday in May. We got there at the right time as it was 11:10 am and the church crowd came not long after. We are counter girls so we got a seat right away. Very friendly waitress, two old gents at the counter and the cashier. Plus, a few other people said hello to us as they entered. My GD is a little charmer so they can't help it. She had French toast and sausage which she finished and I had "it will make you feel like a kid again" chicken corn soup and a special club sandwich. The soup was delicious just like Mom's. My sw was made with sliced chicken (not deli) and fresh lettuce toms, and bacon. Very good. After lunch, we strolled around the lovely gift shop which seems to have almost anything - jewelry, books, toys, shoes!, hats, home décor and it's all very clean and well merchandised. Just a darling place to visit. We will return.

“A Fun Place To Eat”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

When we visit this part of PA, we always try to get to Hinkle's for breakfast. They have daily specials and a pretty extensive menu when you remember that it is actually a pharmacy. Prices take you back in time as well since they are extremely reasonable. Try the potato cakes! Love those! Service is very friendly, a little slow with the bill this visit, but we will for sure be back.

“"Cheers" without the alcohol”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Seems to be the meeting place for locals and everyone knows your name or face. Great breakfasts and very reasonably priced. Stand in line to get a booth or take a seat at the counter and you won't be sorry. Sandwiches, soups and meals are all served with good service. Try a grilled Shifter sandwich and you won't be sorry. Specials on the menu every day.

The gift shop at Hinkle's is wonderful. Unique and reasonably priced items. And there is an annual sidewalk sale in July that's a great time to pickup bargains from the gift shop. Pharmacy is always busy and all employees in the store are very helpful and pleasant.

My husband and I eat at Hinkle's at least weekly and sometimes more often.
