“Great diner food”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Great diner food at a fair price. Breakfast is available all day and is tasty. Negatives include it's usually noisy inside and the coffee is only just okay.

“Oh My Goodness - So much to choose from”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

First the waitresses are REALLY nice & helpful. The Pancakes are the best. I tried the sourdough bread pancakes .. they were fabulous. This is a busy place so make sure you arrive before you are starving, you may have to wait.

“The best restaurant ever!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This place is amazing. The service is friendly and quick. The bathrooms are clean as is the restaurant. The food is spectacular. Had the best creamed chipped beef (aside from my brother's of course) there yesterday. I usually don't eat home fries, but I am so glad I ate theirs because they were outstanding. My son's waffle was gone in no time! Oh, and their shoo-fly pie is worth stopping for! I will be stopping here as much as possible on my trips from Virginia to Reading. It is small and only takes cash or checks so be prepared!

“Best breakfast around!”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

You can't go wrong at the Pancake Farm! Our family has been eating here for at least 10 years. It is a small, friendly place with excellent food and great prices. You can get your eggs exactly the way you want them. The pancakes, of course, are excellent. Everything is made from scratch. Best homefries in the county!
They hold events for a local dog rescue and charities dear to the employees' hearts. Saturday mornings may require some waiting, but it is always worth it. We have never had a bad meal here!
Try the homemade chocolate chip cookies at the checkout!

“A Local Treat”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Home cooked, delicious food representative of your grandmother's cooking doesn't even cover the friendly, yummy gathering spot for many locals. It's not fancy, but neither are the prices, and the service is just plain great! It's worth a little wait if there's line; and there often is. The only complaint I have is that they have the most independant hours that you just can't get their often enough...I so wish they'd be open on Sundays!
