“Good Food”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Small menu but food was very good. It is located a little off the beaten path, but worth the trip. BYOB. Chef was accommodating to my gluten allergy.

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The What If Cafe is one of those places that not a lot of people know about, but when you find it and go there, you will never forget it. It's such a cozy atmosphere and the food is delicous! A little pricey, but worth it!

“A hidden jewel”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

What a delightful surprise! Hidden away, one would never guess that haute cuisine lived in that little building. We both had shrimp pesto and it was the best we ever had. The shrimp were huge! The wait staff was very informative about Harrisburg since we had never been there. We were so full we couldn't order dessert so the chef sent 8 homemade oatmeal cookies for our trip the next day. Price was reasonable and I would highly recommend it anyone.

“Always a nice experience”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

A frequent visitor and lover of the bistro "surprise" meals. Portions and price are perfect. Been a customer for years and always love to take friends and family with me to share this unique dining experience.
