While there are some healthy options, The Dream is best for plates crowded with meats, gravy, stuffing, waffles, etc. or for a large breakfast platter. Friendly, competent service. Great Prices. Don't miss the mutant cream puffs (although I prefer the apple dumpling). Enjoy!

You can sample Central Pennsylvania cuisine here. Try the turkey and waffels, stuffed pepper soup or a home made dessert. Friendly staff and great meals are served at a reasonable price. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner specials daily. It's easy to see why it's a hometown favorite.

I had not visited in a few years, but the Dream is always a good stop off for a quick lunch while travelling between Pittsburgh and central PA. Service is prompt, friendly, and there is a take out bakery. Servings are generous, in home-cooking style and the menu has been updated since our last visit. We started going over 40 years ago, when it was Dave's Dream. I miss the sock monkeys!

We had a large group but had excellant service. Everyone in the group liked their food especially those that ordered the turkey dinner. The only negatives came from the clam dinner, it had the smallest portion of clams ever. (all the other meals had generous portions) The other negative came from the group member that ordered fish and it wasn't hot. (nothing on the plate was hot). Have also used the Party Room for special occassions and would highly recommend it.

Eat here often, the service is top notch and you can not beat the portion sizes. Food and bakery items are homemade! Only complaint is from time to time constancy can be lacking from vist to vist (the food) depending on who is in the kitchen. But the few times I had issues they were resolved quickly and in a friendly manner. All in all soild good home cooking.
