Good food...........not exceptional. Small restaurant just off of hwy. 10 that has been around for years. They do a good job but it's just not anything that you would drive any distance for. It would be nice if some of their breakfast options might include a muffin or something just a little extra.

I write a lot of reviews on trip advisor and I look for the best when writing a review. When traveling I look to support the local, non-national chain restaurants so I selected Copper Lantern. Most of the food on the menu was going to contain gluten or dairy so I explained my food intolerance and asked the waitress if... More

This special little spot just off Hwy 10 across from Mc Donalds and Wendy's has been a family favorite for many years. They are polite and insanely quick. The atmosphere is quite and the coffee not too bold. They are a bit pricey but much better than anything you can get in a bag to go. Worth the stop if... More

It felt like stepping back into the 1960's having dinner at the Copper Lantern which is located close to the hotel where we were staying. Our meals were reasinably tasty but the food lacked character and seasoning. No one could ever complain about the prices. What was lacking was general cleanliness and a professional wait service. There was lots of... More

The Copper Lantern is a place that I go for the morning meal. Food is plentiful, service is great. Cost is the best in the area.

If you want good hot food w/excellent service without waiting very long after ordering, this restaurant is for YOU! From regulars at the coffee bar, couples dining, to families heading up North, this is a great place to take a break and EAT UP!

Have only been here a few times, but will go back. The service has always been great, food is like home cooking and plenty of it. I'm sure their desserts are excellent, but have never had room after a meal to have one. Next time, I'll order one to go and have it later. Clean and comfortable atmosphere as well.... More
