Prince Street Cafe was an early morning find while walking in downtown Lancaster. Their coffee is great and I topped it off with a pumpkin scone that was wonderful. Their offerings also included a breakfast menu of breakfast burritos, egg sandwiches, oatmeal as examples and a selection of wonderful baked goods. Seems to be a local favorite as well.

There is a great vibe there-- relaxed, warm and caring. The drinks --from a smoothie to a latte and a tea-- were wonderful. Four of us returned for breakfast and each of us loved the food. Good choices and the kitchen accommodated some special requests. Love this place.

Decent Coffee. Difficult to get seating and counter to table service is slow! Nice place to meet for coffee especially for outside seating!

The coffee was excellent, sandwiches were very tasty. It was a busy time for lunch on a Saturday and service was fine but nothing special.

Prince Street is a great place for a light, quick breakfast anytime you are in downtown Lancaster. The cafe is an easy walk from the market and center of downtown. Try the baked oatmeal, it's a great treat. We went two mornings in a row because it was so convenient and everything about it was to our liking.

So fun to go in after a night at the theater for coffee and dessert. It was a beautiful evening outdoors so seating outside was available. Enjoyed excellant desserts including the coconut macaroon dipped in chocolate. Very moist! We love stopping there.

Great place to sit and have a cup of coffee in Lancaster. Only a block or so from market. It is usually busy but a fun place to sit and have a quick breakfast or lunch.

After wandering around Lancaster on a Friday evening, we looked into this Cafe and stayed for food and drinks. The salads are very good, tasty and fresh, and we chose fruit smoothies after a hot day. A very friendly and relaxed ambience with mix of young and old mingling together table by table, and a friendly smiling service. A nice... More

We were @ Prince Street Grill this morning for an after-wedding brunch. Place had a great vibe. As others noted, very hip, cool crowd. Lots of young folks, but also folks of all ages. Food was good, both solid basics as well as more eclectic items. No issues at all. Coffee did the trick and the bagel sandwich ordered was... More
