This restaurant was a great surprise - a gem of a find. I met my son there tonight for a sandwich. He's a student at Marywood University and one of his professors recommended this place.

My husband and I visited for a quick lunch after visiting the Coal Miner's tour. It was a chilly day so we ordered the Matza ball soup. Delicious! Perfectly seasoned and piping hot. I also enjoyed my chicken salad salad. Server was attentive even though she was incredibly busy. Check it out!

Enjoyed it so much we went twice in our 3 day stay. Once for breakfast and the next day for lunch. Gluten free bread was available. Pancakes were tasty. Tried beef bacon for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.
