The friendly family diner isn't dead...it's in Manheim Pa, alive and well. My FAVE place to eat in central PA...and there are a lot of good diners there!
I love breakfast here! Everything is fresh and yummy, the serving sizes would make Weight Watchers cringe, and the waitstaff is super friendly! If you go in, say hi to owner Ehab, and chef extraordinare, Khaled.
Going on Sat or Sun a.m., be prepared to wait a bit, and parking can be crowded. But there are more spaces out back, so that's where I usually go.
Pros: Big portions, friendly staff
Cons: Parking can get crowded
