Best Places for Brunch,
As Chosen by our Readers
Eggs benedict from Tomato Pie Cafe

At the Tomato Pie Café (23 N. Broad St., Lititz, and 3950 TecPort Dr., Harrisburg) breakfast—punctuated with creative coffee concoctions as well as smoothies and milkshakes, is served until 2 p.m. Traditional breakfast items have a unique twist: Maple & Spice French Toast, their signature Tomato Pie, Housemade Quiche and Quinoa Pancakes! And don’t forget classic egg sandwiches turned upside down—Fried Eggs & Brie, Black Bean Flipper and Sausage and Squash Hash all delight.  Lunch and dinner also served.


Amami Kitchen & Espresso Bar (512 Market St., Lewisburg) has perhaps the best coffee outside a major metropolitan area. Espresso is flavorful and dark, Café Americano is full of body. Breakfast, ranging from a simple Croissant to Croissant/Beggel Sammy (with fried egg, provolone and mayo) and the healthy leaning Breakfast Salad, outfitted with spring mix, roasted tomatoes, crumbled  bacon, over-easy egg and house balsamic. The Breakfast Wrap, with eggs, provolone, roasted potatoes and sriracha mayo, is legendary. Specials surprise and delight. Baked goods simmer with flavor. Sister restaurant, The Kind Café, in Selinsgrove, is equally good.    


Country Cupboard (101 Hafer Road, Lewisburg) was the vision of entrepreneur Dan Baylor, who created a multi-dimensional shopping and dining experience. Order off the menu or choose the breakfast buffet, served until 10:30 a.m. Monday-Saturday, and 11 a.m. on Sunday. The buffet offers a cornucopia of options: ham, bacon and sausage; scrambled eggs, French toast, fried potatoes and cold cereals. Top it off with homemade sticky buns, fruit crisp, Danish, biscuits, bagels with cream cheese and chilled fruit cup. And don’t forget to visit the bakery!
