Susquehanna Life's Fall 2020 Dining Guide

Best New Restaurants, 
as Chosen by Our Readers



Rising Sun Kitchen & Bar (2850 Horseshoe Pike, Palmyra), once a bar, has turned into “one of the best newer restaurants in Central PA.” Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and everything from sushi to tacos, standouts include Homemade Seafood Chowder and Chicken Chili, overstuffed sandwiches, Pan Seared Local Duck, Whiskey Mac and Cheese, and fantastic desserts like Banana Bourbon Toffee Cake and Peanut Butter Pie.




Sunrise Café (231 N. Hanover St., Carlisle) is a breath of New York City air, created by a former Long Island resident, and housed in the former home of John Hays, a Civil War soldier. Calling itself a “New York-inspired Breakfast and Lunch Sandwich Shop,” the café features deli-style sandwiches, baked to order NYC bagels, homemade pastries and more. Sandwich standouts include the Rockefeller Special (pastrami on rye) and Tutto Questo (roast beef and fixings). Homemade sweets include Pignoli Cookies, The Fudgiest Brownie (it is!) and Cornetti de Crema (cream horns).



Hachiko Asian Cuisine (210 William St., Williamsport) features fresh and healthy homemade Asian food made from traditional family recipes. “The Yaki Udon noodles with vegetables and Savory Chinese Crepes are especially tasty.” “Garlic Chicken and Garlic Broccoli are standouts.”
