Best Country Store Cafes,
as Chosen by our Readers

Springman’s Country Store Café (530 Lycoming Mall Dr., Muncy) An expansive menu is one of the hallmarks here, offering everything from Thai Chicken Specialty Pizza to Southern Style Hardwood Smoked Pit BBQ sandwiches. Don’t overlook authentic Schweinshaxe—beer braised, oven roasted pork knuckle served with homemade sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, finished with rich brown gravy.

It’s not traditional country store fare, but it’s definitely worth a try! 

Lumberville General Store (3741 River Rd., Lumberville) Always a fresh pot of coffee and a seasonal menu with locally sourced ingredients. Indoor and outdoor seating. House-made meats include ginger sage breakfast sausage and peppercorn-crusted bacon. Salmon is house-smoked! Gluten-free and healthy options, including house-blended granola topped with Greek yogurt and macerated berries with a sliced grapefruit.

Or go decadent with thick-cut French toast topped with caramelized banana and maple syrup and your favorite breakfast meat.

Cedar Run General Store (284 Beulah Land Rd., Cedar Run) Limited selections, but it’s worth a stop on your way to hike or bike the Pine Creek Rail Trail. Excellent sandwiches (allow extra time), made with specialty ingredients, not just ham and cheese. They serve Perry’s ice cream (the best!) in unique flavors like blueberry cheesecake.

The big draw is the ice-cream, but work in a lunch stop here and you won’t be sorry.

Forksville General Store (22 Bridge Street, Forksville). The main draw here is Big Mike's steaks and hoagies, Philly-style. A great place to stop on your way to World's End State Park or while taking a drive through the PA wilds. Pair your hoagie or cheese steak with Fried Pickle Chips, Zucchini Fries, Homemade Coleslaw,  or the ultimate—​Famous Dirty Jersey Fries, a huge basket of battered fries drenched in signature garlic butter sauce, topped with melted Cheez Whiz, BBQ sauce and slab bacon.

Indoor seating, and outdoor picnic seating along the Loyalsock Creek.
