This wee gem of a restaurant is about as unimpressive looking as they get. It’s a small coffee shop-type place with a few worn booths and tables in the middle of a bustling indoor farmer’s market. But the food is fresh and homemade like grandma used to make (if your grandma, like mine, was Pennsylvania Dutch). The cooks and servers are Amish, and the service is fast and friendly even when all the seats are full.

Portions are generous. Sandwiches are made on thick slices of the market’s delicious homemade white bread, usually butter-toasted on the grill. Bacon, which comes on many of them, is thick, chewy, and flavorful. Soups, including the PA Dutch specialty chicken corn (with thick homemade noodles), vegetable beef, ham and bean, and other daily specials are packed with chunks of tender meat and vegetables and rich broth. My lunch today was a bowl of the chicken corn followed by a warm apple dumpling (a whole apple encased in pastry and baked in a cinnamon syrup) sided by a small pitcher of milk to pour over it. It filled me up and more!

On other visits I’ve eaten a terrific chicken salad melt with Swiss cheese and thick bacon on that wonderful bread. My companion raves about their omelets, and enjoyed her grilled cheese and ham. The pancakes look great, but I haven’t gotten around to them yet, what with all the other good things to try. But the homefries are the best I’ve ever had: a mixture of crusty-brown and creamy.

The fresh-cut french fries, which we had today for the first time, are almost as good (they have been nowhere NEAR a freezer, nor has anything else in this place as far as I can see). To top it all off, on each table is a cruet of sweet, almost runny strawberry jam that tastes like the essence of summer. I could eat it by the spoonful.

There is nothing trendy or the least bit fancy here. It’s just simple, unvarnished, REAL food like it used to be. The market is only open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, but it’s definitely worth a trip.
