Caleb’s American Kitchen(Lahaska) is a nice breakfast menu, including favorites like Eggs Benedict and French toast. One reviewer said the restaurant served him a simple breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon, all piping hot and delicious.
Cross Keys Diner (Doylestown) is one of those cute family diners where it’s easy to become a regular. Stop by for a nice cup of coffee and a reasonably priced, and tasty, breakfast. The specials are creative and wonderful.
Golden Pheasant Inn(Erwinna) is great for anniversaries and weekend getaways, but their breakfast should not be missed. Try out their prix fixe menu served on Sundays from 11 am – 3 pm. Champagne included!
Royal T’s at the Mansion Inn (New Hope) has finished its restoration and is ready for you to see what they have to offer. The brunch menu is unique, with blueberry lemon pistachio pancakes or avocado toast just some of the yummy choices available.
