Lunch in Bucks

Sandwich, Jake's Eatery

Cup of CoffeeThis post was updated 8/28/2016

I’m old-fashioned. I like to go out for lunch and get a really good chicken salad sandwich with a cup of coffee.

Do you know the kind of place I’m thinking of? Kind of like a luncheonette or diner, but it doesn’t have to be.

I want to start a list of great lunch places — nothing too fancy, nice service, menu with the basics and then some.

Here are some of my favorites. Let me know your favorite place too and I’ll add it.

Listed geographically, beginning in Lower Bucks and moving north to Upper Bucks. Wherever possible, I’ve added comments. If there are none, it means we haven’t had a chance to visit there yet but it’s been recommended by a reader.
