Ephrata (late lunch or early dinner?)
Looking for a good hearty meal after a day of shopping with a friend---PA Dutch a plus! (I know about Green Dragon, but they are only open on Fridays). Thanks...and happy holidays!
Actually, the Silk City Diner (on RT272, slightly North of Ephrata) is pretty decent. It has PA "Dutch" Deutsch, and other stuff. (I think that some of the buffets that are in the area aren't all that great.)
Have you thought about the Inn at Donneckers?
Former Le Bec Fin chef makes similar crabcakes and other fine dining choices for lunch and dinner, plus "ladies who lunch" items too.
