I will soon be headed to Pennsylvania Dutch country and would like to take in two breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners that will provide the best possible "taste" of the region. I don't care if they're high-end or low-end, touristy or not--I just want them to be full of good, local flavor and tradition. Suggestions please!!

      One of the best PA Dutch restaurants I've been to is the Country Table in Mt. Joy. Wonderful pancakes, waffles, baked oatmeal. Good country cooking for lunch and dinner, good baked stuff for dessert. Simmons bakery in Lampeter is good for lunch and baked stuff.

        Consider the Shady Maple if you think you'd like to try a smorgasbord restaurant. Yes it is touristy and definitely not haute cuisine, but it's always been fun and fairly authentic for what it is.
