Carlisle-Harrisburg area diners (etc.)?
Campbelltown Cafe is about 45 minutes from Carlisle, not far from Hershey. Definitely a mom and pop kind of place. They serve "classic American cuisine with a Southern influence". I had outstanding grits and vegetable omelet for breakfast. Service is friendly. Decor is kitschy.
I am currently in Carlisle (OCT 10), visiting my daughter at Dickinson College.
Here are some recommendations that fit your criteria:
