post-wedding brunch in Central PA

carnicero Jul 7, 2013 11:59 AM

Getting married on a Friday in September in York County. We're looking for a place to have a post-wedding brunch Saturday morning for family and close friends in lieu of a rehearsal dinner Thursday night. Harrisburg-Mechanicsburg-York areas are preferred, but any recommendations between HBG, York and Lancaster would be appreciated.

We don't know how many people we'll have yet, but I'm ballpark-guessing 20-30.

    We are doing brunch at Mangia Qui. The upstairs holds 40 people. Ours is for post wedding on a Sunday in October.

      Thanks, I've been to Mangia Qui for brunch before and didn't even think of upstairs- downstairs is pretty tiny if memory serves. We also got a suggestion from elsewhere for the Yorktowne Hotel.

        Downstairs holds 42. They basically do two seatings 10 and 12.

      We were just going over the list and it looks more like 50-55 people, so it looks like Mangia Qui is out. Tough having big families, I guess. Hard to say for sure how many will show at this point. Is there anything else worth looking into?

        Home 231 in Harrisburg has a really good brunch.

          Not sure they can accommodate 50-55. Check ASAP.

          I don't like it as much as Mangia Qui and Home 231, but Sturges Speakeasy has a brunch and anupstairs where they have events- not sure how many they hold.
