This place is a cultural experience as well as a great place for breakfast or lunch. They only have 23 seats, so be prepared to wait if you get there at a busy time. The food is fresh and homemade. You can watch it being cooked before your eyes. The portions are huge and many people leave with a carry... More

Lettermans is a family favorite! The food is beyond amazing. We try and get to the diner every couple of months and more when the university is out of session. We try and mix up when we order but several menu items are always too choice: the pancakes, are extra large and extra yummy. Never have I had a pancake... More

We rerouted our trip to go through Kuntztown to come here again. Husband got sausage and bacon with BBQ sauce. It was massive with potatoes. We shared cheese curds with marinara which were on the special board. So good that I could only eat half my hamburger. Everything is fresh prepared in front of you on the grill. We sat... More

Looking for a breakfast place on the way back from Hershey and Letterman's popped up on my phone. We drove about 20 minutes out of our way because the reviews were so good. What a find. Very friendly staff and huge portions. The place itself is tiny. Counter seating and maybe 5 tables for two. Lots of specialty omelettes, the... More

The absolute largest and best breakfast you will ever have. Anything you may crave for breakfast, Doug got it. Just don't tell him you don't like the Philadelphia Eagles (HaHa).
