We have had lunch here several times and a wonderful dinner one evening. The food is well prepared and interesting and the room with its cozy fireplace is inviting. Ed and Ellen are great hosts

Not literally, but the Dietz Refectory at Lancaster Theological Seminary, where Gypsy Kitchen is located, is in the Gothic style and a delight. Gypsy Kitchen's food is fresh, local and delicious! Sandwiches, soups, salads and desserts, and, usually, a hot entree. Never boring, always carefully prepared.
Service is cafeteria style, you order from a chalk board menu with your tray and utensils in hand, but the food is delivered to your table, fresh from the kitchen.

This new restaurant is tucked away on the grounds of the Lancaster Theological Seminary, on College Ave., near W. James St. The building is absolutely beautiful inside and out - there is a small outdoor patio - and the food is excellent. I've visited for lunch twice in the past three weeks and have sampled the vegetarian chili, a curried carrot soup, their BLT and two excellent salads. I was impressed with the menu that, while limited, is carefully chosen and changes daily (except for a few items that fans of this restaurant insist the owners keep on the menu!). Everything is homemade and the owners use fresh, local ingredients.from the surrounding area. They serve vegetarian and vegan items, as well as various meat and seafood dishes. The restaurant is open for lunch during the week and they have recently started serving dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. A word of warning....there are no carbonated beverages or alcoholic beverages served here, but it is BYOB. I will definitely be returning.
