Great place to have pub grub and a beer if your a college student or older. Pros: place to be seen Cons: stale beer smell hits you in the face, profanity can be heard everywhere, snail service

One of the best places in town for live music - if you can get in! We were here last evening during what I like to call the "off season" (Christmas break) of PSU. This keeps the crowds way down, and it is a more enjoyable experience for me. We went to see a series of bands/musicians they had playing last night, and it was very enjoyable. Decent live music venue here because the stage is elevated a bit (not true in some SC bars) and you can actually see the musicians! The acoustics are also not too bad. Also, there is more indoor seating in their "nightclub"/music venue then some places have, and a very nice outdoor seating area on College Ave. for people watching and drink specials. I have not eaten here in a long time, so I can't vouch for the food.

My daughter has severe eosinophiliac esophagitis and cannot drink liquor. She doesn't go out much because of this but was out last night for the first time in a long time with some friends, excited to have a good time, for homecoming.
Cafe 210 ruined her evening.
She was standing up at the bar drinking water, waiting for fries to come out and a bouncer went up to her, throwing his weight against her, making her feel very uncomfortable. She told him he was making her feel uncomfortable and he didn't care. He told her to get out because she was intoxicated. When tried to defend herself and tell him she was only drinking water and had an illness. But he only became more insistent and threw her out. Of all people to pick on, this bouncer picks on a small, defenseless, sickly young woman drinking water. This type of action not only is unjust but borders on harassment. I cannot believe these places get away with this kind of maltreatment. Needless to say, none of my friends or family will be going to Cafe 210 again and I will never have anything good to say about this place again.

Love sitting out on the patio on a nice sunny afternoon. They are known for their many types of adult teas. I was disapponted this trip because they usually serve them in pitchers, but since it was a game weekend they only serve by the glass. It's right across the street from campus so the people watching is great. Foods good also.

Great bar/restaurant. It isn't a 5 star sort of place, but the food is always good and the atmosphere is very bar/party oriented. This was my favorite bar as a student at Penn State and it is nice to see things haven't changed much at 210 in 25 years.
