Darius took our order and had it ready when we came to pick it up. Awesome little retro diner located in the town of Emmaus. Great food, great service and great prices. Oh and their cheesecake is heavenly.

We visit the East Penn Diner frequently, usually at least once per week, for breakfast.

There are a lot of diners in the area and people have there favorites, but East Penn is a solid choice. Entrees come with salad bar and soup and there are always daily specials on the menu. If you crave breakfast you can get that 24/7 off course. Prices are in reasonable and there is usually never a big wait.

A typical diner with a big menu, the East Penn Diner provides everything that you would expect from a diner, plus a nice salad bar. A good place to get good food, it's worth the visit.

We were seated quickly and the tables/booths were not on top of each other which is a plus. The waitress was friendly as were all the other support staff. The coffee was great, and always topped off. Breakfast meals were tasty and quickly served.

As diners go this is the best in the area. Very large selection of items of which all are tasty. Home made soup and fresh salad bar are a nice touch. Lunch specials are a real bargain. Burgers are large and moderately priced. Bakery deserts are excellent. If you want a tasty hearty meal, check this place out.
