Unremarkable but satisfying diner I heart of Carlisle. Popular place for students and visitors to the college. Huge menu typical of American diners. Good coffee, and ok omelettes.

Breakfast at the Carlisle Diner is a treat. No matter if you are going in after a night out, or are just up early enjoying a nice morning. The food and service are always good and the price is cheap.

Recently under new ownership, however not much has changed here. Breakfast and late night bar closing is probably best suited for visiting. What you would expect in a lower-cost diner. Exterior weeds and cigarette butts are detracting and the worn, dingy interior and greasy atmosphere...More
