With hours from early morning until late evening, the Big Oak Cafe is a good choice for a light meal (soup & sandwich), or just a coffee break. Place your order at the counter and then bring your food and drinks to one of the tables.

We've been going to Big Oak ever since we moved to the Chambersburg area 7 years ago. Their Ham salad spread is to die for. Literally! It's so good that I go into the Grocery store and get some more everything. Don't get me started on their Potato or Macaroni salads. Can you say? Yummy good... The Serendipity is fabulous... More

I come here every week with my bestie and we love it. I love the salads, the baked potato soup and I almost always get "the spread" the coffee or hot tea is a must.

The Cafe is great as a stand alone for lunch or a mid morning or mid day snack time. Fresh home-made soups and sandwiches are always on the Fare along with other specials of the day. BUT, the cool thing about this Cafe is that it is located inside THE BUTCHER SHOP, which is the best place to buy your... More

I get the Eclectic every time! They let you sub in any bread you want and have great sides. This is a MUST eat spot!! They perfected sandwiches for sure.

We were on our way to a high school soccer playoff game in Chambersburg and needed a place t grab a quick meal. We accidentally came upon the Big Oak Cafe and gave it a try. We were in a hurry to eat and run and the Big Oak met the challenge with perfection. We had our sandwiches served promptly... More

This is in same building as Butcher Shoppe on Stouffer ave Chambersburg. Easy access off of route 30 exit of interstate 81. The interior is cozy with 2 separate sections, one near the counter, the other section has some soft chairs and a TV. Various coffee and smoothie drinks plus sandwiches, soups, salads, expresso, breakfast items and little desserts.

I love this place and the entire atmosphere! The coffee is average but tasty. The food is always fresh and they offer daily specials. Friendly service! Local art on walls. Attached to an updated food market with exceptional meat department. At times it can be very busy but that's a good sign right?! I would definitely recommend stopping at this... More

The atmosphere here is very very good however the food isn't always the best. Well I should say the food's okay it's just a style of food doesn't impress me that much. However when the weather is nice in the spring and fall it is a nice place to have a lunch with my lovely wife
