We ate here over the extended 4th of July weekend as an alternative to Presque Isle concessions. We were visiting the park, did not bring food and heard the concessions were pricey (which they were) and not very good. This place had descent lunch food...More

Don't miss Avanti's! If you enjoy a good splurge for breakfast you'll love Avanti's. I had the eggs benedict and consider it a major treat. My husband had the spinach eggs, which is just like the eggs benedict but substitutes a good sized serving of...More

Ordered the Blueberry waffles on special board...Out. Tried to order fresh fruit on waffles, no fresh fruit! Was told waffles were frozen..Toasted to order. Yuck. Meatballs omelet..Meatballs were microwaved...With warm sauce dropped on top. Serve friendly, but menu items..Less than average

Been awhile and better than ever. Maybe to coincide with the Polish festival, they featured a Polish breakfast. Eggs, kielbasa, potato-filled pierogies, and toast. Delicious. Throw in a complimentary sampling of corned beef hash and we waddled out. Nice folks, great food, local ambiance. Don't...More

Passing through, we decided to stop in Erie to look at the lake and get breakfast. Avanti's was just around the corner and had good reviews, so we stopped in. This is clearly a place where locals go and are known by the staff --...More
