On several business trips to the Wilkes Barre area, I have had the pleasure of dining at The Cafe. While unassuming, it has provided on several occasions a delightful evening of quiet and restful celebration of life and achievement...which cannot be had without a delicious...More

I had a Caesar salad and a crab cake sandwich. Salad was very ordinary. Croutons were store bought not homemade as indicated on the menu. Crab sandwich was good served with ruffles potato chips. I would rather if had fruit or a healthy alternative.

Excellent dinner and service. We had plans for a movie and were a little rushed. Staff made sure we got out in a reasonable time. The only reason I gave 4 stars was the crab claw appetizer. Ordered a 1/2 pound of stone crab claws...More
