Drive by everyday for years. Never looks appetizing from the outside, See cars there for breakfast. Decided to try it one day and see what it was like. Walked in and all I could smell was mildew. Old and not updated. Food was adequate for eggs and hash browns. No need to ever go there again..

We have eaten at The Willows several times. The food and service has always been good. It is under new ownership and we have not been there since. I expect that it is as good as ever.

Our group of 15-18 guys eats breakfast here every two weeks. Getting all the orders done and hot can be a challenge. The Willows was taken over by new owners last spring. Two words - much improved. Decent alternative for breakfast with usually plenty of room. Very reasonably priced too. Give it a try.

I have only had breakfast here twice since ownership has changed but both times it was very good. Food arrived quickly and was hot off the grill. Coffee is also good (not weak as in some diner restaurants). The new owner is visibly active in the activity of the restaurant. I cannot comment on lunch or dinner.

All that is missing is William Shatner, a devil's head and Rod Serling... On the plus side the portions are huge, the food is tasty and the service is good. But walking in to this place is strange. You walk into a greenhouse thing that if the sun is out it is 100 degrees. For some reason one row of... More

Place under new ownership since last visit. No changes. Said they would only make minor improvements. Wife's eggs Benedict still great as always. Hard to find a place that can consistently make them perfect. My farmhouse omelette perfectly made. Great coffee. Still our Go To Place for breakfast. Next time we will try their homemade pies.

Great food, great service. Stopped in for breakfast with the wife and had a great meal. Wife had crab eggs Benedict which she said was the best she ever had. Better than the ones from Rue Principle in Emmaus at half the price and a better friendlier service. I had the Potbelly Scrambler which was Delish. We will be going... More

If you are under 60 here, you will be looked on as a kid since the average age of the clientele seems to be much older. A clean but mediocre salad bar, choice of two soups, both usually excellent and a varied menu. Closed Monday, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, but the most recommended would be the breakfast and... More

Breakfast is O.K., but skip the lunch sandwiches which for a diner are very skimpy. Decor is clean but could definitely use an update. Service is O.K., but staff is just going through the motions of having to be there.

Say now, let's get down, let's all go to...Willows! For a classic taste of Pennsylvania Dutch, ie, German, breakfast cusine, this is a winner. It's homey, campy, old school pre-diner cusine, with a wonderful array of pancakes, waffles, eggs and pastries to get any belly ready for the day ahead. It's a great spot to take the family, the staff... More
