I was quite surprised about the great food from this corner tavern. All the Pizza I have had has been excellent. Their crust hardens to a "cracker like" crispness. Also love their meatball sub. Fair prices too.

The pizza is amazing, thin and crispy with the sauce on top of the cheese. They are sized as personal pizzas and we recommend one per person. Also cheese sticks and fish bowls of beer are great choices!

Ate lunch here with a coworker. We both got the pizzas and enjoyed. It's a bit of an "upside down" pizza in that the cheese is on the crust, sauce, then the toppings. Everything was fresh (no canned mushrooms here!). The waitress was friendly and service was quick for a Friday at lunch. The outside is nothing special and even... More

Been going here for years. The pizza is just amazing, can't be beat. The lasagna is also very good....I think it sells out. It's nothing fancy inside, but the service is good. Definitely charming in its own way.

This restaurant doesn't do any advertising, is word of mouth, and was busy when we were there on a Monday night. The restaurant doesn't offer items for people with restricted diets and the only reason they did not get 5 stars. We do not have any issues, but out daughter does and that would eliminate Subway Cafe from our rotation... More

Crappy beer, dank (in a bad way) atmosphere and over priced (but tasty) pizza. You can do better. Both, "you", as in "you the reader" and "you, Subway Cafe" could do better. Is it is currently you, the ready, could pick a better option. And you, Subway Cafe, the once cult-like dear of Harrisburg, you could up your game. Spruce... More
