I used to have to visit family in Carlisle Pa and I would always have to drop in to the Carlisle Diner for breakfast to get some scrapple. Their breakfast is delicious and in my opinion this establishment is underrated.

My wife and I loved this place. Near the college football field. Great parking in the rear. The menu is good. The senior specials are great. The entree includes soup/salad and dessert. We brought half of our meals home with us.
