We usually stop by for a lunch prior to a matinee at the Fulton. It's right across the street. My wife and I both love the smoothies. Also lots of unusual fare that is quite tasty. It gets crowded, but things move quickly.

Place to be later in the evening, but relatively expensive and typically quite crowded. Somewhat like a local Starbucks.

Prince Street Cafe was an early morning find while walking in downtown Lancaster. Their coffee is great and I topped it off with a pumpkin scone that was wonderful. Their offerings also included a breakfast menu of breakfast burritos, egg sandwiches, oatmeal as examples and a selection of wonderful baked goods. Seems to be a local favorite as well.

There is a great vibe there-- relaxed, warm and caring. The drinks --from a smoothie to a latte and a tea-- were wonderful. Four of us returned for breakfast and each of us loved the food. Good choices and the kitchen accommodated some special requests. Love this place.

Decent Coffee. Difficult to get seating and counter to table service is slow! Nice place to meet for coffee especially for outside seating!

The coffee was excellent, sandwiches were very tasty. It was a busy time for lunch on a Saturday and service was fine but nothing special.

Prince Street is a great place for a light, quick breakfast anytime you are in downtown Lancaster. The cafe is an easy walk from the market and center of downtown. Try the baked oatmeal, it's a great treat. We went two mornings in a row because it was so convenient and everything about it was to our liking.
