Had great dinner at Lisa"s! Amazing menu selections for a rather nondescript location. Interior is really neat and cozy, with friendly service. The very reasonable prices made it even better!

A family friend lives in Palmyra & frequents Lisa's cafe, so she invited us. Lisa's cafe is a typical soup/salad/sandwich establishment that has a lot of the common entrees that are popular for this area. Nothing was incredibly outstanding about our visit, but it was a good experience & the food/value were above our expectations.

This is my second visit to Lisa's Cafe. It's quaint, clean and good service. Nice menu selection and priced reasonably. I had the Rueben and my son had the Grilled Chicken Texas BBQ on pretzel bread. Mine was really good and my son ate his whole sandwich, which tells me he was pleased. Love this place!

This place is a local gem. The food is great and the prices are so reasonable. They offer a soup and sandwich is hits the spot on a cold day. Their rice pudding is so creamy, you know its homemade. It's definitely a place to go.

The food and service were A+, great atmosphere and the menu selections made my mouth water. My meal was served fast and nicely presented. Loved the cinnamon sticks. Pleasant surroundings with a feeling of being at home and not having to cook. I would highly recommend this restaurant for breakfast, however, lunch and dinner is available, too.
