John’s Hideaway Restaurant – Carlisle

On Tuesday June 22, 2010 we visited John’s Hideaway Restaurant at 302 North College Street in Carlisle. Bill had no idea this place even existed, but Craig had eaten here many times as a Carlisle resident back in the day.  There were quite a few customers that morning, and the waitress remembered Craig after all this time. We ordered our usual breakfast of eggs, home-fries, toast and a side (I had bacon, Craig had sausage). Our food came out in about 7 minutes and it was a pretty full plate. Everything had a very home cooked look and was very tasty. Four big strips of bacon, Craig said the sausage was really good. The restaurant itself was pretty standard inside, lots of booths, some tables in the back and a lunch counter with stools. The place hadn’t been remodeled in quite a while, but it was ok, the seats were comfy and the people were nice. Several customers said hello and talked with us, so I would say it is a friendly, home town kind of place. Overall, a good breakfast!
