Village Square Diner – Shermans Dale

On Tuesday August 10, 2010 we decided to travel to Shermans Dale and visit the Village Square Diner at 5201 Spring Road. Craig said he had been there before, although it had been quite a while. I had never eaten there before. The parking lot was fairly busy with customers and there were quite a few inside. It seemed like a fairly nice hometown diner type of arrangement, with several waitresses working and several tables and booths filled with customers. Our waitress was friendly and with little more than a glance at the menu we were ordering our usual, 2 eggs, home fries and sausage patties for Craig, ham for Bill. We didn’t have to wait long for our food. Our first impression was the size of the piece of ham that I got, along with the 3 nice sausage patties that came with Craig’s meal. We didn’t hesitate, we dug right in. How was it? The eggs were nice size, the home fries were perfect, the ham was great and Craig said the sausage was really good. By the time I finished my eggs and home fries I was a little worried because I still had a lot of ham to go, as well as another piece of toast. Craig appeared to be thinking the same thing. By the time we finished we had watched a steady stream of customers pulling in and coming into the diner and we knew why. The breakfast we had just eaten was very, very good! No complaints about anything, including the price, which was $4.25 each and a dollar for a coffee. We just couldn’t get over how good that breakfast was! I personally didn’t eat again until supper. Only about 15-20 minutes from Mechanicsburg or Carlisle, this is a place that we would visit again. Oh, and by the way, they have TV and free wireless internet.
