Yankee Doodle Diner – Lemoyne

On Tuesday November 2, 2010 the breakfast bloggers drove over to Lemoyne in search of the Riverview Diner. Instead we found that the restaurant has changed hands and is now called the Yankee Doodle Diner. Located at 902 North Front Street in Lemoyne the new management has been operating the diner for two months. They have a modern looking, stainless steel exterior along with easy access from Front Street and off street parking. The hostess seated us promptly and took our drink order. Our first impressions were good, it was nicely decorated, shiny clean and had a decent crowd. We were fortunate to have a very good waitress (Jessica) who took our standard order of 2 eggs, home fries and sausage (links), priced at only $3.25. They also offered ham, bacon and scrapple.She allowed us to specifically order the type of home fries we wanted, such as lightly browned, well browned or crispy.  There was music playing, although we couldn’t pinpoint the source, but it was low volume and sounded ok. Jessica soon arrived back with our breakfasts. The plates were very big, unlike some places we have been. Jessica even offered us syrup for our sausage, a personal favorite and the first place that has offered it. The eggs were good, the home fries were excellent and the sausage links were good, not the largest we have had, but not the smallest either. Jessica checked on us a few times and offered coffee refills every time. Overall we had a pretty good breakfast and enjoyed our visit. This is a place that we would stop in again. Our bill was $10.22 for two people, a very good deal.
