Lemoyne Family Restaurant – Lemoyne

Lemoyne Family Restaurant

On Tuesday December 7, 2010 we decided to try out the Lemoyne Family Restaurant at 247 Hummel Avenue. This is another little restaurant that we’ve been driving past for years but neither of us has ever stopped in. It seems that it has remained unchanged for years too, that bright yellow sign has been there as long as I can remember. So, not knowing what we would find, we parked across the street (no parking lot) and walked in. It was a little larger than we expected, seat your self service, a fairly large dining room with lots of tables and booths. It seemed a little dated, but everything looked to be in good shape, lots of ceiling fans and wood paneling. We sat down and the waitress took our drink order and gave us menu’s. We ordered the usual, which is 2 eggs, home fries and meat, Craig ordered the sausage patties, Bill ordered the bacon. Looking around we noticed a large table of about 8 guys, a couple of singles, and a booth with two ladies. One of the most impressive features were the big windows. The dining area sits a few feet higher than the street and the large windows give a great view. After about 5 minutes or so our food arrived on 4 plates. Wow, what a breakfast. Nice large plates with perfect eggs, perfect home fries and toast, along with a second (salad size) plate with generous portions of sides, 4 large strips of bacon and 2 sausage patties the size of hamburgers. the second plate was also a bonus because it gave us a place to put our toast, something that we have complained about at many other places because we hate having to sit our toast on the table. We dug in and it tasted just as good as it looked. Coffee came with the meal and refills were frequent and our waitress took our plates promptly when we were finished eating. Our meal was $11.98 and well worth the money, we would definitely come back here again as this was one of the very best breakfasts that we have experienced.

  1. I used to live a few doors down from this place and ate there all the time. Besides breakfast, lunch and dinner also have good portions and prices. On the weekends the place would be packed for breakfast so we would have to go early to get a seat. I have not lived near there for over 15 years but my wife and I still talk about how great it was to have a place like that just out our door.
