Perkins Family Restaurant – Camp Hill

On Tuesday December 21, 2010 we decided to try out Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery in Camp Hill at 7 Erford Road. They had plenty of parking and a nice exterior, but also a nice interior and seating area. The entry featured a case of baked goods that looked extremely good and the prices didn’t seem too bad. We had excellent service here from the moment we walked in the door. Our waitress was very nice and helped us through the ordering process, and it was a process because they had so many great choices. Eggs, home fries or hash browns, sides of bacon, sausage links or patties, Canadian bacon, and toast, white, wheat, texas toast or pancakes.  We looked around as we waited and the place was busy, the help was nice to everyone and the seats were real comfy. Our food came in about 10 minutes, but it was worth the wait. Large plates just full of good food. Ample portions of potatoes, nice large eggs perfectly cooked, 4 sausage links for Craig and 3 pieces of canadian bacon for Bill. This was quite an impressive meal! It took a while to to eat and I was worried that I might not be able to finish because it was so much. The toast even seemed large, even though we got wheat, not Texas toast. Craig got a carafe of coffee, and I was offered a refill on my coke, which the waitress brought in a “to go” cup so I could take it with me. Any more food and they would have to carry us out of there! This was truly a superior breakfast to rival the best that we’ve had in 45 reviews. At $19.46 for two it wasn’t cheap, but we felt it was worth it. We aren’t real big on chain restaurants, but this was an exception. Perkins easily beat Denny’s and Bob Evans in every category, and I predict they will score right up there with the very best privately operated restaurants we have reviewed. Fantastic breakfast!
