Historic Revere Tavern
Drive out into the country east of the Route 30 East outlets, take a look at the brick exterior, and you’ll know it’s a classy place. It’s also unpretentious and stocked with a great menu.

Olde Lincoln House
Venture to this underrated, elegant, slightly old-fashioned place, housed in one of Ephrata’s oldest buildings, for a great dinner, especially burgers.

Sugarplums & Tea
Not just a “ladies’ tea place,” but a classy, small, out-of-the-way gathering place in the middle of subdivisions, with great sandwiches, desserts and yes, tea.
403 Bank Barn Ln, Lancaster, PA 17602
Near Lancaster Country Club, host to the LPGA U.S. Women’s Open, definitely a place to go to celebrate a wedding or an anniversary.
