The Northern Light is a cozy espresso bar nestled along Courthouse Square with friendly service and a warm atmosphere. It's sure to warm you up with their many choices of distinctive coffee, tea, and chai. More popular choices are homemade smoothies, biscotti, muffins, cookies, and other desserts. The best thing about this espresso bar is the atmosphere--2 floors, one of which is a comfortable loft, complete with tables that overlook the bottom floor as well as a plush sofa for people to sit and two flat screen computers with free high-speed internet for customer use.
Scott's Grocery has been a great convenience serving the metropolitan Scranton area for a long while. It has noted convenience by being located on a much-traveled street in downtown Scranton. Whether you need snacks, toilet paper, or a forty oz., Scott's is the place to go. Beer is sold until 1:00 a.m., one of the only places to sell alcohol that late at night. The service is polite, and they always comply with state liquor board requirements.
Like any other neighborhood pizzeria, Antonio's serves up classic pizza and stromboli varieties along with many choices of hoagies and sandwiches. It's family-owned, and has been a land-mark in West Pittston for at least 2 generations. The pizza is fresh, the recipes are original, and if you're in the mood for something with sauce, Antonio's is a good idea.
Joseph Lombardo, MD, with degrees from Scranton University and Loyala University is a great physician for all ages. It is a family practice in downtown Pittston. The wait times for treatment are often short, and they accept medical assistance, which is great for the elderly, or those on the state's medical access plan. Dr. Lombardo is to the point, and makes you feel at home with his friendly demeanor.
Lackawanna college (formerly Lackawanna Jr. College) is a great college to attend if you want a 2 year associate degree at a decent price. I like the fact that they offer many classes at different time slots, including evening classes, which is great for parents or working people. They offer many fields of education ranging from human services to business. The classes are small, which results in attention for every student given by a caring teacher.
