As far as the bar goes, it is definitely for the older crowd. However, it is also a great sit down place, which has amazing pizza, calzones, dipping sauce, and more. I highly recommend the calzones, which are gigantic in size, deep fried, and absolutely amazing in taste. I take new people there all the time when I'm in town, it's just that good!
For the price you are paying, it's pretty decent Chinese food. I've certainly had better quality, but on a college budget I can forgo excellence for pretty good. Used to stop in there and eat, which doesn't have a lot of seating but come to think of it, I've never seen anyone else eat in (besides the people I was with, of course). I tried to get them deliver one time, but they wouldn't for some reason and that was a pain. Oh well, like I said... it's all right for what you are paying for.
This used to be one of my favorite pizzerias, due to their wonderful white broccoli pizza with ricotta and these mini calzones they made which were only 2.50 a pop. One of those was plenty filling and greasy enough. But what happened to them? Where did they go? I found out about them two years ago and the last year or so I have no seen them out once! They won't special order make them, they have to be out to get them. But still pretty good in spite of that.
Their cheese fries are the bomb, their burgers are fabulous, but if you want a real treat you must go there on the weekend! That's when they have some fabulous specials... one Saturday I had the best Eggs Benedict I have ever eaten. Another time I went on a Sunday and my friend ordered Lasagna, it was to die for! (She let me finish it for her too, I was in heaven that day). The service is little to be desired but the food is worth it!
Fabulous food. Great service (ask for the waitress Geri, tell her Chelsea sent you and she will treat you good... I promise). Good drinks (especially wine). Nice atmosphere. Clean bathrooms. All you could want in a restaurant. I highly recommend Bruschetta, Caesar Salad, Chicken Gonzola (sp?) pasta and Eggplant Parmigiana. But even if you don't like the foods I'm suggesting, they have an extensive Italian food menu and some pretty tasty desserts to boot.
This is not the place to go if you want coffee. But if you want to play pool, hear people sing karaoke, and have a good time in a tiny little bar, now we're talking. The drinks are good (one or two were a little strong), the bartenders are friendly, and the prices are reasonable. Bring cash unless you are planning on spending over ten dollars, they won't let you use a card otherwise.
I went here once on a Friday with my boyfriend and his parents... only to find out that we were the only people who'd be eating there for the next hour or so. The service was okay, the food was fine, but it was nothing spectacular. I hear it's a good place to go to for drinks, but I have not had first hand experience in that department.
I absolutely love the outside of the building, it always reminds me something I would see in New York City. Moving on, Molly B's (as I commonly hear it called) has a nice food selection and a fabulous happy hour. I hear people who go there for drinks, more than they do for food. I ordered Shepard's pie there once, it was all right but my boyfriend at the time ordered a pasta dish and that was delightful. The salad was really good too. A definitely "try at least once" place. Even if you don't like the food, go back for the drinks!
An amazing must try cafe, especially on these cold Scranton days and nights. With friendly service, comfortable couches, and a wide variety of drinks this is a great place to unwind or catch up on some work. I recommend going upstairs and sitting at the table overlooking the 1st floor if you are in the mood to people watch. A fabulous cheap date idea, no matter if you want to have your drink there or to go. Plus if you are a University of Scranton student, show your royal card and you get 10% off! Last but not least, I highly recommend the raspberry chai with whip cream. Delish!
Aroma is a laid back cafe that offers a variety of coffees and foods such as omelets, breakfast sandwiches, french toast, baked goods, panini sandwiches, regular sandwiches, and salads. On top of all the delicious options, Aroma keeps their caf very clean and they also have seats and tables, a flat screen TV, a chess set, a sofa, a comfy lounge chair, a fireplace, and a bookshelf loaded with a vast assortment of books. It's definitely a great place for college students to relax, especially since they have free WiFi. I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone who is looking for wonderful food and a nice experience.
