When we don't feel like "Penndutch" food, we go to Jennie's Diner in Lancaster. Truthfully, other than a VERY friendly customer base, I can't put my finger on anything special about it. Just basic good food at basic good prices, but a bunch of other people here seem to think that it's superior, and there must be something that keeps bringing us back. I'm not terribly fond of breakfast buffets, but people I know that are swear by Shady Maple over in East Earl (but the line is certainly long, the times I've been dragged there). Stay away from Miller's in Lancaster; it was great in the 60's and 70's, but has since become a tourist trap. Plain & Fancy Farm in Bird in Hand is one of the better "family style" places if you want something social (I always enjoy meeting the people at my table).
