Summit Diner

791 North Center Avenue, Somerset, PA - (814) 445-7154
The Summit is a 1960 Swingle diner that has seen some pretty extensive remodeling yet still exudes the soul of a classic diner. Breakfast platters are fresh and generously proportioned. Pies are homemade, and are a particular point of pride at the Summit.

A simple breakfast like sausage and eggs just seems to taste better in a real diner atmosphere.
