About the restaurant
We are a modern restaurant housed in an automotive garage that dates back to the 1940s. During the pre-interstate period of America, people and families often traveled across storied highways such as Route 40, Lincoln Highway or Route 66, encountering regional foods and a variety of cultural influences along the way.

In that spirit, our seasonal menu will be a ‘road trip’ that explores some of those mid-western, southern, south-western, and western dishes and techniques. Just like a garage, we will tinker with and adjust them to put together something that will make your trip to see us memorable.

The restaurant is really cute, love the car theme! Had a watermelon lemonade cider, delicious! They had some music playing, live musician, he was very good. In the restaurant side, had a nice booth for 6. I ordered a burger with brussell sprouts, very good!

About the restaurant
Café Momentum is not a normal restaurant. Café Momentum is a non-profit restaurant that offers a locally sourced, chef-driven menu and serves as a culinary training facility for young people impacted by the juvenile justice system.

Café Momentum’s program teaches critical skills that allow youth to re-enter society in a safe, real-world environment of nurturing accountability. By participating in our program, the youth rotate through every aspect of the restaurant, from waiting tables to washing dishes, while working side-by-side with Chef Peter Henry.

Don't miss our famous smoked fried chicken served with mashed potatoes, ham hock collard greens, buttermilk biscuit, and black pepper gravy.

We are BYOB! $5/person corkage fee.

This is a training restaurant for primarily teens starting out in hospitality. Service is sometimes off the mark but they're willing to learn. I've found that the managers are receptive to any constructive criticism you share. Food has always been well above average, creative and delicious. BYOB is a great plus too, especially in this prohibition state of Pennsylvania.

About the restaurant
Huszar is a charming, family-owned restaurant and tavern featuring homemade Hungarian Old-World Cuisine, specialty craft beer selections, exclusive wine imports, and a full bar.

"With Huszár, we reach back to our roots. My mom would often tell stories of her family life in Hungary, and my dad would often reflect upon his military service there that he was so proud of. However, it was the stories of my grandfather being a proud Huszár, handpicked to serve as an elite soldier on horseback, that I draw my inspiration from. Their stories instilled me with a deep pride in my heritage."

Here are our hours of operation:
Tuesdays - Saturdays 12pm - 8pm
Sundays - 12pm to 7pm

Food delicious, seemed prepared and held in warmer. Sauces excellent that were added to the dishes. Cream of onion soup was very different. Desserts limited at end of day, ordered apricot cookies nothing exceptional to finish off the dinner experience

The wait staff was super attentive and the food was amazing! No rushing. They had the table decorated for my birthday and provided a birthday dessert and no embarrassing hoopla. Would definitely recommend this place.
