Union & Finch is an American style bistro located at 1528 West Union Street in Allentown offering lunch, dinner and brunch on weekends. The menu consists of casual fare that will include "comfort" foods along with familiar favorites with a twist. We have a seasonal rotation of select items on the menu while keeping our concept simple. Our goal is to offer quality food and drinks at reasonable prices on a daily basis with a mature sense of hospitality and playful vibe. We combine the nostalgia of a long-lost neighborhood joint with a modern bistro setting to create the area’s newest destination for relaxed, casual dining.

Second time attending brunch. Hands down my favorite place in the Lehigh valley area. Will definitely be back for a third time. Can't beat neither the value nor the quality. Service is top notch as well.

For a business meal, this is probably not the best choice -- it got noisy and kind of chaotic. But, our server worked very hard and kept refilling the coffee -- a much appreciated touch. The food was simple and fresh.

The fried chicken was super juicy and flavorful, and overall the food felt like there was a lot of thought and effort behind it.

So good! Loved it, first time there and the service was awesome. Was a tad slow but everyone was so extremely nice and if you needed anything at all they were right there! The food was so good as well! I got the crab pot boy and it was rally good, my grandfather got their burger of the month and he loved it.

The Tuesday Special was a pound of mussels served in a delicious broth. I had asparagus with it, though it usually comes with fries. My companion raved about the burger. AND it's a stone's throw from the house where I grew up!

We had not been back to Union and Finch since pre-pandemic. Their social media posts are what made us return. BREAKFAST POUTINE! It was outstanding. Great service, despite our server being one of two wait staff in the back room. She always had a smile and was very cheerful. We had no problem with the noise level, but those sensitive to loud noises should sit outside.

Everyone enjoyed their meal. I ESPECIALLY enjoyed the poutine with Duck Confit. There was another poutine special two years ago with short rib, carmelized red onion, etc. that was outstanding. The food was great, beer was fresh, and we will be back (even though it's an hour and 45 minutes away...

A hidden gem in an unassuming neighborhood. The feel of a neighborhood bar, think "Cheers", with the menu of a great NY bistro. My new favorite spot...

As per usual Union and Finch delivers with the BEST local brunch around! The Crab Cake Egg Benedict was amazing and nicely paired with a the best Bloody Mary around! This is why we book this place so far in advance every time. We keep coming back for more! Food was fresh and the service is always on point!

Food was excellent. Service was very good. However we sat outside where they had small picnic tables. Ours broke when we sat down. And the second one already had a split in it. Also not very comfortable. They need to update with nicer tables and chairs.

The food was great! The staff was amazing with our 1 year old and very accommodating. We loved being outside and even though there were some brief showers, we didn’t get wet at all or need to move inside which was a huge help. We will definitely be coming back!
