About the restaurant
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.

We have been taking our granddaughters to the Flying Egg before they return to college each fall - it is a super fun tradition. This week, we celebrated our 10 year old granddaughter’s double digit birthday at the Flying Egg and she had a delicious brunch and birthday treat brought by the waitress. What a cute surprise ! We do love to visit the Flying Egg!

We enjoyed our Father's Day dinner at McCalls, a place we love to visit! My husband had the Dad Platter and enjoyed it and I had the Garlic Grilled Cheese - which is always delicious! As far as drinks, 4 thumbs up for Easy Peasy (hard pink lemonade) and the Mexican style lager!
