Dining at Altius was the best restaurant experience ever. The food was fabulous, the service was fabulous, the people were fabulous, and the view was fabulous. We sat in Lizzy’s section and she was absolutely phenomenal.

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.

My prime rib was very fatty but everything else was delicious. The waitress gave us free dessert for the inconvenience which was nice!
