We happened upon this little gem in Lancaster County, Delicious ice cream made on site. Wonderful flavors, hard to decide, but that's ok because we will return. Great atmosphere tables are not on top of each other and there are also seats in from of the fireplace.

Aromas Del Sur

This restaurant was opened in October 2010 by a group of three Colombian sibilings. We like to say we serve Spanish food but most of our dishes are cooked and prepared with Colombian influence. We wanted to bring a little part of South America to the Ephrata and Lancaster area and educate people on our lifestyle. Please come by and enjoy something we are very passionate about. We have delicious appetizers which come out fast and are filling along with our plentiful entrees. We serve your typical dishes such as pork, steak, and chicken which are usually always accompanied by their rice and beans. These dishes are prepared with Colombian spices and seasoning, but are not spicy as many believe just flavorful. We have options for reservation, take out, BYOB, and large parties. TAKE A LOOK AT OUR NEW WEBSITE!!!Please feel free to call during business hours.

Olde Lincoln House

Reviewed By MeLow4 - Branchburg, New Jersey

We popped in on our way to our hotel after a day of shopping and going on the train ride with Santa. The server was really lovely and very kind to little children. They ever drew her pictures which she happily accepted. The food was out pretty quickly and we gobbled it down. The place itself is really amazing, we got look at some of the photos on our way out. The cherry on top was that it was very reasonably priced given the level of service and food. We will happily be back on our next vacation to Lancaster.

Don't be fooled by the name! Yogurtworks offers iced custard, gelati, ice cream, sorbet and Italian water ice as well. It's self-serve and you can mix and match to your liking, including numerous toppings. The staff was very friendly, offering samples and explanations, as it was my first time there on someone's recommendation. You pay by the weight, and it was well worth it, as the fruit flavors were real as opposed to artificial flavors. The place looked very clean, and I enjoyed the comfortable couches. Tables were also available.

As of April 2015, the exterior was remodeled for eating outside. It's along a highway, so it's not going to be a relaxing kind of thing, but it's a Dairy Queen and how can you go wrong? Primarily student help but the staff is well trained and the lines go quickly. I stop by here frequently - more than I should.

Reviewed By barbarachristy - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

Stopped on way home for something to eat after a very long day. Had been here once before with a friend, and enjoyed the food. Brought 2 people with me. I had prime rib, cooked to perfection, with a baked potato. They both had pasta Alfredo with shrimp, scallops and crab, and absolutely raved about it! Love the food here, and the portions are more than filling. I always have some extra to take home! It is always busy here. I would say because the food here is wonderful, and affordably priced.
