A few buddies and I are headed to Spring and Penns tomorrow. We had planned to eat at Elk Creek Cafe? But it appears to be closed. Any suggestions for good food and beer in the area? Cool atmosphere is a plus...

Is Gamble Mill in Bellefonte too fancy to hit up straight from the stream?

A great place for lunch, or dinner after fishing is Bonfatto's in Bellefonte.

They have some strange flavors of ice cream, and they'll let you taste them all before you order. Better ice cream than the PSU creamery.

Tough to beat a good sammich and a beer for lunch.

Home Delivery > Bonfattos

Same sort of food but better

Don't try the pizza place in Millheim, OIP??, i think that is its name. I walked in there once and left immediately due to the smell.

Millheim Hotel is a good place for a burger and beer. Just don't stay there.

Not going to give you a lunch suggestion because everyone has already done a good job but I'd pay attention to the amount of rain they get. Spring is much higher than it's historical average at all 3 sites and Penn's is running at 460 which is very fishable but they are calling for almost 2 inches of rain between today and tomorrow. If you go, enjoy!

Dear sipe.

This!

Otherwise whatever happened to going to the Penn State Sub shop, there are several to chose from, grabbing a hoagie and sitting on the crick bank eating lunch and watching the river flow?

I couldn't imagine starting a fishing trip without beer in a cooler, just grab one and enjoy the day.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Hofbrau is another option in Bellefonte. Good pizza.

In State College I've been to Killdare's, Bill Pickles, Otto's, and Faccia Lunas. All are good, and acceptable in your fishing attire as long as you're not too fishy.

I can eat a hoagie on a crick bank any day...I'm interested in enjoying more than just fishing on this trip.

I'll second "Champ's". The waitresses have all the "Atmosphere" I need. Oh, and the food is good, and they have some beer too!

If State College is in play, my God man, there's endless options.

Champs is alright but would be far from my first choice.

Bar - Lots to choose but my choice would be American Alehouse and Grill in Toftrees. Nice atmosphere, great burgers.

Brew Pub - since Elk Creek Cafe is out, Otto's is pretty good beer and food. North Atherton St.

Pizza - forget this OIP and Brothers crap. Facia Luna blows them away hands down. Wood fired brick oven pizza. mmm. Home Delivery Pizza Pub is another option, more bar-like atmosphere with better alternative options to pizza, and there's one in Bellefonte and one in State College (South Atherton). But the actual pizza doesn't match Facia Luna.

Breakfast/brunch - Original Waffle Shop. This isn't that crappy place downtown with the sticky buns. There's one on the corner of Blue Course and West College, and another on N. Atherton. At peak times on weekends, a wait is normal, though.

I could go on for a while. What are you looking for, exactly?
