With a mission to bring downtown Lancaster high quality, fresh, organic and locally sourced foods, The Bread Pedaler delivered. A friend recently recommended this relatively new spot (est. 2018) at 116 W. Orange Street for a casual breakfast meeting and I was eager to try it.

The cozy cafe has the feel of a coffee shop, but a full menu of delightful breakfast and lunch fare including sandwiches, soups, salads, and even specialty tacos! There are a few specific choices for the kids, including a nice breakfast option of an egg, meat, and toast for only $3. Since our visit was for breakfast, I chose the Mediterranean breakfast bowl that was served with a spinach and kale mix, two eggs, tapenade, tomatoes, tzatziki, and toast. The portion was a perfect size to jumpstart my day, and the ingredients were fresh and delicious, just as advertised.

The coffee was fresh and hot, and the environment was very comfortable for a casual conversation. I’m looking forward to coming back to try the lunch selections soon! Follow The Bread Pedaler online for weekend specials and the weekly soups. The doors are open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday at the corner of Orange Street and Water Street in downtown Lancaster.
