Brownstone Cafe a Keeper

Did you ever fall in love with a restaurant? You know … that one spot that has good food at a reasonable cost with a friendly crew that wants to call you family? That would be the Brownstone Cafe in Middletown, Pennsylvania just arond the corner from the Harrisburg International Airport.

This classic downtown cafe was origonally a bank. In fact many banking organizations owned the building that the cafe currently occupies. Owners are Keith & Carole Matinchek. Keith is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, Class of 1980.

There are many work-arounds for the gluten-free diet like a pan-roasted pork chop with mashed potatoes and the vegtable of the day. Or perhaps you’d rather have the Shepherd’s pie, or fish grilled or baked with vegtables. Occassionally I’ll ask for grilled beef liver with mashed potatoes, extra butter, and vegtables. Or perhaps a desert of creamy rice pudding with coffee.

Whatever your request the team at Brownstone will be anxious to please wheather it’s one of the lengthy list of specials, the smaller appetite menu, or exactly what you want.  Put this one on the list of places to experience and go back to often.
