Diner
“This is THE must visit food attraction in Erie, PA. Only open in the warm months, if you’ve never been to Sara’s, well.. you just have to try it (and be sure to get their ice cream). Eat here before or after visiting the beach, Waldameer park, or Presque Isle State Park.”

Bakery
“Bill's Bakery has been making fresh breads for over seventy years. Their sliced Italian bread and pepperoni balls are the best in town. They do sell out fast, so it is best to arrive before 10 am or place an order for the next day. They are a cash only business.”
