Lancaster City Restaurant Week Fall 2020 is still going strong! This season of Restaurant Week couldn’t be more important. Our local restaurants need our support to weather the economic hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Order takeout, dine-out, or cater a meal for your family or office to help out our fabulous restaurants!


Every spring and fall, Lancaster City Restaurant Week highlights the diverse and very delicious dining scene Lancaster City has to offer. Wyatt Behringer, Marketing Manager for Visit Lancaster City, is back with another installment of “Visit Lancaster City Dines Around!”


Wyatt’s next stop of Lancaster City Restaurant Week Fall 2020 was a new take on a well-established name in Lancaster City, the Commonwealth Kitchen & Cafe located at 420 Pearl St. Lancastrians have long been familiar with “Commonwealth,” but they recently made the move to Pearl St. and now their new location is a delightful addition to Lancaster City’s southwest neighborhood.

Wyatt was joined by his mom, Deb, who has been to practically every Lancaster City restaurant. This season of Lancaster City Restaurant Week is a little different and restaurants don’t have to offer a special deal to participate in the event. That didn’t stop many from offering their own special deals for customers to enjoy. Commonwealth Kitchen & Cafe’s LCRW deal is breakfast or brunch for two that includes any two entrees and two coffees for $25.

Brunch starts with coffee and this meal was no exception. Both Wyatt and Deb got coffees to start and soaked in the beautiful weather on Commonwealth’s patio while awaiting their food. Wyatt ordered a classic breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon, and home fries, and Deb ordered the chicken & waffles. Chef/owner Rachael Reinmiller is famous for creating dishes from fresh & local ingredients with intense flavor notes. The Breakfast Home Fries are among the best we have ever placed on our fork!

Stop by or stroll up to Commonwealth’s Kitchen & Cafe in Southwest Lancaster City.  The restaurant’s Chief Operating Officer, Michael Sirianni is already engaging with the neighborhood groups and looks forward to seeing the restaurant serve as a bright center for community in West Lancaster Jewels. Wyatt will certainly be back and looks forward to taking advantage of their large patio throughout the autumn season.


This Lancaster City Restuarant Week, it is vital to be aware of the safety protocols in place at each establishment you visit. Plus, if you make a reservation, plan to keep it! Every reservation counts. Get out (or order-in) and support our local & independent restaurants in the City of Lancaster now until Septemeber 20th.
