Ride to Eat Report: Prospect Diner

Yesterday I stopped for a slightly hung-over breakfast at the small rail car Prospect Diner near Columbia, PA. It was my first visit but surely not the last. Highly recommended for motorcyclists. When I arrived at 0845 the joint was packed and getting busier. The parking lot is small and gravel, so bring a side stand plate. According to my diner reference book, the Prospect is a 1955 Kullman unit.

After uploading breakfast, I continued west over the historic Wrightsville Bridge, after which I headed generally south thru PA on twisty routes 624, 525 and 851, then into MD on 24 thru scenic Rocks S.P. before turning east back to DE.

That bridge is a real beauty!

And thanks for sharing some routes. I know zero about PA riding. Gonna file those away.

Rachael: That whole area near the west bank of the Susq. R. in PA down into MD is full of tasty, well-maintained (for PA) roads with very little traffic; the tourists tend to be on the other side in Lancaster County. Keep it on the DL. :^)

Wendy: Let's do that. Kumm Esse Diner would be good some day, too; Fuzzy can haul a bunch of pies back to NY in her sidecar. :^)
