If you’re following along on our recent road trip…
- First stop was Columbus, Ohio
This time, it’s Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Though we took several day-trips during our stay in Pennsylvania (more on those later), the bulk of our time was spent in Lancaster, where Erik’s parents live and the family reunion was held. We don’t see his parents often, so it was good to spend time with them. The reunion was a fantastic time of reminiscing with family Erik hadn’t seen in years, and for me it was nice to finally put faces to some of the names/stories I’d heard about for so long!
Our first morning in Lancaster we enjoyed breakfast at On Orange, a cozy eatery located on Orange Street in downtown Lancaster that offers a small selection of vegan options.
I ordered the Swedish pancakes, and Erik ordered the Swedish waffles. Both are made with organic oats and served with applesauce and Earth Balance. We also each added a side of their vegan sausage. The servings were huge–we should have shared! Oh my word was it good! The pancakes and waffles were so fluffy and moist, and we loved eating them with the applesauce spread on top. The soy-based sausage was good as well and had a nice herb blend. We were so impressed that we all went back a week later for breakfast before starting the trek back home.
If you’re in the Lancaster area, stop in for a bite. Everyone was warm and welcoming, and I think you’d enjoy the food. On Orange is located at 108 W. Orange Street, Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Our favorite meal in Lancaster may have been on our last night there–we braved the heat and stepped outside to grill veggie kabobs, potatoes, tomatoes and corn on the cob.
Looking back, it was a magical night as we kicked back in the sunshine and shared good food, laughter, stories and pictures from the previous week. There couldn’t have been a better way to end our time together!
Next stop: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!
