"Thoroughly enjoy this local Fairmount eatery. Sunday brunch is terrific as is every day dinner. Service and staff are friendly and attentive. Always a good choice. In nice weather, wonderful to sit outside. Gets busy for Sunday brunch and may be a little boisterous if its packed, but its still a great place. Always a good neighborhood go to."

"I was visiting my friend who just moved to Philadelphia and we found this spot on open table. It is situated in an up and coming part of Philly, close walk to the museum of art. I thoroughly enjoyed the eclectic menu and the friendly service.
We had the special--Fig french toast and the egg platter breakfast--we shared them both. My friend had a bloody Mary that turned out to have just the right kick to it--a bit spicy. We sat for a long time and the waitress was very friendly and most of all, they did not rush us out. The place is quaint and comfortable. It appears there a lot of locals that frequent this restaurant.
I highly recommend it for the food, service and ambiance."

"Dined at Hickory Lane before but this time decided to "introduce" a better cuisine to our 6-yo granddaughter.
Being in the area didn't hurt either :)
While we had a 4:30 reservation, we got to HL slightly earlier. Although the kitchen was still closed we were greeted very warmly and seated immediately. Our waiter took our drinks order and gave us plenty of time to look over the menu.
5 mins after the kitchen was 'officially open' he took our order and was constantly attentive throughout the whole meal.
We started with the cheese plate, I then opted for Red Pepper bisque and the famous HL burger, while DW went for Duck Raechel and GD - Mac-n-Cheese
Totally delicious and nice portions too
Wonderful time and great meal!"

"We've been here a few times for dinner and always enjoyed it - we were excited to try it for brunch. We found the menu heavy on breakfast/egg items and sweet items (french toast, etc.). My husband who wanted more lunch than breakfast was disappointed. They did have 3 sandwiches and one salad, but most of the menu was breakfast items. So go with that in mind. I had the eggs benedict and it was very good; our friend had the waffle, which I frankly thought was over-priced. One smallish waffle with a few stawberry slices on top for $10. Coffee was good and the service was very nice. Would go for an occasion, not just for the heck of it."

"We were able to secure an outdoor table for brunch and the restaurant was most accommodating to allow us to keep the table even with part of the party running late.
We ordered and while the food was tasty the service was spotty. The food came out at all different times and we also had to wait 15 minutes for our check to be settled. Nevertheless the staff was friendly and the food was good.

"We enjoyed Sunday brunch before heading off to the Phila Museum of Art, a 5 minute walk away. We've eaten here before, and I have to say, it was better the first couple of times we tried it. I had the Tex Mex poached eggs creation, and it was mostly tortilla chips coated in salsa, with a little chorizo as a base for 2 poached eggs. Don't think I'd get it again, but the 2 teenage boys dining with us enjoyed it! My bloody mary was really spicy, with too much black pepper. Nothing special. My husband enjoyed the duck hash, and the cherry french toast special looked fabulous! All in all, a little disappointing."

"Had the burger and the wife had the chicken. Burger was good; however, I ordered it medium rare and it came out more medium. Drinks were fun!"
