Editor’s Note: Last year, Michael and Nicole Borrell began reviewing Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. Since then, the couple has aimed to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer. LebTown is pleased to be partnering with LVFC to share these reviews with our readers. Bon appétit!

We always love to use Saturday mornings for breakfast dates. Today we visited a place that has been on our list for quite a few months and we finally got a chance to go.

Located in Palmyra, the Caffeination Station can be found at the corner of Forge Road and Broad Street. This standalone coffee shop offers a mix of hot and cold coffee drinks, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches for to-go and dine in enjoyment.

For this morning’s selection we got ourselves two drinks, the iced Mexican mocha ($4.50) and a vanilla cappuccino ($5.50). For our breakfast we got the Hog’s Head Bowl Sandwich ($10) and Mr. Chubby ($12.50).

The iced Mexican mocha was a nice blend of cinnamon and cayenne. For this critic, it was a great choice and made her list of favorite coffee orders. The cappuccino is a classic staple of the other critic, and was enjoyed thoroughly.

The hog’s head bowl is their homemade tater tot bowl filled with two eggs, American cheese, and your choice of meat, which for us today was sausage. The tots were more like home fries and came stacked with everything on top. This is a filling bowl, but the potatoes underneath could have been seasoned more to improve our bites throughout.

Next up is a special on the menu, Mr. Chubby, which comes with two large pieces of French toast accompanied by three slices of bacon, two eggs, cheese, and grape jelly. You could try to eat this as a sandwich, but two things will hold you back, the size of it and the temperature of the French toast. Don’t worry though, I still tried it as a handheld. For me, the best part was the sweet bites that had the jelly included, which made this sandwich pop with flavor.

Our take: This place, nestled along the railroad track in Palmyra, offers up some great dinks and unique spins of classic breakfast sandwiches. The inside is nice with a few tables and some bar seats as well as a couple of comfy chairs to enjoy yourself. The staff is nice, and the food is freshly prepared. For us, we were glad to have made the stop.

We give this place 🥓🥓🥓🥓.

Be on the lookout as we will be starting our Cheesesteak Wars!
