Scranton, PA – Changes In Longitude, a well-respected food and travel blog, published a story recently about restaurants in Scranton. They covered a lot of ground and put together quite a good list.

Changes in Longitude

Changes in Longitude started as a personal adventure for Michael and Larissa Milne of Upper Dublin, PA. They sold all their stuff and set out for a year of travel around the world.

That was back in 2011.

They’re still on the move, building a compendium of places to visit. They’ve been featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Smithsonian Magazine and National Geographic Traveler. They have a book in the works.

So what did Michael and Larissa think of the Scranton foodie scene?

They liked it.

“Bon Appetit magazine named Scranton “America’s foodiest small town” and based on our tasting foray there, it just may live up to that billing.” – A Foodie Taste of Scranton


Beyond Barbecue

The story hit all popular touchstones – biscuits and barbecue, burgers and breakfast. They found some of the places we’ve talked about in the past, like Sunrise Biscuit Kitchen.

But Scranton has an eclecticism (can I say that?) that defies easy categories. Southern food, old and new – yes, we’ve got that.

But next time Michael and Larissa come to visit, I’d suggest a trip to Curry Blossom (farm-to-fork Indian), Sandwhich (feeding a generation of PA’s finest) and Lantern (fusion-Asian). Then there’s Sage (Persian), Min Ga (Korean) and Elaine’s (just fantastic).

Hey, I’m just a mattress guy, but the Milnes might enjoy these posts from our blog:

Scranton really is a foodie town and it’s great to get recognition from prestigious blogs. In fact, the whole Triangle has had a foodie explosion. Food trucks, craft breweries, Downtown Durham’s renaissance, the well-established Raleigh food scene – even Cary has some destination restaurants. I like Cafe 121 on Chatham Street in Cary – the fried string beans are to die for. Don’t get me started.

Thanks again to Michael and Larissa to visiting CH. Next time, come by the store and we’ll ride around in the Mini Cooper.

Sleep soundly,
