Yelp and Google Rating


Hinkle’s Restaurant has been a staple in the Columbia community for decades. It is known as a local meeting place, especially at breakfast, where folks can catch up with friends and neighbors.

The restaurant is now owned by John Sipe, Tom Davis, and Robin Ortman, who have more than 70 years combined management experience at Hinkle’s Restaurant and the former pharmacy, as well as other operations.

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner

Might as well admit it: there’s only one place in town where friends can sit in the same booth and enjoy the same recipes as their grandparents!

Private Meeting Spaces

With our newly designed restaurant and dining area, you can now book a private meeting room to chat, eat, and make memories with friends.

Murphy's Mercantile Gift Shop

We added a special gift shop, Murphy’s Mercantile & Co, so you can grab something special and unique for a loved one!

Where you'd expect to find a soda fountain... and actually do!

A Place For Friends

Our welcoming, care-free environment is what keeps our customers coming back for more year after year; decade after decade for some.

I stop in at Hinkle’s for breakfast or lunch whenever I am on a antique-hunting trip to Columbia, Pennsylvania. The home-style food is very good, the prices are very reasonable and the service is friendly. If you can’t find street parking, there is a lot in back of the restaurant. Hinkle’s is a great alternative to the chain restaurants. I especially recommend the restaurant if you are a visitor to the town.
