Haags semi downhill - Shartlesville

Had the full Haags meal last week- meats, coleslaw and veg still good, but the filling and potpie are not stellar any more, and THEY SEEM TO HAVE LOST THEIR BAKER. The pie crusts are pressed into a form and the bread is commercial. Tho the filling of the shoofly was still good and molassey. Bummer. Still a bargain, a pleasant experience and a bit of a step into the past, but not an exemplary experience any more.

Judging by my visits to a couple of Amish/Mennonite groceries this trip, there seem to be more mixes and less scratch cooking going on overall these days. Understandable given the bulk daily baking and cooking these folks do, but sad nevertheless.

Any superior recommendations for traditional cooking in the I-78 corridor between Bethlehem and Harrisburg? I saw mentions of the Kempton Hotel and the Willows in E.Texas on another food board.
