Serving Homestyle Breakfast & Lunch 7 Days a week

Start your day right at Avanti’s where we consider every guest part of the family and where the coffee never runs empty. Rooted deep in Erie tradition, Avanti’s is a favorite local stop to enjoy traditional American-style breakfast and lunch, served hot 7 days a week and offering delicious weekend brunch specials. 

Whether you’re a local or a hungry traveler, Avanti’s is the place to stop for a photo-worthy meal. Bring the whole family or just yourself, either way, we promise you won’t walk away broke, hungry, or disappointed!

our Specialties

We serve breakfast all day! Stop in to try classics like eggs and bacon, a breakfast sammie, or pancakes and French toast topped with blueberries and paired with bacon, ham, sausage links or patties. Choose from classic omelets like cheese, western, supreme, or Italian favorites like meatball and Sicilian (Italian sausage, provolone and red sauce) or new creations like the bacon cheeseburger omelet and ‘Which Came First?’ (eggs with grilled chicken, roasted red peppers and pepper jack cheese).

Looking for something a little more adventurous? Try the frittata, a combo of eggs, pepperoni, Italian sausage, peppers and onions, or the ‘Quickie’, scrambled eggs with your choice of ham, bacon or sausage and cheese. Both are served with your choice of bread: thick cut Italian, wheat, marbled rye, raisin, or choose an English muffin, croissant or bagel.

Also open daily for lunch, you can enjoy the nostalgic taste of fried bologna or salami sandwiches (they’re a favorite of the aptly named ‘bologna ladies’ group who stop in once a month to catch up over several hours and close to a dozen fried bologna sandwiches!)
