A Power Ranking of Carlisle’s Restaurants

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Dickinson chapter.

At Dickinson, we are lucky so have a college town full of fantastic cuisine options. Whether you’re craving noodles, pizza or lighter fare, Carlisle’s restaurants have something to offer you. Although this is not a complete list of the dining options in town, here are Dickinson students’ most-frequented restaurants.


Issei Noodle

Rating: 4/4 Red Devils 

I have sporadic cravings for Issei’s pad Thai at least twice a week. This place is my go-to for when my parents come and take me out to eat. If you’re a noodle fan, Issei will never disappoint.


Rating: 4/4 Red Devils

Although it is on the pricier side, Brick offers a wide variety of comfort foods. Brick serves everything from traditional American fare to unique, unconventional dishes. If you’re ever at Brick, I recommend the fish tacos!

Carlisle Thai Cuisine (Formerly Known as White Elephant)

Rating: 3/4 Red Devils

Although I am a huge fan of Thai food, I had to give Carlisle Thai Cuisine a three-devil rating for a few reasons. The biggest reason would be the price. Although the food is high-quality, the restaurant itself is less accessible for college students on a budget. Additionally, I prefer Issei’s Pad Thai.

Café Bruges

Rating: 3/4 Red Devils

The mussels here are absolutely fabulous and the waffles are to die for! However, I find that the menu at Bruge is very hearty. If you’re in the mood for something light yet filling (that isn’t a salad), the entrées may be a bit on the heavy side for you.


The Carlisle Diner

Rating: 2/4 Red Devils

As far as diners go, the Carlisle Diner is pretty average. They have food, and they’re open late. If you’re hungry after a night out and nothing else is open, the Diner is the place to go.
