Tioga is a Native American word meaning “where two rivers meet.” Owners Maureen Dymond and Peter Byrnes, Pennsylvania natives who grew up in nearby Forkston, wanted their bistro to represent where city and small-town sensibilities meet. Toga Bistro offers a fun twist on its bistro offers by incorporating dishes inspired by films playing at the local art deco Dietrich Theater and even plays the current film’s soundtrack at the bistro. The bistro is a great place to visit if you’re looking to enjoy excellent, contemporary foods in a small town. Tunkhannock is known for its antiques and bed and breakfasts.
All of the bistro’s offerings are conveniently located on its website. Think classic bistro food: paninis, soups, coffee and tea. Food here is a taken up a notch, though. There’s no such thing as chicken noodle soup here. Try cream of asparagus and lobster bisque. Choose the full sandwich and soup or salad, or pair a half size of each. Deserts rotate regularly.
Best of all, this is one of the most affordable local restaurants. Coffee ranges from a cup of drip for $1.89 to a salad for $10.25.
The salads and sandwiches are simple in the best sense at Tioga bistro Tunkhannock PA. Try the sweet chili chicken with grilled chicken, sweet chili sauce, cucumber slices, shredded carrots and romaine lettuce in a wrap, or the cordon bleu wrap with Black Forest ham and oven roasted chicken wrapped up with Swiss cheese and homemade mustard sauce on a choice of wrap. Visitors recommend the Brooklynite for newcomers: a roasted turkey Reuben grilled on rye with sauerkraut, 1000 island dressing, and Swiss cheese.
You won’t find many cafes serving soft pretzels, either. They’re a visitor favorite. Tioga bistro Tunkhannock PA offers four kinds: plain, cheddar cheese, whole grain mustard, and cinnamon sugar.
