Forklift & Palate


Have you ever had your breakfast in a warehouse?


Eating in a warehouse is not your typical restaurant, but then Forklift & Palate is not your typical restaurant.

Located at the Warehouse Hotel in Manheim, Pennsylvania (right outside Lancaster) the Forklift & Palate offers a restaurant that is both sophisticated and yet casual. You’re as likely to see a family at a in a booth enjoying a meal as you are to see a couple enjoying a date at a table. You might see a team celebrating a big win in the corner HUGE booth or a group of friends relaxing after work. There’s something for everyone at the Forklift & Palate including in the menu.

After we woke up and before heading to the Spooky Nook for a morning of climbing, we headed over to the Forklift & Palate inside the Warehouse Hotel. With foreman clipboards with menus hanging from the wall and some steel structures we knew this wasn’t your typical hotel restaurant. Instead my kids enjoyed the unique atmosphere and the treat of being one of the first families to have breakfast there, since the hotel just opened a few months ago.


The Forklift & Palate menu menu provided some grown up breakfast options for the kids to try while some kid-friendly classics were also available.

My oldest went for toast with a bowl of fruit and enjoyed the new fruits he doesn’t typically get to see.

My youngest sons, ages 7 and 9, went for the grown up french toast. It was lightly battered focaccio with spiced cream cheese and powered sugar. It was a bit too sophisticated taste of my guys but older children, teens, or adults might enjoy this spin on a breakfast favorite.

I would have loved to have tried the french toast but needed a gluten-free option for breakfast. I ordered the Fork Omelet with bacon, Amish farmer cheese, slow roasted tomato, and avocado. I enjoyed the combination of tastes it was more flavorful than your typical omelet. It was huge and definitely what I needed to load me up with energy before I went climbing.

During our visit the breakfast buffet wasn’t available yet… but with that and the above choices you can’t go wrong with a breakfast at the Forklift & Palate.
