Grilled Sticky has a new home in Happy Valley

STATE COLLEGE – The Grilled Sticky has a new home.

The Corner Room, one of the hospitality properties owned by Hotel State College & Company, will now be downtown’s “new home” to get Ye Olde College Diner’s famous Grilled Stickies. The New York Times described grilled stickies as “an elongated cinnamon roll that, after baking, is reheated on a greased grill and served piping hot, sometimes with ice cream on top.” They were featured in Rick Sebak’s 1993 documentary “Pennsylvania Diners & Other Roadside Restaurants.”

Doughnut shops on the rise in Happy Valley

If you thought doughnuts could only be eaten for breakfast… think again.

With all of the new doughnut shops on the rise, you can eat a specialty doughnut at any time of the day. Here are a few of the most popular:

Peace, Love, and Little Donuts: They are finally here, in State College! Specializing in miniature doughnuts, Peace, Love, and Little Donuts is the latest talk of the town. State College has always been in need of a groovy and funkadelic doughnut and coffee shop. Mix and match the frosting and toppings and you'll never have a dull doughnut again.

More than Just a Fad: The Brunch Revolution

Brunch is hardly a new idea, but as it becomes more accessible to those living outside the realm of posh eateries and hefty menu prices, it has been experiencing a revitalization. Now, there’s no need to be in a big city or to pay top dollar for a fantastic brunch experience. Top restaurants in destinations such as State College are jumping on the bandwagon and offering up world-class brunch menus that easily fit every taste. Whether you’re looking for a hearty, belly-filling breakfast, or a light and elegant start to your day, or even a cure for a wicked hangover, you can find it all.
