About Us

"The best restaurant in Limekiln!"


Andy Pepper's story began more than three decades ago, when it was known as The Luncheonette, a tiny breakfast and lunch stand nestled in the back of the Lancaster County Farmer's Market.  Kristina Kochel spent most of her working life at that stand, and in 2007, purchased the business. With much time and many changes, The Luncheonette morphed into Andy Pepper's, relocated to the Oley Valley, and became a family business. Now, Tina co-owns Andy Pepper's with her husband Andy, who you'll see standing behind the counter on your next visit. You'll also often find their daughters Madison and Jordan, and son Nate, in the back of the house helping out. 

Andy Pepper's prides itself on being family-owned and operated, supporting other local businesses, and creating the freshest homemade food in Berks county. Our customers come first - every menu item is wholly customizable and adaptable to your needs and preferences. We have gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. We guarantee that on your next visit, you'll find a clean, bright restaurant filled with fresh food and smiling faces.
