Thanks so much for your reply! I just looked up the cafe you mentioned -- it says it's over 40 minutes away from where we will be! I didn't realize the Poconos area was that large. (Excuse my ignorance). We're going to be in Dingmans Ferry, which I understand is a very small, desolate town. Any chance you might know of anything closer to that area? It's near Milford, PA.
I'm really looking forward to our vacation. I'm glad you have so much positive things to say about the area.
awwh - it's so pretty up there i used to live right at the bottom of high point mountain in nj, i could throw a rock over the ny state line and the pa state line lolz - there is a nice (used to be free) beach in milford that i used to take my kids to back in the day. they had a nice picnic area and everything. we used to go tubing - i believe they still offer that in matamoras where they drop you off and you float back to where your car is. also, canoeing is so fun if that's something you like. i will be going up there next month to nj (sparta and oak ridge) to stay with my 'homies' but usually take a ride up through there just for giggles.
anyways, you are in luck! google mama's baci cafe in hackettstown - the food is FABULOUS the people are awesome and all their servers/cooks, etc are trained and certified (they take a course at the hackettstown hospital) they have probably the biggest gluten free menu i have ever seen in that area and they can also accommodate other allergies like dairy i'm pretty sure. when i go up there (or when anyone visits me down here) a visit to mama's is a must!! their cheesesteaks are primo, and they also sell jars of sauce, pasta, etc if you wanted a lazy night dinner out of a jar. and they also have pizza
