Let’s Do Lunch: BackBurner Café & Catering Company

Neighborhood Eatery in Dunmore Serves Up Classic Comfort Food

BackBurner Café & Catering Company has been dishing delicious eats since 2015. We recently visited their bright and lively, family-owned restaurant in Dunmore.

The BackBurner boasts a versatile menu which can satisfy any one of your cravings. The popular stop features menu selections for all-day breakfast, their “Specialty Sammies,” flatbread pizzas, and more. Local favorites include the Chicken Cordon Bleu, BYOburger, and specialty soups.

We tried their Buffalo Bill Sub, with a chicken cutlet, homemade hot sauce, cooper, and double-crumble bleu cheese. Yes, it was as delicious as it sounds. We also tried their homemade Mac and Cheese, which definitely hit the spot.

The BackBurner is the perfect place for an afternoon snack, or lunch with a friend. The cozy, inviting decor features a wall of coloring book pages fit for grandma’s fridge. The cool artwork and vines on the ceiling create a quirky, yet fun atmosphere. Even if you’ve never been, you’ll feel like a regular.

Make sure to stop by for Taco Tuesdays, as well as their ten-dollar specialty dinners. Gather the family for a culinary Tour of Italy or a classic Turkey Dinner.

The BackBurner Café is open for lunch Mondays through Fridays, 11:00 – 3:00. They also provide catering services for a variety of events.

Now that restaurants are back open, we have a lot of lunch dates to make up. In this series, we’re visiting cafés, sandwich shops and more across NEPA and giving you an inside look at what they have to offer. Take your lunch break with us and show your support for our local restaurants.
