There are so many hidden treasures in the Crafton/Greentree area!
Hanlon’s Cafe in the Crafton Ingram plaza offers a large selection of delicious diner food at affordable prices. My favorite item is their grilled veggie salad with grilled chicken topped with ranch. I’m also a big fan of their pancakes, burgers, and any of their selections with gravy. They are open seven days a week starting at 7 AM and open through dinner time on weekdays. Indoor seating and takeout are both available. Click here to check out their extended menu!
Crafton Shoe Services
Since you’re heading to the Crafton-Ingram Plaza for lunch, bring that pair of shoes or boots that need repaired to Crafton Shoe Services. My favorite pair of boots are from a local thrift store and I was heartbroken when their soles wore out. They were able to quickly repair my boots and they were as good as new! Crafton Shoe Services also sells a variety of shoelaces and polishes, repairs handbags and other bags, and fixes broken zippers. They’re open Monday-Saturday.
