Hidden Treasures: Murph’s of Morrisville, Pennsylvania

Murph’s of Morrisville is located (unsurprisingly) in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, and serves a wide variety of staple and specialty sandwiches for breakfast and lunch.

If you’re unfamiliar with Morrisville then you’re no doubt unaware that it’s full of delightful places to eat. Directly across the Delaware River from Trenton, New Jersey, Morrisville is a frequent lunch destination, and while it has a wealth of local eateries serving sandwiches (several of which are quite exceptional) Murph’s has some stand-out menu selections that make it worth special note.

When examining the menu, make sure to pay extra attention to the roast beef and roast pork sandwiches. The intense flavor resulting from Murph’s treatment of their meats makes even seemingly simple signature sandwiches like their “Roast Pork Italiano” burst with flavor. If you’re looking for breakfast, try the salami or Italian sausage and egg sandwiches, as they are among the most unique options on the menu.

Located in a shopping center at 1 East Trenton Avenue (Store 3A, near the rear of the shopping center), Murph’s is just down the road from Route 1, making it easy for anyone to find, even those stopping along their way to another destination. Definitely a hidden gem, Murph’s of Morrisville is worth driving a few extra blocks for a lot of added flavor.
