If we travel back to Rochester, NY, we will surely return to this small, cozy, excellent restaurant in a quiet area of the city. We both thoroughly enjoyed scallop dinners with my wife's prepared gluten free! Although we ate there during the Lilac Festival at...More

Went here while visiting with old friends this weekend. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. We could talk and hear one another and the background music was pretty perfect. The menu is diverse enough for anyone on any kind of diet to find something great. The service...More

Really good food and atmosphere. Good selection of drinks. A good spot for a brunch in Rochester, in a good location close to downtown.

I have gone here twice in the past two months and enjoyed it. It is a cute place with good food. They offer options for people who are vegan, so this would also be an enjoyable place for those people. The potatoes are really good!...More

The fettuccine alfredo was really delicious. It was more like a pasta primavera with a variety of veggies and vegan parmesan (which was surprisingly good). This was my first visit, but I will be back. It's close to GEVA so makes a perfect location to...More

Brunch is usually good. I've had a few iffy menu specials I didnt like so much. Staff is lovely, and I think the steak for dinner is my favorite in Rochester so I'm always going back for it.

They definitely qualify on the vegan-friendly scale, and the quality of the food is spot on. It is my first choice for a plant-based breakfast in Rochester. If they rearrange the furniture they could probably handle 30... More
