Afterwords Cafe
Ranked #4 of 10 Restaurants in Chautauqua
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 August 2018

Afterwords Cafe is located above the bookstore in Chautauqua Institution. This is a place where everybody comes after the 10:45am lecture and after the 2:00pm lecture--should this be named Afterwards Cafe?! The sandwiches and pastries are delicious. What about breakfast you say?!! Well, I get up late so that's for you to try and review;)

Afterwords probably refers to the popularity of this cafe among the after-lecture crowd at Chautauqua. It's a wonderful place to people watch and grab a sandwich, salad--or before the lecture, an omelet or breakfast treats. And on hot days, who can resist its air conditioning. Alert: the prices are high to pay for that utility.

The sandwiches and salads at Afterwords are not bad, but they’re certainly not worth the prices. You’re clearly paying for the convenience of eating at a restaurant on Bestor Plaza. Expect to pay $20 for a sandwich and cup of soup.

We were visiting the Chautauqua Institution and were late for we breakfast but were able to get coffee and bagels , pastry and fruit cup. The coffee was great and the pastry fine. The personnel was very new as the season had not opened yet but tried to be accommodating as they were just getting their feet wet.

I largely enjoy eating at the Afterwords Cafe. The atmosphere is very nice and the staff is usually very friendly. I highly recommend their salads with housemade dressing options and their daily fresh soups. The baked goods and breads are nice as well. The only reason I can't give more than three stars is because the rating really depends on what you order. I had quiche on my last visit, and it seems like they pre-make the quiches and heat up a slice when you order. This would be fine, but some part of that process makes the consistency of the quiche awful. It tasted nice, but the crust was gummy and the egg filling was very runny and squishy. I also have had several sandwiches here that were lacking in flavor. However, Afterwords is certainly one of the better options on the grounds.
