This was the first I had been here in 9 years after a terrible incident with the previous owners and staff. I was glad I broke down to give the new owners a chance. Our waitress, Laura, was pleasant and kept our coffee cups filled....More

Love this place for a good breakfast. Don't miss their giant Cinnamon buns (best buns in town as their shirts say) but their other breakfast offerings are good as well.

Just returned from a fantastic first time experience at Bemus Point Inn. Went because of the great reviews, expectations were high ... expectations were exceeded!

Stopped at 9:30 for a late breakfast. The place was packed, always a great sign. Upon entering we discovered the place was really hopping! We found an unoccupied table, sat down and were immediately greeted by a very cheerful waitress. Menus delivered, drink order taken....More

If you want to meet the locals, the fishermen, the summer homeowners, etc. this is the spot. Great "diner" food that can't be beaten. They have cinnamon rolls that are epic - big as a baby's head! Breakfast is best in a casual, no rush...More
