We stopped for lunch and we're delighted with the Huge menu. Brenda was a lightning fast server who did not rush us but was most helpful. They had breakfast all day and several pages of lunch ideas. My marinated portobello mushroom sandwich on a ciabatta roll was a pleasant treat. We also got to see the knitting group in the... More

Good food, service was good as well. Had the homemade sausage, biscuits and gravy and it was delicious. Have eaten here quite a few times and its a warm, friendly atmosphere.

The setting is that it is in the great village of Cazenovia. The place is very comfortable. Get a coffee, a meal, a snack, whatever and hang out in the front lounge and relax, read the paper and enjoy why you'd go to Cazenovia to begin with. Help is very friendly and helpful, and no one is in a hurry... More

I had a small wrap with chips and it was good, great dressing. The sweet potato fries were nice also, but $5.99 for a small basket was a bit pricey. Nice little cafe.

It is a very family friendly atmosphere which is frequented by locals. They... More

As out of towners we were unsure where to have a decent meal. Boy we were happy with our choice. I love an open kitchen as you can see the food being prepared, the cleanliness of the kitchen and habits of the cook/waitstaff. Dave's passed muster on all accounts. The menu is varied with breakfast served all day. They close... More

My husband and I come here frequently for breakfast and the Cafe Kubal coffee. It's the best breakfast place in the area and worth the 25 minute drive it takes us. We always get the coffee from cafe kubal and have tried many of the breakfast items. Wonderful omelets, French toast, waffles, pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, and other items too. We... More

Some may call it relaxed eating. I call it slow. After sitting at our table for about 15 minutes, I managed to wave and get the attention of a waitress who had been standing and visiting with three other waitresses. She came to the table and we said we would like to order. She said she would get our server.... More

Good Food that is reasonably priced. Right in the heart of Albany (Main) Street you'll find friendly people to chat with that will be glad to tell you what the town has to offer.
