Best breakfast food in Cazenovia. Owners are hands on. Love the banter that goes on between owners and regulars. Yes, they have some "rules" (make sure you close the door behind you, etc.) but that is part of the homey charm. Real maple syrup. FYI, booths cannot seat more than four; cash only, no cards.

We've been a number of times. Not very friendly. Food is so so. You can do better locally. This place has so much potential. Owners refuse to excel.

Family owned and operated, breakfast is fast, delicious and served hot. Lunch is best on Friday when they have the home made clam chowder, the best I have ever eaten.

Emma's offers a typical breakfast and lunch items. Pancakes are always a good choice. The hours are very limited. Since space is limited, they cannot accommodate large groups.

My mother-in-law, wife and I stopped in to Emma's for a coffee and a muffin or something (while waiting for another party to meet us in Cazenovia). Here's our series of first impressions... 1. All booths full, so I headed to the counter while mom-in-law and wife headed to the restroom. 2. The waitress (Emma?) called to my ladies "Excuse... More

Truly a diner that shouldn't be in business. Owners are always rude, with no provocation. It's also really dirty. True definition of greasy spoon. Food is ok but, the atmosphere isn't. Happy Dave's Diner came to Caz, clean, great food and more often than not, a happy person waiting on you :)

If you have a large party, they make it clear from the moment you walk in that they will not make any effort to accommodate you.
