As a proud member of the Finger Lakes Culinary Bounty, we work everyday to create dishes made with fresh local products such as meats, cheeses, produce - even hand-crafted ice cream.Interesting, full-flavored American fare is our hallmark, from homemade salsa and sauces to soups and bread; house roasted turkey to hand packed burgers; cheese cake with Baco Noir ganache to Sweet Rosie Brownies.Established in 2007 Celebrating its 5th anniversary on May 7th of 2012, the Crystal Lake Cafe began in 2007 as a 50's-style roadside diner. Over its 5 years of existence, the cafe has become an outlet for local foods and a fun atmosphere. With the recent inclusion of Friday and Sunday concerts throughout the year, the Crystal Lake cafe has become a hotspot destination for locals and tourists alike.

If you are looking for a casual spot with high-end cooking, this is the place. Perfect for dinner at the end of a day on the wine trail. Desserts were amazing! Good wine and beer list.

This was the perfect choice for a late afternoon meal after a day of wine-tasting along Cayuga Lake. Our server was very personable and we were even visited by the resident cat. Decor is 50's diner style with cute red and white chairs. A little chilly whenever the outside door opened. Great butternut squash soup, broccoli/red onion pizza served over... More

Went there to see the chocolate labs, but didn't get to visit with them much. The food was very good as was the wine. Able to pick up some cheese and crackers along with wine to take back to our B&B on a rainy day. Nice place to visit when you are staying at the Black Walnut B&B since it... More

So I am one of those healthy eaters concentrating on local farm to table food, low fat and a salad kind of woman. When it comes to the Kim Chi Fries, I will cheat every time. Thanks for creating such a wonderful savory blast of flavor my mouth. The restaurant is wonderful too. I love the location, winery, music on... More

Large slab of fear and slice of red onion were perfection. Glass of baco noir and sweet potato fries..Yum. The desserts are always fresh and delicious too! Bring back the warm... More

For years we kept saying we were going to stop here for lunch or dinner but each time we arrived at Americana Winery it was time to eat. We made a point this time To spend our time there for lunch and really enjoyed the meal.

Great food and the property is beautiful. Service a little slow and had to ask/request a second glass of water and wine.

We visited the cafe here on two occassions and both times we enjoyed the food, fish one night and lamb another. It is more of a practical eatery than atmospheric, but nice all the same. The advantage of this cafe is that it is open until at least 8 so you can really fill your day and then come here... More
