Nice tasty lunch with friendly staff. My husband had the grilled cheese sandwich and clam chowder. I had a delicious salad. Purchased some fine wine too.

Food is the best in the finger lakes by far and in my opinion the best in NY State. The flavors and preparation are impeccable and you can tell there is passion and love behind each dish. Do yourself a favor and cap off your meal with an equally delicious dessert. Again, I cannot recommend this place enough and you... More

We stopped at Americana Crystal Lake Cafe because of a recommendation that I received from a local. We saw an ad on a map that said they were open seven days a week but the website said they were closed on Tuesdays. We waited until Wednesday and it was worth the wait. We sat outside and we asked the waitress... More

We stopped at the Americana Vineyards for a wine tasting tour and decided to have lunch at this nice little cafe. We were not disappointed. Service was a little slow, but you then you don't go to a vineyard cafe when you're in a hurry. You go there to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The food was excellent and well... More

Part of Americana Vineyard, the cafe was a perfect spot for lunch as we headed around Cayuga Lake. Good food and great views. Really enjoyed the daily special - a pimento cheese burger and sweet potato fries. Berry tort dessert was also excellent.

It's always a pleasure when I get a chance to eat at the Café. The food is always prepared well. It was my birthday this week and my only request was to visit Americana Winery and have lunch at the Café. We were able to take our beagle Sam with us for the day and he was welcomed by the... More

Delicious, fresh well prepared food. We're filled with regret that we couldn't have had more meals there and that they are only open for lunch. Don't miss it!

This winery attracts Finger Lake's visitors from all over the world, but when you dine at the cafe you are more likely than not to run into a neighbor. Besides the regular menu selections, there are often 4-6 specials available. My favorite Saturday afternoon meal is the Thai chicken wings and the chefs' Cuban sandwich, accompanied by a chilled bottle... More

I have eaten at the Cafe many times. I have usually been there on a week day with a group of colleagues for good food and lots of chat time. The decor is simple and wine country. You can sit outside under cover in suitable weather in a grassy country setting. It is relaxing to see the family dog(s) sunbathing... More
