Visited the cafe today for their delicious lamb burger..I never eat the bun with a burger but this was a delicious exception. .The lamb was juicy and cooked perfectly. 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

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

We had visited Americana earlier in the day for a wine tasting. We learned that from 6-8 one can sit in the pavilion or the surrounding lawn and have dinner while listening to a musical group. Just a lovely setting a good way to spend a couple of hours.

While planning a day trip down the western side of Cayuga Lake, I looked up restaurants that we could visit for lunch. Based on reviews, we decided to stop at Crystal Lake Cafe without remembering that we had visited Americana Vineyards previously and did not care at all for their wines. (Disclaimer: we don't like most New York wines. Beer... More

We stopped here for a wine tasting on a very rainy afternoon. Great winery with live entertainment. It was very busy but the staff were great. We ended up having appetizers and dinner on the covered patio. Very relaxing way to spend the day.

I've loved Americana wines for several years & visit the winery often, but never had the chance to try out the cafe until recently. It was a beautiful day, so we sat outside & everything was very nice. I had one of the specials, a flank steak served over macaroni & cheese, & it was wonderful. My husband had the... More

We drive from Rochester, NY to Ithaca, NY at least once every summer along the shore of Cayuga Lake (Rte 89). While there is wonderful ice cream (Cayuga Creamery) along the route, we'd never found a really great restaurant worth stopping at. Crystal Lake Café changed that! It's just a mile up the road from Rte 89 and well worth... More
