Great lunch!

We've been to Europe and never had a panino nearly as good as the ones served here! Lunch prices are not on the low side but well worth the extra cash. There are plenty other alternatives to panini: salads, pastries, wraps, and soups are delicious.

We have eaten here twice (take out both times) but have attempted to eat here a few more times than that. They were unexpectedly closed for various reasons on two other occasions when we wanted to eat there. The first time we ate there was great. The second time was not so great. The food was basically ok (my husband... More

Teknoturtl, I assure you that we diligently follow ALL the health department and serve safe standards for the proper preparation, refrigeration/storage and sanitation procedures (including wearing hats or bandanas, food service gloves, etc...) when preparing all our food. I work very hard to make sure this doesn't happen as I completely understand that it is unacceptable. Please accept my sincere... More

Amazing hand made sandwiches make a nice departure from the typical "sub" you get at big chain sandwich places. Also a really nice selection of yummy baked goods. Definitely worth a visit!

I was looking for a local coffee shop and this place was recommended. At least they had some chai tea. I will try again in the future after calling to make sure there is an espresso machine.

Just to clarify.... we do have an espresso machine. However, this winter ours broke. I purchased a new, BIGGER and MUCH BETTER one with the plans of expanding our menu and speeding up the production process. It took a couple of weeks for the new one to arrive. Within the first week, it malfunctioned. The company promised me a new... More

Husband had come,here for a business meeting and couldn't wait to bring me. I'm glad he did. Reminded us of a little place in one of the favorite new england towns. We both got a pannini--although different ones. They were fantastic. Definitely on the favorite list.

I come here for lunch all the time. Their special of the day panini is often a good choice. I sometimes "create my own" panini even though it's not a direct menu option. Definitely recommend the garlic mayo on any panini. I wish the lobster bisque had actual pieces of lobster but it was still pretty good.

I've been visiting the Port City Cafe since its inception. I live in Oswego! It started as a bakery, and grew into a full-service eatery. For a quick meal, served often before you'd even get what we think of as 'fast food,' there no place better in town! I have dietary restrictions, and their staff goes to decent lengths (with...
