What a fun place for brunch!

My two friends and I decided to try brunch at the Owl House. We already really enjoyed it for dinner for all their delicious vegetarian, vegan, and locally grown dishes. Brunch did not disappoint!

This quaint eatery offers a wonderful vegan menu, and a delightful selection of daily specials. We've been to this region on many occasions, and for the health conscious person, this is seemingly the best place! Yummy!

I had the Studley Dudley with a side of Breakfast Potatoes. Great on all fronts! Get there early for brunch as it seems to fill up quickly!

Friends has raved about the unique style of cooking and creative food here. We were disappointed when stopping for lunch one day. The decor is very drab and dark, almost like a dive bar in some ways. We were seating right next to the kitchen and it looked like it was not the cleanest one in the world, but appearances... More

Personally i really want to like the owl house a lot. But they're just missing the mark for me. Friendly staff for sure!! The food was even good. But for the price I paid, it wasn't worth it to go again. I was hungry within the hour. Plus drinks, while delicious, are pricey. Cauliflower wings are worth it though.

We loved the variety of food and the fact that a vegan, semi-vegetarian and a self-proclaimed carnivore could all get something satisfying and tasty to eat.

Dined here this past Sunday evening based on a recommendation from friends. I work as a Chef in Toronto and I have to say the Owl House is a delightful experience. The food is creative yet unpretentious -considering the price. The cocktails were also superb. There's something to be admired about its simplicity. Artwork on walls did however leave something...

Went to the Owl House based on the recommendation of our son (who accommodates a gluten free girlfriend). They raved. We frowned. Either the combinations were ordinary (burger- which was quite greasy) or Moosewood-1970's- odd (veggies with coconut water sauces??). Tried the shaved fennel with smoked portobellos; it was tasty, but wayyyyyy too much fennel for the very sparse (but... More

This is a unique place to eat in Rochester, if you're looking for vegan/vegetarian friendly food this is a must stop. I've only been for lunch and brunch and there is a variety in dishes, it seems like their menu is constantly changing. If you plan to go for brunch on the weekend I'd suggest calling ahead and making a... More

We were a party of 5 (3 Adults and 2 Teens) going out for dinner in Rochester. Restaurant is small in a house but don't let that fool you. We had to sit at the bar because the dining area was full but the bartender was friendly and engaged with us. Mostly vegetarian but there were choices for us meat... More
