In-store dining, cafeteria-style, with stations serving Chinese, regional, Indian, barbecue, and other delicacies weighed by the ounce. Pizza slices are very good. However, the better bet is the newly re-constituted (third time in five years) Burger Bar, adjacent. Emphasis at the BB is on designer hamburgers (hence, the name), wine by the glass, and frozen custard, a Rochester-area specialty. Ambiance... More

I go to Wegmans every time I go back home. This time I was disappointed. I think they are trying to be healthier which means my favorites were gone. Usually, I can fill up a container easily, this time I couldn't find a lot to like. Also, the palak paneer in the Indian section was watery.

Part of the Rochester Experience is Wegman's...its not just a grocery store. They have a buffet with service that offers just about anything you could want. The food is very very good. Then, just a short walk or elevator ride to the upstairs dining area which has service amenities and nearby restrooms. The only caution is to be aware that... More

I stopped in to Wegmans on Monroe Avenue for lunch about a month ago, and was quickly reminded just how fabulous this "supermarket" café can be. As much as people rave about Wegmans (and most people do), the Pittsford store is at the top of the heap. The area from which you make your lunch (or dinner) selections is HUGE,... More

Having lived everywhere, there are only a few things I miss about Rochester, frozen custard, garbage plates and WEGMANS!!! The grocery store has everything from around the world, fresh produce and meat and amazing prepared foods. The fact that you can bring the whole family to the grocery store and get food from a 4-5 star restaurant of all different... More

A few Rochesterians told us to have lunch there so we did. And it was fine. But average. Nothing more.

I enjoyed the food and coffee. It was convenient at Wegmans and the value was a bonus. When I often go to Wegmans, I stop by the Cafe.

The cafe is great for casual dining...but you can get a great glass of wine too! Everything is fresh, cooked to order and their specials are great. I often dine alone and I love it.

Wegman's continues to offer the best! I could not imagine life without this store. I love the veggie burger. It is healthy with grains and vegetables. It is so nice to sit down and eat in relaxed atmosphere before shopping.

The food bar has plenty of varity, everything from organic salad bar to sushi and fried chicken. Can't find something, just ask! The whole staff is friendly and attentive. You also see them testing everything so you know it's fresh and the right temp. Wish I lived closer to eat lunch here everyday.
