The restaurant isn't very large but it makes up for square footage in great customer service, high quality/interesting menu options and a nice location. Sometimes you may have to wait if you come for breakfast or brunch but hang it there, it's worth it. They try and seat you as quickly as possible and turn over the tables immediately. The... More

On Thursday 10th 2015 a very good friend of mine wanted to take me out for lunch but was looking for a place that served eggs. After stopping at another place to eat we decided to try something else that was also close. I suggested that we try the frog pond out seeing that I've heard good things about the... More

If you want freshly prepared tasty food with good service, this is a good option. The food preparation my take a while, but it's worth the wait. I've been here several time and I've always enjoyed the ambience and food quality.

This has to be the worst place to eat in Rochester. Not only was our food cold and unappealing but we had this little Asian waiter who wouldnt shut up the whole time we were eating. Even after we asked hin to leave our table he continued rambling on and on. We will never return here again and its sad... More

Not what I expected from a restaurant with the ratings online. The food was average. the service was VERY slow. I was there for lunch on August 17. There was only about 3 tables with diners and we waited about 40 minutes for our food. I had to ask the server when was our food coming. We had a 4... More

The staff is good and friendly. The food is pretty good. Nice casual restaurant. Ok with kids. A better selection of beers on tap would be great though...

On Park Ave in a trendy neighborhood, this diner has been around forever. I hadn't been there in 40 years, but the service, cuisine and popularity spoke volumes. It serves breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Nice little cafe in kinda a trendy area of Rochester (if there is such a thing). We chose to sit outside. Service was not brisk but within reason. I had the two eggs with toast with the links. The links were very tasty. Eggs were done to order and the rye toast was fine. We had a side of home... More
