Nice casual restaurant

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...

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

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

A great place for brunch. The food is very good and the atmosphere is casual and it is located in a great little neighbor.

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

Long-time former Rochester residents (now friends of mine in Maryland), highly recommended The Frog Pond as our first breakfast on a recent "friends trip" to the area. I was immediately impressed with the number of omelette options on the menu and the quaint, friendly atmosphere. There is a limited amount of outdoor seating just outside the front of the restaurant... More

Have only been here for brunch on the weekends, but it's good, solid, comfort food-plus, reasonably priced, good if busy staff, and they manage to squeeze a lot of people into a very small space and make it seem efficient. Our kids enjoy it here, as well. Typicaly brunch fare.

This is not the place to go if you are in a hurry. We hit it before the crowds hit (it filled up about 20 minutes after we arrived for breakfast) and still it was a good 40 minutes before our food came. Fortunately, we we visiting with our son and his girlfriend so we enjoyed the extra time. The... More
