Great breakfast

Went the other day for their signature fritatta. This was a fantastic dish and cooked to perfection. It had a perfect amount of italian sausage and came to the table piping hot. The wait staff was very attentive and kept the coffee cups full and warm. Nice job..

Your first impression upon walking into The Frog Pond is how small it is. With a restaurant this small, you expect to wait. The only problem is, there is no room TO wait. I felt like we were standing on top of poor people trying to enjoy their breakfasts. Upon being seated, we were greeted by multiple members of the... More

Every part of the meal was great but the wait... I had lox Benedict which was perfect. My daughter who has celiac disease shared two omelets with her sister. One also had lox and capers and cream cheese this they loved. The other with artichokes was just ok. Others in our group were less adventurous but all the food was... More

The waffle was loaded with blueberries, which mt husband enjoyed. The tofu scramble was a bit bland..could use more color and taste. very friendly staff.

Youd think that Brunch on Saturday AM these guys would know what they are doing! Very unorganized, not sure where to seat people, not sure who is the hostess versus waitress vs busboy. Asked 3 times for menus, had to go inside to actually order etc etc etc. Menu looked GREAT but all the food we ordered was very average.... More

Breakfast is one meal, that as a full service restaurant should be better than something you can get from your local Tim Hortons. This place failed to empress me. It is obvious that zero dollars of the profit are ever put back into this establishment. Shaky tables, beat up chairs and booths hardly feel clean. The prices are far too... More

Visited the Frog Pond on a Saturday with three kids and 4 adults. Had a short wait, that staff were very friendly and service was great even though they were very busy. The food was very good across the board from egg dishes to pancakes and chicken strips. The specialty banana pancakes were just amazing, although very rich and sweet... More

Great place for breakfast. Both the service and food were wonderful and the outdoor dining was exciting to see. People from all over and all walks of life seem to gravitate to this spot. Makes you feel like you are on vacation even if your not. Fun local spot on Park Ave. in Rochester, NY.

We went for breakfast with family and friends. They were super kind about setting up a table for 7, and the service was excellent. The waitstaff cooperated on keeping everyone's coffee cups filled, and they were never empty or cold! They happily let one of our party order from the lunch menu. (French onion soup for breakfast! Delicious!) I had... More
