Great grocery store! The café is basic and really not all that special. I do say if you want a quick coffee or sub and shop, it is fine.

A grocery store is not a place I normally would dine at when traveling. But--after a long day, I just wanted something quick and easy to take back to my room. I had one of the homemade soups and a build-your-own salad--and it hit the spot. Fresh ingredients that tasted great!

Most of the Wegman's Market Cafes in the Rochester area are larger, but size isnt everything. The prepared food varies a little from store to store. This particular one has excellent auThentic thin crust NYC style pizza, several flavors every day, reasonably priced. And of course a good variety of sushi, sandwiches, soupd, asian food, salad bar, chicken wings, and... More

We went there for lunch while in town on business. It should be listed as an "attraction" on Tripadvisor- the selection is truly world-class. Everything from Sushi to subs - too much to list. Also, lots of pre-packaged stuff (all still very fresh) if you're in a hurry, and lots made to order. Reasonable prices too. Ideal for a quick... More

Wegmans is by far the best grocery store around. I've been to several food stores and they cannot compete with Wegmans for cleanliness, variety, and customer service.

There is a pretty broad selection, but the prices are higher than most grocery store cafes. Not real cheery, as the inside of the store is dark, with the same dark brown coloring as the outside of the store. Regarding pricing...for a snack this might work, but a meal here can be much more than a sit down 3 star... More

Great place with just about anything you need. Food is great, appealing and well prepared. I would not think of going to Rochester without a visit. Other Wegmans stores do a great job as well as this one.
