I've often stopped in to Starry Nites (despite the misspelling of their name) for a breakfast sandwich (on Rochester's best bagels: Brownstein's) or soup, a salad, or a wrap on occasion. The other day, I was there for brunch (not having had breakfast and not having time for lunch), so I ordered my... read more

A classic coffeehouse, with lovely tables outside and yummy nibbles to go with the selection of coffees and teas.

Heard about this place from a few people so decided to stop in last night. It was a Friday night & they had a band playing. Cool place to hang out, get a cup of coffee & listen to the band. It was around 9 pm & packed. Surprisingly with a lot of families. So many children there that there... More

Stopped for a Smoothie while Geocaching around Rochester. A lil busy but worth the wait. Lots of people sitting outside and ordering food as well as drinks. Everything looked good and people seem pleased to be here.

I love Starry Nites Cafe! It's cozy and the employees are friendly. Great coffee (Finger Lakes Roasters) and tea. They sell beer and wine too! Gluten free cupcakes rock!! Interesting local art work displayed on the walls along with a big mural of Van Gogh's Starry Night. In the nicer months they have a great patio to sit at and... More

This place could be awesome. They have arguably the coolest space in Rochester, right at the tip of the Flatiron building in the Neighborhood of the Arts with great outdoor seating, exposed brick and huge windows. Where they fail is with their coffee and food, often snotty service, and obnoxious signs that say if you arent buying something and using... More

First, we were just going to get a cold drink. We enjoyed sitting on the stools by the window. Then we ended up taking home sandwiches for supper. All the ingredients were fresh and quite tasty.

My husband and I stopped here on one of our afternoons out. I love the location and artsy ambiance. It would be a great place to go with friends or by yourself with a book. I had a cup of Polish Farmhouse Soup and a side salad. The soup tasted very European which was great. The salad was good too.... More

Rochester in December is cold. Starry Nites is really comfortable place to get a cup of coffee and slow down with friends. Starry Nights is in an Architecturally significant build in the middle of Rochester's NOTA "neighborhood of the arts".
