“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We were traveling from several days vacation in Vermont with friends and found this little restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was a pleasant surprise.
The people were very friendly and Sharon - one of the owners- was delightful to talk to. The place is very clean and it is obvious that they care deeply about their customers and making a difference in their community.
We had the homemade quiche and it was delicious.
Will definitely tell our friends and be sure to stop back in the future when traveling in this area.

“A Gem in Menands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We are regular customers of the Other Company. It's simple -- really good food, made with quality ingredients, served in a clean, homestyle, friendly atmosphere. Oh, did I mention that the prices are more than reasonable!
Why go to a chain restaurant when you can go to neighborhood place and be absolutely assured that you are eating quality food?

Sharon and Ellen -- thanks for hanging in there and being part of our community!!

“Great place for breakfast !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile


I met a friend at The Other Company Restaurant for breakfast last week and, never having been here, was very plesently surprised. The location is across from the offices and studios of Channel 13 - very much off the beaten path - but seems to attract folks from outside the 'hood. While the atmosphere is plain, perhaps even a little tired looking, the menu has everything you might want - with great homemade selections. Our omelets were terrific and prepared exactly as requested. The waitress had obviously been there forever and was very friendly. I returned several days later with a work associate and was equally impressed with the lunch selections. Great food and service. Moderately priced. I'll be back.
