“This is not a restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Wegman's is a wonderful supermarket - truly one of the best. However, the Market Cafe is not that great. The Chinese food is horrible and overpriced. The subs are a literal ripoff of DiBellas (who used to be in the grocery store until their contract ran out and then Wegman's just duplicated their secret - sneaky, eh?). The remainder of the offerings are good ... but remember this is not unlike the Walmart syndrome with a big block entity taking business away from small business and restaurant and deli owners. For what Wegman's gives you in convenience while shopping, it takes away from the surrounding community. It is better than a fast food chain (both in quality and ambience) but do not compare this to a restaurant. If you want coffee, go to a coffee house independently owned. If you want to eat, find a nice neighborhood independently owned restaurant. If your choice is between any of the chains and Wegman's - then Wegman's is the choice. If you are also buying groceries while there, don't buy Wegman's eggs - they come from chicken factories with horrendous conditions, Wegman's also should step up to the plate and label GMO food and dairy with antibiotics etc. in them. On the plus side - if you directly ask about additives in cheese, for instance, they will tell you and they are deserving of kudos for that.

“something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

wegmans is probably the finest in supermarkets anywhere. when people from out of town visit, they ask to see a wegmans. the choices are endless, and the cafe offers indian, chinese, paninis, italian, salads, soups, subs, hot and cold, pizza, and a host of other unusual offerings. fresh daily, and priced on the high side of reasonable for lunch. but very good. plenty on clean space to sit and enjoy, and wegmans staff are some of the best trained customer service folks anywhere, and i mean anywhere.

“Cafe closes too early”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I love wegman's and always go whenever I'm upstate, but was disappointed last night when i went there to get dinner at 8pm and their hot and cold food buffets were already closed and there was not much selection of prepared foods to go. What's the point of a buffet if it's going to close before 8?

“The grocery store in the country!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Wegmans is the best grocery store in the country! It has the best selection of fruit and vegetables that you could possibly want. Fresh baked bread daily. Fabulous cooked foods and very affordable $6 dollar meals are well worth the money. Excellent organization!
