Recommend a visit - nice to have a local owned place and not just a chain that cares less about local clientele. Always friendly people serving you

Emma's is conveniently located on Route 117 in beautiful apple orchard country. Whether you are visiting one of Stow's many local apple orchards, playing golf or just driving through, Emma's is a local, friendly, warm and wonderfully delicious breakfast and lunch spot. Any of the breakfast meals or smoothies are wonderful. For lunch, the New Orleans Po Boy is a... More

I come here quite frequently. Love their fresh baked breakfast goods. Service is always friendly. Would love to score it higher but the ambiance is mediocre at best, lunch sandwiches seem hit or miss (my recommendation: The New Orleans Po Boy is great! Or go with one of the salads prepared as a wrap), and you may have to wait... More

Love this place, which doesn't look like much - it fronts on a strip mall parking lot, next to a hardware store. But quite spacious inside and the owner (Andrew) takes good care of his customers. My favorite is The lox bagel sandwich (with chopped hardboiled eggs and red onions and capers). Also the oatmeal, if you like that sort... More

Took a friend from VA here for lunh the other day after we were done playing golf nearby. I picked Emma's based solely on the Trip Advisor rating since I'd never dined in Stow. The staff was friendly and fast but the decor was odd and unfortunately our sandwiches were just awful. The bread that was used for our panini's... More

Great local business with delicious options for breakfast. Great service & coffee. They are also selling locally made maple syrup, if interested.

This is the 2nd visit. So far have tried a couple of their lunch sandwich offerings. You can watch your food be prepared since kitchen prep is right out in the open. The sandwiches are made with fresh ingredients to add flavor. Well, with a local gym right next store comfort includes living room couches, TV as well as tables... More

Perfect any time off day. The smoothies alone make for a great meal replacement if on the run. Breakfast is amazing. Never disappointed.

Lots of good sandwich and breakfast items. The decor needs a bit of jazzing up (color and comfort), but the owners are friendly and very nice to chat with.
