A retro decorated small restaurant with menus on chalk board and regular handy menu. Excellent cappuccino and chai latte. Tasty turkey and tomato sandwich. Pizza with thin crust looked a little dry. Beet, goat cheese and greens salad, was tasty, however, I thought the beets could have been cooked a little longer, were quite crunchy, but good dressing? Excellent baked... More

Having enjoyed Opus in the past, we looked forward to returning for a late breakfast after an appointment in Geneva. As usual, the food was good, but poor service made for an unhappy visit. The restaurant was not busy, and there was only one couple ahead of us to order. The person taking the order was having difficulty with the... More

Hi Harvey I am beyond sorry of your experience. There is no excuse for this service--although I do have two new employees in the front since my partner who is usually there every day went into the hospital on Thursday...so I have been doing the best I could with training and running kitchen. I am aware of this problem and... More

Always worth the trip. Whether for a quick hot drink or a delicious breakfast sandwich or lucnch. Cozy meeting spot for friends or comfortable arrangements for stopping in alone. Always fresh selections made to order. Friendly staff and locally owned. A great spot to hit.

I tend to go to Opus about once or twice a year. And every time I sort of forgotten why I don't go more often. And then, when I receive my drink, I'm reminded why. The coffee is almost always being made by some young person who must not actually drink the stuff. It's underwhelming in terms of flavor. The... More

We stop here for lunch on the way to Ithaca and Cornell University. Creative and tasty assortment of dishes including vegetarian selections. Interesting smoothies and coffees. A tea-drinking member of our party endorses their teas, too. All in all a place we enjoy visiting. Others must, too, since we sat near a framed Trip Advisor award prominently displayed on their...

This place has everything you are looking for: delicious, fresh food with a creative menu; great coffee; baked goods, juices and smoothies! Also very comfortable booths where we hung out and worked for a while after circumnavigating the town and determining this had the best vibe and was the most comfy!

Great breakfast and coffees. Friendly staff. Quick service. Urban, updated and comfortable environment. We had a breakfast burrito (which is huge) and a breakfast sandwich. Both were very tasty. But that's the extent of cooked breakfast dishes. Also, scones, sweet breads, etc. are offered and look appealing. So much more of a coffee house than a diner experience. But we... More

Great lattes and wonderful eats make this a daily routine when visiting Geneva. All breakfast sandwiches and burritos are cooked in a wood fired oven. Delicious! Warm atmosphere and friendly service help make this place a very comfortable morning or lunch destination.
