Charming but very small. It is very popular and worth the wait for a table. Outdoor seating is available when the weather is good. I am partial to their frittata -- best in town! The spinach salad is also great. We've never been dissappointed.

I went here on Saturday for breakfast with a friend. To be very honest, being a native from NYC - I'm a bit biased when it comes to food, in general. Their food was pretty good though - I got the huevos rancheros, and the tortilla was slightly hard but not bad. My friend got the burrito which looked good.... More

Always consistently good, quality food. I have been a frequent patron for many years and have been remiss in sending a review. Ambiance is quaint and food is always freshly home made. Great breakfast choices - you must try their home fries as a side order. One thing to consider if you plan to dine on weekend mornings....get there early... More

6 of us as a work group ate at The Frog Pond on the 30th of September. The orders were omlettes, a veggie burger, fish sandwich, NE clam chowder. The food is homemade, fresh and of high quality. Our server was quick and very attentive. Be forwarned their cash register can only accomodate 4 seperate checks from a table.

Always enjoy breakfast here! Food and service always good, they get pretty busy and it's a small place so fills up quick at peak hours. My only complaint is their orange juice is overpriced.

My wife and granddaughter and I were visiting Rochester when we decided to go to the Frog Pond for Breakfast. We arrived at just the right time, because we were seated right away. The crowd soon followed and the wait was long. We ordered right away but it took a very long time to receive our food. When the food... More

Went with my nephew for breakfast on a Saturday morning and were seated right away. I shared a bite of my banana pancake with him and the next morning we had to go back so he could have it himself. I tried the cream cheese stuffed cinnamon French toast and am pretty sure I saw heaven! We had to wait... More

My husband and I visited for breakfast nearly 35 years after our first date at the Frog Pond and we were not disappointed. The décor has been updated, but the cozy, funky atmosphere in Park Ave area has not changed one bit. I had to have the famous Frog Pond frittata, and it was as good and fresh as ever.... More

I can never stop raving about the Frog Pond! It's the best breakfast menu on Park Ave! The only down side? The small venue. It has a pretty quick turn over, and quick service but if you go in on Sunday morning, expect to wait a little while. They have the best of everything they have excellent eggs Benedict, and... More

The food is good but they are very popular and the place is relatively small so that means long waits during prim times. I never feel rushed and enjoy what we order. Would I recommend? Yes but get their early.
