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.

Frog Pond is tiny and charming and therefore packed on weekends. I brought a young friend early afternoon on a crowded Sunday. After being told a lengthy wait, the hostess them grabbed us and sat us immediately. You're in the laps of your neighbors but service is great, food comes quickly, tastes great and probably one of the best values... More

I went here this morning with my wife and father and it was excellent! We've wanted to try it for awhile now and it certainly lived up the all the hype! Atmosphere is really charming. It's tiny so even on a slow day it feels full. Service was friendly, helpful and fast. My father and I both got omelets (I... More

I was taken here for my birthday as a special morning out for breakfast by my family. Overall the food was mediocre and nothing special to write home about. The restaurant is located in a busy neighborhood on Park Avenue IN Rochester,NY. This morning was no different and the place was packed on this unusually brisk Sunday April Morning. There... More

I always order simple breakfasts - I had eggs, bacon and oatmeal. The food was great, but the overall dining experience was even better. Our waitor was really on top of his game and the proprietor who was present greeted us as we came and before we left
