Over its 5 years of existence, the cafe has become an outlet for local foods and a fun atmosphere. With the recent inclusion of Friday and Sunday concerts throughout the year, the Crystal Lake cafe has become a hotspot destination for locals and tourists alike.

Just had a relaxed and delicious Sunday brunch at Crystal Lake Café. As others have noted, simple décor and great food, cooked carefully and presented really well. Straightforward brunch menu with creative specials. Outstanding value for the price range. Friendly and attentive service, with wine tastings next door while you wait for a table. Good cup of coffee. Resident dogs, cool but not too cool to be petted, add to the atmosphere.

The Crystal Lake Cafe at Americana Winery is a hidden gem. The atmosphere is very relaxed & not fancy at all, but the food is outstanding! My favorite entre is the lamb burger served with feta cheese & rosemary aioli.It melts in your mouth! There are many delicious vegetarian entres, too, like the veggie quesadillas. Yummy hand cut fries, especially the sweet potato fries. And we always order a bottle of Americana Cabernet Franc to accompany our meal. A very enjoyable dinner or lunch at a very reasonable price. (Check the days & hours that Crystal Lake is open during the winter, because its different from their summer hours.) Outside seating is an option during the summer.

Great atmosphere when the band plays. We would never have missed this evening for the world. We were there at night and the sight was still breathtaking.

When ever in the area we never miss the opportunity to dine at the Cafe. The squash soup and fish sandwich with the freshly made fries were outstanding. The customer service at both the cafe and winery are 5 star. With the focus on local cuisine it truly is a Finger Lakes experience!

Just returned from another visit - although more than 40 miles from where I live, I make the journey very frequently: Beautiful place, fabulous really well priced food, friendly people - and then there is the wonderful restored barn where wine tastings are held and wine sold.

Today, had the mussels in Dry Riesling, citric sauce. Can' get myself to try other appetizing items as I so love this dish. And, to top it off, Blueberry-Sapphire Almond Tart with vanilla ice cream.
