I've gone to Mooseberry a number of times, and have yet to be disappointed. The food is great, and the environment very vibrant and "alive". Outside of organic food and soaps, Mooseberry also offers a range of locally-produced products and even hosts a farmer's market once a week on Saturday mornings along with various special events. Reading the two negative reviews on this page, I'd say it has a lot to do with the fact that the cook was also the waitress, which results in things becoming a bit overwhelming at times. However, they have addressed this since, and I have personally never had an issue with the service... so, I highly recommend checking it out for yourself, as it's a very unique place that you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere let alone in Rochester.

Online it sounds like this awesome place that sells delicious bakery goods and craft goods. It is nothing of the sort. They do sell soap and bath salts. I felt like I was in the twilight zone. Unbelievable, waitress comes back FIVE times with "oh sorry we don't have..." After an hour of waiting, she forgets to put my order in. After being totally understanding of the waitress that sometimes mistakes happen, the waitress lets us wait a half hour for our check and ten minutes at the register with no apologies. And it was not like it was busy, there was four people in the place. Two hours wasted with the worst breakfast food ever.

Well, thinking this would be a cute cafe from it's web site it was everything but. The dishes were chipped. The tea bag was half filled. Not enough to make a good cup of tea. My friend ordered something to eat but it never arrived, even asking for it several times. Don't waste your time here, it's not worth it.
