“Panini and Gelato!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

After touring the Eastman House we stopped for a light lunch. Several interesting entries. We decided to split a turkey panini in order to indulge in some gelato. We were delighted that the panini was served on separate plates and we each got to sample the sides without being awkward about it--such nice and friendly service! The gelato was heavenly! We didn't split that--we each selected 3 different yummy scoops! Highly recommended!

“Afternoon tea”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

I was on a trip to the George Eastman house. an elderly woman (90 years Young) was having trouble with her legs so I sat with her and had tea. There are desserts and other drinks. People were sitting around and seem to be enjoying themselves. There were real flowers in teacups on the tables as centerpieces. The gift shop is right there so I left her to browse and find my souvenirs. The staff were very friendly.

“Great Gelato!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

I visited this cafe several times recently. It serves a nice sandwich with not just a gluten free bread but a choice of GF breads! The gelatos are delicious and theres a few tasty cakes and cookies too. All this plus good wifi and the Eastman shop to browse in.

“Gluten Free”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I really like this cafe. its worth a visit even if youre not going to the house.

I have been several times now and really enjoy their very reasonably priced sandwiches. They actually have a variety of decent gluten free breads which is unusual. They also have delicious gelato and a selection of cakes.

Dont miss the attached shop which has some novel gift ideas.
