Description: Originally known as Phoebe's Garden Cafe, the restaurant has a long and colorful history in Syracuse. Local lore claims that the building was originally a brothel, and Phoebe was its madam. The tin ceiling above the bar is original to the building and the name still honors Phoebe, but much has changed since those early days. William Eberhardt opened Phoebe's Garden Cafe in December of 1976 with a bistro style menu and an ornately carved wood bar.The atmosphere was rich with red brick walls, and deep green upholstery, all surrounded by lush green plants. The large atrium dining room was added in 1985, increasing seating and opening up the entire restaurant with a sunny new skylight. In the summer of 2004, Phoebe's experienced a refreshing makeover with a bright new look in the atrium dining room with fresh paint, new upholstery, and artwork. The bar and cafe areas were softened with cool linen window treatments and warm shades of burgundy and cream.The coffee lounge also opened that year, and it became an instant hit with the surrounding university and business crowd. Those changes also warranted a new name to reflect the updated attitude and ambiance: Phoebe's Restaurant and Coffee Lounge. Classic elements of Phoebe's remain untouched-the French onion soup and enticing creme brulee. The lunch and dinner menu changes seasonally and includes many locally-sourced ingredients. Looking for more of a quick bite on the go? The Coffee Lounge serves as a take-out window for breakfast sandwiches, lunch, and dinner, in addition to all of the made-to-order coffee and espresso drinks. The Lounge also has its own seating area and free wireless internet capabilities. Phoebe's old world charm is right at home in a revitalized area of the city. Located on the Connective Corridor on East Genesee Street across from Syracuse Stage and near Syracuse University, Phoebe's is a favorite stop for theater goers. Phoebe's also offers private dining facilities with custom menus to suit. We invite you to join us-and make Phoebe's your new favorite place.

Setting was wonderful. Very unique. We were in a private party room . We chose the hot luncheon buffet with mimosa bowls. Service, food , location, off street parking were all excellent. If the food was that good for a luncheon buffet, I can only imagine what ordering off the regular menu would be like . Would highly recommend to anyone.

I came here with my boyfriend and another couple for dinner, and we were all delighted with our meal and experience. Personally, I felt the restaurant had a wonderful and quaint atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly, which made the experience even more enjoyable. We all enjoyed our meals as well. I would recommend to others! This would be a great place for a date night.

Nice restaurant with a classy coffee bar. Came for coffee & wifi while on our road trip but found delicious fried fish and an excellent salad in a charming old-world atmosphere. Everything on the menu looked great.

Loved the variety on the menu and had a hard time deciding what to order. Finally landed on the stuffed pepper which was excellent, but a small portion. The rest of our party had quiche, sandwich and burger - all very good. Definitely a good choice for lunch in Syracuse.

I was there for lunch with a co worker and I had the French dip. Pretty good but the Aus jus had no flavor. Hot colored water. the sandwich it's self was Ok not sure I would order it again. My co worker had the cup of tomato soup and the Phoebes salad with chicken which she said was quite good. Lunch for two with two diet cokes came to $34.56.
