They offer super yummy specialty coffees that have you wishing for more once you reach your last drop. The food is great- from salads to clubs and wraps and panini's..you name it- they have it. Great atmosphere.

Wonderful homemade soup and grilled sandwich. Reasonably priced. Good choices. The desserts looked wonderful but we did not indulge. Great cup of coffee.

Cole and Parks is an alternative to Starbucks and other such coffee/sandwich shops. It's located in a remodeled old home just off the NY Thruway at exit 45 Victor/Rochester. We like their baked goods and specialty coffees. Their breakfast wraps, etc, are done with a lot more flair and taste than your donut shop would do. But the facts (a) that it is so conveniently located and (b) that it has a drive-through window makes one believe one could grab something quick while on a road trip. This is not the case. The most recent time, we simply ordered a latte, regular coffee, and two pre-made pastries, and we waited at the drive-through for around 10 minutes. This is quite typical. For eating in, however, the atmosphere is very nice, the rooms are well-decorated. There is even some outdoor porch seating when the weather permits.

Cole & Parks is a poor excuse for a coffee/breakfast house. Walked in for a Breakfast meeting. I saw 5 or 6 people in the back & nobody upfront. Guy at front on phone with friends and walked into back to continue conversation when I arrived. After 4-5 "Hello's" it appeared the guy phone was telling someone to go take care of me. Very little food in the pastry display case. The Croissant was day old and burned. Went to their coffee pots and the coffee was cold. Ironically, they had great service to make sure you knew to not dare get an extra cup of coffee from thier cold thermos's. Told the girl about the old/cold coffee and I got the space cadet " Ohhh!". This place appears to be run by kids who can't spell customer service. Why is this place in business?

If you shop around Eastview mall and want a good and healthy lunch- just go east 1 mile. Cole & Parks is the place to go. Sitting on the NW corner of 96, Cole & Parks is a restored rambling house with its own parking lot. And its own bakery.
It is a quick and pleasant alternative - for breakfast, lunch, an early supper, take-out - or just cookies. The menu is surprisingly substantial - choice of salad, soup, sandwich, wrap or panini - or choose soup and a half sandwich. Breakfast is available all day -even a broccoli quiche at 5 pm. Beverages include espresso and cookies are made on the premises. Cautionary note - cookies are usually sold out by closing each day.
For a well-managed, friendly eating place with homemade food and quick service, eat in or take-out, or business catering, Cole & Parks is irresistibly delicious.
