Coffee & Treats in Canandaigua

Select Local Merchants

The Under Ground Café, christened after its subterranean location within the Place at Victor Village building, crafts a toothsome menu of sandwiches, salads, and freshly brewed coffee drinks. Sleepy eyes pop open and agree to release hostage brains after a sip of a bottomless cup of steaming Finger Lakes coffee ($1.45+), a bite of a fragrant block of baked cinnamon french toast ($3.50), or a sampling of a host of all-day breakfast bites. Beds of romaine and pillowy dinner rolls form a dais for the Under Ground salad ($6.50), a textural riot of dried cranberries, blue-cheese crumbles, and sugared walnuts, tucked in with a kiss of raspberry-walnut vinaigrette. Nip into a local legend with The Place panini ($7.50), a crisply ironed stack of grilled chicken and bacon, oozing with provolone and honey mustard, or stop irate sweet teeth from seceding with a rotating array of pastries and cookies ($1.50–$2).

Riley Greider is the mind, hands, and sweet teeth behind Sugar Mountain Bake Shoppe, a gourmet bakery specializing in cupcakes. More than 128 flavors rotate across the shop?s menu in groups of 13 to 20 each day, baked daily in small batches from fresh ingredients.

With such an enormous repertoire of recipes, the cupcake case has room for classics such as carrot cake alongside fancier flavors such as cinnamon french toast and cherry cr?me br?l?e?not to mention the decidedly outlandish, such as loaded baked potato and Game Day Chili. While retaining a home-baked look, many of the cakelets wear elaborate toppers of sprinkles, frosting swirls, or fruit. All this creativity won the shop the title of Best Cupcakes in City Newspaper?s 2011 Readers? Choice poll.

Moonlight Creamery, an ice cream shop founded by an engineer and her entrepreneurial neighbor, stresses two things: confections and community. The former is abundant, as scoops of homemade ice cream highlight a menu of sweets that includes cakes and pies, hot fudge sundaes with roasted walnuts, and handmade truffles. As for its mission to give back, the shop looks far and near, focusing on everything from using Fair Trade coffee and chocolate to hosting an annual Scholarship Day that raises money for its employees and local high school seniors who are enrolling in college.

Perkins began as a single humble Ohio pancake house in 1958. More than 50 years––and 440 national locations––later, each Perkins restaurant stays true to its roots by keeping those signature buttermilk pancakes the focal point of a 90-plus-item menu. Cooks layer the popular flapjacks in stacks of two, three, or even five and make the fluffy towers all the more tempting with toppings such as glazed strawberries, whipped cream, or flavored syrups. Breakfast favorites—including hearty omelets and country benedicts—are served all day, meaning kids and adults can order short stacks to accompany their jumbo-shrimp or steak dinner, instead of smuggling them in under a stovepipe hat. Unlike most other chain restaurants, Perkins also features in-store bakeries that churn out the shop's real fruit and cream pies, muffins, and chocolate-chip cookies.
