Quirky, enigmatic owner-and-adventurer Karina Murphy founded The Blue Frog Coffeehouse as a venue for similarly spirited sippers to take in live music, delectable bites, and obscene amounts of caffeine. Blue Frog's main event— coffee—entices java junkies with a wide selection of morning medicines, such as the finger-fluttering triple espresso ($2.50), the creamy white mocha ($2.95–$3.95), or the smooth, sleep-banishing breve ($3.25–$4). Classic coffee companions, such as steel-cut oatmeal ($4) and a bagel with cream cheese ($2.40) are the pillars of the breakfast menu, and creative concoctions, including the banola bagel with banana, honey, granola, and a choice of peanut butter or cream cheese ($3.50), exude an enticing, experimental allure. Late-risers and night owls can satisfy cravings with an assortment of savory, café-style sandwiches, such as the curried chicken-salad wrap ($5), or the warm, turkey-bacon-guacamole panini, which is topped with avocado, melted together with asiago cheese, and kept zestfully keen with a cilantro and onion bite ($6.25).

The Deli Downtown keeps it simple. They serve comforting American cuisine of baked-daily bagels, as well as inventive sandwiches made with tangy balsamic dressing, fresh mozzarella, smoked turkey, and homemade focaccia bread. An air of nostalgia permeates the restaurant, with its chessboard linoleum floors, silver-and-vinyl soda-fountain stools, and red-neon accents. The savory smells of toasted reuben and turkey-club sandwiches fill the remaining air as chefs labor at the panini press. For those who refuse to conform, diners can plot out their meal to perfect specificity with the build-your-own-sandwich menu.

Past custom tours have included birthday scavenger hunts, bachelorette weekends, and private birthday celebrations with wine tastings. Experience! The Finger Lakes draws on more than 30 years of intimate local knowledge to create lasting memories in a thriving area replete with natural beauty, rich culture, and a captivating history.

Casual Elegance is how I like to describe Atwater. We are serious about our wine, but not snobbish about it. You can come in with friends and have a great tasting and then picnic outside or you can pick our brains and we can educate you about our area and business in depth. We will cater the tasting to your likes.

Lime green walls surround guests at Mesa Grande Taqueria as they wait in a cafeteria-style line for their turn to watch cooks create customizable Mexican dishes. Tacos, burritos, nachos, and quesadillas materialize out of the restaurant’s fresh ingredients and meats, which include grilled chicken or steak that’s been marinated in chipotle adobo sauce, or vegetarian guacamole and black beans. As they diner, guests might also notice the restaurant’s energy-efficient lighting, reusable silverware and baskets, and biodegradable to-go utensils, which help the taqueria take its commitment to staying green well past its vivid walls.
