Every week, one of Broadway Café’s baristas scrawls the weekly coffee special on the pastel chalkboard menu, eking out space alongside specialty pizzas, deli-style sandwiches, and salads. In addition to classic pies, such as meat lovers or margarita, cooks bake inventive iterations that include the buffalo chicken and the Rueben pizza, topped with shredded corn beef, swiss cheese, and kraut with a russian dressing sauce. Guests can also saunter in for breakfast sandwiches and wraps, all of which are available for catered events, such as birthdays, bat mitzvahs, and upscale bee attacks.
Outside, under a mammoth ice-cream cone, Arctic Island stands at the ready to sate sweet teeth and cool down overheated palates. Broadway Cafe's sister business slings soft-serve cones, scoops Premium Homemade Ice Cream flavors such as peppermint patty, and sprays whipped cream onto banana splits.
Dedicated to providing hearty meals at affordable prices for Syracuse's working people, Cosmo's Cafe's owner and his dedicated staff plate ample portions of classic American breakfast and lunch fare. Cosmo documents his culinary adventures online, making evident his passion for cooking and love for the café. Breakfast feasts sizzle in skillets throughout the day, served to-go or at tables under the pleasant glare of the café's hanging plants and richly hued green walls, and lunch-box specials allow diners to pair deli sandwiches with salads or homemade soups. On Fridays, fish sandwiches served with slaw and fries satisfy dietary requirements for cuisine often misconstrued as vegetarian cuisine, preventing diners from having to eat vintage hot rods or the innards of pinball machines.
We offer the strongest and freshest coffee in Syracuse. All the beans we sell are less than one day old and a quarter pound of beans goes into every pot. Any coffees may be custom roasted to any of 11 different roasts...one pound minimum, call a day ahead.
To give the Mona Lisa Café authentic European flair, the proprietors adorned the bistro from head to toe with décor and displays imported from Italy. Amongst the crimson walls and marble- and tile-topped café tables, patrons peruse the gelato selections and pastries kept chilled behind glass, seeking something to pair with their coffee drinks. During dinner, the kitchen crafts its own red sauce for pasta and parmigiana dishes, while fresh mozzarella melts over prosciutto and tomatoes in panini sandwiches. Patrons can dine al fresco in the fresh air as live music entertains them.
The staff at Colie's Cafe seeks to embody the affability and good nature of Albert Coleman "Colie" Linehan, a Canandaigua native born in 1917 and known for his joviality. According to Metromix, owner Michael Linehan, Colie's grandson, crafts hearty sandwiches, wraps, and pizzas to cement his station in the family lineage. In addition to its specialty sandwiches served on white, wheat, rye, or a roll, the eatery offers wraps, quesadillas, and sandwiches served in gluten-free tortillas as well as menu items with fewer than 600 calories for diners with a fear of large numbers.
