Strings of twinkling lights glow above Roam Cafe’s cozy tables and pale-green walls, illuminating guests as they dig into fresh, crisp salads, pizza tossed from hand-made dough, and paleo diet-friendly options. The long bar gleams in the sunlight streaming in from a wall-sized window, and patrons sip espresso and munch on Sunday brunch. Brick arches lend the interior a hint of roman architecture, an outdoor patio welcomes alfresco merriment during warming months, and diners wash down house-made meatballs with cold beer or warm tomato sauce.
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.
Nearly 20 self-serve frozen-yogurt stations line the wall at Soho Yogurt Cafe, spouting a rotating lineup of flavors that may include blueberry tart, birthday cake, and white-chocolate mousse.

Patrons can fill their cups with a mix of flavors, then sprinkle on toppings such as fresh fruit, chopped nuts, and cheesecake. Smoothies and coffee drinks round out the menu, along with gluten-free sweet options.
