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.

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.

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.
