Where to Eat

Are you a foodie or just the burger and fries type? With diners, delis, bistros, restaurants, pubs and coffee bars, and cuisine that ranges from American to Middle Eastern – there’s always something worth savoring!

And make sure you sample our seasonal specialties! Spring is the perfect time to get reacquainted with the old-time car-hop service at the A & W Restaurant. During the summer you won’t be able to resist stopping at one of our classic American ice cream stands. Fall brings fresh-pressed apple cider and homemade donuts at Hollenbecks Cider Mill in the town of Virgil. Warm up in the winter with a cup of gourmet coffee at one of our downtown cafes, local diners or drive through coffee shops.
