Sweet Sues has the most generous breakfast I have ever attempted to consume. The portions are huge, especially the pancakes which are the size of dinner plates. They offer a “non-edible” prize to anyone who can eat 3.
The menu at Elderberry Pond uses many of the fresh seasonal ingredients from the farm. Many of the meat dishes are prepared from local organic and/or grass fed livestock including their own pork and beef from farms in upstate New York that raise free range livestock, hormone and antibiotic–free, with healthy diets.
We ordered Potato Leek Soup (using their own potatoes and leeks), Turkey Chili and their signature crab cakes. Everything was delicious, especially when paired with some delicious wines, a chardonnay and a gewürztraminer. Service was attentive and helpful especially with our questions regarding gluten in the recipes.
Our good friends had their wedding reception at Bristol Harbor, on Canandaigua Lake, on a stunning fall day. Everything about the reception was top-shelf, from the décor, to the food and prompt service, not to mention the Hollywood-star-like glamor of the beautiful bride and groom!
A hike around Canadice Lake is like going back in time.
Canadice Lake used to have cottages all along its shore. Staring in 1872 the city of Rochester decided to use Canadice and Hemlock Lakes as a water supply, and began buying all the shoreline property.
Head out for a drive on a fall day, looking for some extra color, and you may find yourself heading towards Naples, NY. Located beyond the southern tip of Canandaigua Lake, Naples captures the small town charm of the Finger Lakes region, and adds a sweet little twist of it’s own.
