If you’re looking for a bright spot just down the street from Bristol Mountain, try Café Sol, located at the corners of Bristol Road and Route 64 in Bristol.
Four of us arrived early on a Saturday night to avoid the crowd — you should make reservations — as it gets very busy.
We started with the popular Hummus appetizer. This is enough for a group to enjoy with three types of hummus: Classic, black bean and peanut butter (Which sounds gross but is awesome!)
Next we enjoyed the Hawaiian stir-fry which is loaded with veggies, Pan-seared Scallops with a blood orange poppy seed reduction, and the Lamb Ragu, and I tried the Mediterranean Mussels off the Tapas Menu, with a house salad. We did not order the Bacon-wrapped Java rubbed Filet Mignon — this time — it sounds delicious! There is Naked Dove Beer on tap as well as a nice selection of wines.
The service was attentive and the chef friendly, with lots of good choices whether dinner or tapas. The chef, Julia offers a varied menu with a lot of specials, which sources local produce.
Best was the fact that they staggered our courses keeping us eating for a long time and allowing us to catch up with old friends who had recently moved to Canandaigua.
They also serve breakfast at 8am on Saturdays and Sundays.
- Lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10:30a.m. 4 p.m.
- Dinner Friday thru Sunday 5 – 9 p.m.
- Breakfast Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m till 2 p.m.
