  • Top Review: “Stop here for fresh, delicious food in a clean and casual setting. We opted for Mexican food, but some ordered the breakfast, all day menu option. It looked great and I considered these items until I finally decided. I had a taco meat quesadilla with the most delicious beef filling — ground beef seasoned deliciously with something I don’t know, but noted and appreciated the caramelized bits of onion. However, even the onions were great! The perfect amount of cheese, not at all greasy, but still crunchy. The companion was a taco meat burrito that was delicious but not at all like a quesadilla. Rice, refried beans, tomatoes and lettuce wrapped in a homemade flour roll. They were so good that we split them up for each of us to enjoy! If you’re close to Schenectady, it’s close to 890. Lots of menu options—something for everyone.” – Jeff Brody

Perfectly cooked, I had a nice brown mustard and sauerkraut, my wife had the savory and mustard. The dogs went down easily. The fries were very good and my wife raved about the onion rings.

  • Top Review: “This eatery has a great selection for breakfast. Lots of things to choose from like omelets, waffles or even oatmeal. We arrived this morning, a Wednesday around 10am, and it was packed. I ordered something I’ve never tried before…orange cranberry pancakes. Very good. My husband got the standard fare of light, home fries, bacon, eggs on toast. He said the potatoes were nicely browned. The waiter refilled the coffee and tea and even brought lemons without asking. A bit pricey for breakfast, but very tasty. Would come again, but not regularly… special occasion for the price. – Tricia S
