European style café great for coffee, bagels, pastries, lunch and more! its at the corner of the street. Great place to just hang out and people watch.
Great outdoor seating in the summer right on Bidwell Parkway, also serving beer and wine.
Another local favorite. Many writers/college students/professor work on their computers there. It is right next to the Bidwell park where Farmer Markets on Saturdays and summer concerts on Tuesdays are held in summer. The patio space in the summer is lovely.
Local European-inspired cozy cafe with superb coffee and house made eats. Also offering wine, beer, and cocktails, it makes a great intimate cocktail hour.
“Rotating taps & creative American pub grub served beneath pennants, mounted deer & carousel horses.”
“SATO is Buffalo, NY's premier Japanese restaurant with traditional roots. At our upscale yet casual restaurant, located in the heart of the Elmwood Village, you can enjoy Japanese food that is scratch-made, fresh, healthy, and sophisticated, with authentic Japanese flavors blending with local and seasonal ingredients. Our Elmwood location has a diverse Japanese food menu ranging from sushi, ramen, Japanese curry, tonkatsu pork cutlet, salad etc. with a wide array of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free items. (from website but agree that their food is delicious.)”
“Amazing farm to table style menu with eclectic small plates and craft cocktails. ”
“Great chain restaurant for soup, salad and sandwiches. Make a right on Elmwood Ave. about 5 blocks on your left.”
“Just a couple minutes walk away. Grab a cocktail or some dinner and don't forget to get lost exploring this magnificent architectural beauty!”
