Where the locals go and the waitresses know everyone. Booths, counter service. Can be crowded but the real Auburn. Great breakfast in the old fashioned real diner brought in on a flat bed truck.

We like the trip into Skaneateles because it is close, different scene, good coffee and yummy breakfast goodies. My favorite are the hot breakfast dishes and scones. Quick service, local spot with lots of hub bub sometimes. Intimate and friendly. My husband has a frequent buyer card for coffee.

Beautiful, spacious replica of an elegant farm house with lovely porch seating overlooking grounds. Organically grown, delicious local produce for the kitchen with trained chef for lovely, flavorful meals. Out in the country but worth the drive of 25 minutes. Excellent local wines and good service.

MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE LUNCH. I love freshly cooked foods like mom used to make. My favorite is the chicken breast sandwich cooked fresh. Great salad bar, lots of local business people and room for a group. There is an area with large tables for 6-10 people or more. If you are a real large group call ahead so they can prepare for you.

Elegant building with large porch dining and an inside dining room with a historical setting. Fireplace in fall is wonderful. Lots of parking and can handle large groups easily. Weddings here frequently or a photo shoot of the bride on the grounds. Good food and upscale menu.

Excellent deep fried everything. Fish is flown in daily and breaded on site for a melt in your mouth fish and chips experience. Shrimp and scallops are available. Great coleslaw and ice cream. Can be busy and crowded but have patience it is worth it. Fridays are more crowded bc fish is a tradition in this area on Fridays. Park in back and enjoy the Skaneateles downtown by walking a little.... Less tourist after Labor Day.

More of a snack shack for hot dogs but this place in fall and summer has the best (and well kept) scenery EVER! Just drop by and have a soda but the hot dogs are great and the green beans are very good. Ice cream yourself and relax looking at the lake.

Drinks & Nightlife
Never had nitrogen beer before and now I think it is superior to other types. Local brewery, remodeled historic site, good food, hopping on Fridays and could have music. Booths and tables with a bar.

Entertainment & Activities
Summer playhouse with the BEST OFF BROADWAY MUSICALS. We used to actually have a merry go round at the site but it was purchased and turned into a lovely live theatre. Actors are brought to Auburn for specific plays like CATS, HAIR, GUYS AND DOLLS................ These people are excellent at their part and work extremely hard. The seats are frequently nearly sold out but there isn't a bad seat in the house. Small, intimate and outstanding entertainment. If you are local you have season tickets. There are two other live theaters offered by the Merry Go Round Playhouse if you have time.
