Dinner:  Mel’s at 22 in Cooperstown, offers consistently great meals and live entertainment on the weekends.

Lunch:  Hawkeye Grill in Cooperstown, enjoy sitting on the veranda at the Otesaga Hotel and taking in beautiful Otsego Lake with a good meal.

Breakfast and Lunch: Stagecoach Coffee on Pioneer Street is one of our favorites for freshly roasted coffee in the mornings or a special coffee drink later in the day.  They have a great lunch selection too!


Dinner: Bella Michael’s on River Street has a great atmosphere for classic italian dining – always a great meal with wonderful service.

Lunch: If you are looking for someplace special for lunch or a late evening option for a quick bite, then the Yellow Deli is our pick.  Homemade breads for sandwiches, fresh soups and salads and a beautiful selection of iced drinks and teas in a unique atmosphere.

Breakfast and Lunch: Nick’s Diner is a local area favorite offering all of the typical ‘diner’ fare (breakfasts, lunches and dinners), plus pizza!
