Outstanding stop for breakfast and/or lunch. Stopped in around noon on Saturday March 4th, 2017 and the place was packed; winter in New York and the place was packed, that says it all. Local establishment with excellent service and a rather expansive menu. The four of us enjoyed a variety of food including an outstanding Ruben sandwich, a excellent melted... More

We arrived about 30 minutes before closing. The juice machine was turned off. The food was good, hot and as described. We will go back.

We had breakfast before a canal tour. The place was steadily busy but not crammed, and the service was fine. They make good potato pancakes, which can be substituted into breakfast plates - yummy. Sorry I failed to take a photo. I recommend one instead of hash browns or home fries.

Perfect place to make friends at Toastmasters' meetings every Thursday. The servers are great, the food is excellent, and the prices are reasonable! Very comfortable atmosphere

A great little place to grab a nice homemade breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Staff is friendly. Atmosphere out of the 50's. You won't be sorry if you stop in. Close to the Erie Canal if you'd like to take a look.

We love to try local favorites, so we headed to Tom's for breakfast before out boat ride on the canal. So glad we had plenty of time because it took a half an hour to get our food, which is quite a long time for breakfast. Maybe it was because it was October & tourist season basically over or maybe...

Toms is like stepping back in the past! From the interesting paintings on the wall to the homemade food. The portions are large and the quality never disappoints. I like their soups, club sandwiches, Friday's fish fry and their huge omelets! Yum! Toms is only opened for breakfast and lunch hours though. Come eat and then walk off your great... More
