Steve's is my favorite place for breakfast!! Usually there is a wait on the weekends, but that is because it is great food and great service. This is in the top 5 places for breakfast in Rochester for sure.

I had the pear asiago omelette and it was delicious. The pear was fresh. My sister had the pancake the size of a dinner plate and so light and delicious. The menu is extensive both with breakfast and lunch. The prices are reasonable. Highly recomend
