We are diner freaks. The Water Street Cafe was a perfect find. Our grandson thought the Mickey Mouse pancakes were divine. My husband enjoyed his corned beef hash omelet and I believe the French toast special with strawberry/blueberry syrup was about the best to be found. At old-time diner prices. The servers were funny and kind. Yep, even had the shiny barstools at counters that all the classic diners have.

We walked down to Water Street Cafe for an early breakfast today. Friendly people, both staff and fellow guests, and an authentic local place. Food was very good, eggs over medium were a bit overdone, but bacon was tasty, and so were breakfast potatoes. We would definitely return.

If you like the old cafes from the 60's, Water St. Cafe is the place to have breakfast or lunch. It is conveniently located from the Ramada Inn and Holiday Inn Geneva, an easy walk from both places. The interior takes you back to small town America. People are friendly, food is excellent! You get your money's worth. Just be careful if you order the pancakes. They are the size of a dinner plate and there are three of them! There is also outside seating - 4 tables. Did not eat lunch there, but I'm sure it is as good as breakfast. Will definitely give it a try next year.

We had an old fashioned breakfast at old fashioned priced in a local restaurant that was a friendly to out-of-Towners as it was to the locals. We had great service and great food

Prices were very reasonable, service by all was really good. Two people working the griddles made the wait time quite short. Food was fresh and the selection was impressive. I'd definitely go back.
