Brunch at Jay's Diner


Looking for a good place for breakfast/brunch?  Try Jay’s Diner at 2612 West Henriettta Road.  It’s open 24 hours a day just in case you need a snack around 2am. 


We went for brunch on Sunday -- we were looking for a place that serves breakfast all day.  Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive (and she told me I smelled nice….must have been my new shampoo!)  The kitchen was a little slow but the place was pretty packed and the wait wasn’t anywhere near outrageous. 


I got a spinach and feta omelette and it was light and fluffy and had the spinach cooked right into the egg mixture.  I wish I knew how to make an omelette like that.  Also, it was huge and served with hash browns and toast.  Tasty!  My friend had the French toast with sausage and by the way he housed it, I have to say he enjoyed it immensely. 


Prices were reasonable.  It was only around $15 for two meals and two coffees.  If you’re a student, flashing your student ID will get you 10% off your bill.  They also have free wireless if you need to stay connected.

Love Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte But Not the Price Tag?


Do you love Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, but hate the hefty price tag?  Last time I checked, a grande pumpkin spice latte cost $4.30+tax.  As a former Starbucks barista, I have a little trick that can save you a little cash and still get that delicious creamy pumpkin taste.

Can You Get Any Good Deals at P.F. Chang’s?

My boyfriend got a gift certificate for P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and we finally got around to using it this weekend.  P.F. Chang’s is one of the signature restaurants built into the East View Mall and we had both been wanting to give it a try for a while.  Was it any good?  And the bigger question for this blog – can you find any good deals?

Local Treasures – The Distillery

Last night my boyfriend and I stopped at our local Distillery to take advantage of Local Restaurant Week – we had a good time and found a ton of great deals. 


First let me tell you a little about the Distillery for those who haven't been.  There are actually three locations in the Rochester area -- one in Greece (which I’ve never been to), one on Mt Hope Ave, and one on Winton Road South.  The Distillery is basically a local sports bar with pretty great food.  It’s the perfect place for a drink and snacks after work or to bring the family to watch the game on Sunday.  They have a huge menu and daily specials – really something for everyone.
