    I loved sitting outside on the covered deck eating our lunch. Very nice atmosphere with gorgeous views of Seneca lake. Theirs is a strictly outside restaurant, no inside seating. You order at a window then then they call your name when your order is ready. Everyone was super nice and answered any questions. Lots of variety to choose from. It was a bit pricey for sandwiches, two sandwiches and 2 colas were $40. I would be back to try their breakfast menu. Dog friendly. No bathroom, just a port-a-potty.

    What a great little find! Totally forgot to take pictures of our sandwiches before we demolished them, but you can see we were (mostly) members of the clean plate club! The Brie bird was just an OUTSTANDING sandwich- it was really a great surprise. The staff were incredible, the vibe relaxed and sunny, and the view is beautiful. Thank you elf in the oak crew!

    Very cute and beautiful place to grab food near Seneca Lake. The view is amazing but i think it’s a bit pricey. Also, they have very limited menu, only regular hot or iced coffee. Also no fresh juice available, only from the pack. 9$ for just plain croissant is bit pricey I guess but this place has good view and vibe. Parking is free.

    What a great little find! Fantastic views. The food was delicious. The Italian soda was a game changer. Would highly recommend the Italian sodas! The biscuit sandwich was really delicious but it fell apart when eating (possibly my own fault holding it too hard) tehe but still really yummy!

    It's a sandwich place and the sandwiches are very good. Breakfast is only served sometimes and only until 11, and they sometimes open at 11 and do not serve breakfast (which was a sad realization for me because I was hoping to have some of the breakfast food as sandwiches aren't really my thing). With that said, let me reiterate that the sandwiches are very good and if you go with the mindset of looking forward to having sandwiches, you will not be disappointed! The view is also lovely and sitting on the patio is great. I enjoyed the record player adding to the ambiance. I'm not sure if the window setup made it hard to hear but two items we ordered were missed (not added to the order) and I was really disappointed about it but the huge line of people that had appeared since we had ordered made it a big deterrent to go to the window and order anything more. Was also slightly concerned that the bathroom was a port-a-pottie. And although it did have the foot pump water, I guess I'm not well versed enough to know about whether the hand washing water is recycled but it makes me nervous considering that sandwiches are all eaten using hands, but maybe I'm paranoid. The staff was super nice (if hard of hearing) and deserves bonus kudos.
