Easter Brunch

Join us for an indulgent Easter Brunch with renowned Chef Samantha Buyskes. The menu features everyone’s craveable favorite dishes, as well as delectable internationally-inspired creations. Wine by the glass specials, mimosas, and breathtaking views of Seneca Lake will be the perfect pairing to make this brunch one to remember.

Reservations are $5 per person. The reservation fee, besides guaranteeing a table, enters each guest into a raffle to take home the Once Easter Basket that includes local wines, foods and merchandise.

Walk-ins welcome but reservations are strongly encouraged due to high demand and limited availability.

Check the menu below to see our delightful variety of brunch options! Menu is à la carte and dishes are individually priced.

Take a WSET certified Wine Course

We partner with Cultivate FLX, one of the most exciting wine schools in the Finger Lakes to host engaging wine classes that’ll take your wine knowledge to the next level. They are here to develop and foster wine knowledge and expertise for wine professionals and enthusiasts through the globally recognized Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).

Not for nothing Wine Enthusiast Magazine included these courses in their article “Portugal, New York and Beyond: 8 Of the Coolest Places to Study Wine“.

Coming in Summer 2023...
