We've come here for breakfast and lunch a few times. They have the BEST coffee. My dad said the hot beef sandwich was amazing. I always get eggs and meat and I've never gotten glutened here. One of the few places I feel safe eating here in Rochester.

Based on many favorable reviews, we stopped at Grandma's for breakfast as we were passing through Rochester. We wish we had gone to our second pick, Rooster's, instead. Based on our breakfast experience, we could only conclude the cooks had recently changed to those with a vastly inferior breakfast cooking skill-set. Or maybe eggs were not their specialty. Or perhaps... More

Found Grandma's Kitchen on Trip advisor! Like local places versus chains! Rushed to get there in time for breakfast but changed out mind and ordered lunch. I ordered grilled liver and onions with bacon. Came with 2 sides, ordered side Salas and mashed with gravy. Liver was excellent only wish mashed were home made versus instant! Wife had polish sausage... More

Very good homemade food. Large servings at good price. Friendly service and fairly quick to get food out. Interesting decor on Korean War. Looks like shabby place in strip mall but good.

Wife was talking about Skyline Chili and Fazoli's. Grandma's had a spaghetti special so I was hooked. It was very good and came with a salad and garlic bread. Not great but good food like you might make at home

Me and my husband were intrigued by the appearance of the restaurant from outside. It seemed like an small antique place. When we were inside, we fell in love with ambience. It felt very homely. I think we ordered cream of chicken soup, coleslaw, and the chicken plate and the bread pudding. We liked the fried chicken. The breading and... More

This is the picture of local eating. It's a no frills cafe that makes "home cooked" meals in a restaurant setting. The service was good the food was good. It wasn't the best meal I've ever had but it wasn't "fancy" breakfast either. Excellent start to the day.
