Good, solid American breakfast! That's their specialty - only breakfast hours. That's how they make their money.

Wades has been here a very long time & is a favorite of locals. The breakfast is decent, but coffee not drinkable.

Love the cinnamon toast! Cash only, but ATM available. Great food at a reasonable price. While I was working at JAF I had breakfast there a couple of times.

If you are in the area this is a must stop off for a great breakfast. Their omelettes were the best I have ever had and is a favorite locals stop. I don't think you will be disappointed if you stop in for breakfast and I hear they have great raisin bread.

I first went to Wade's in May 1979 when visiting SUNY Oswego. Frankly, it is one of the main reasons some alumni return to visit Oswego. The was a fire a a year or two ago and they rebuilt and are open again. Wade's has not missed a step. The omelets are as good as ever. It doesn't matter what... More
