The food and social scene in Pittsford is great! I've listed local favorites as well as some within a 10-15 minute drive that I think are worth the trip. Enjoy!!!

THE BEST ICE CREAM ANYWHERE! This is locally, handcrafted ice cream that will knock your socks off! There are non-dairy options (made with coconut milk) that are equally delicious! If your not in the mood for ice cream, try a local made pastry and a delicious fresh brewed espresso or cappuccino....They also sell local artisan goods if you want to prepare an at home dinner during your visit!

OK so this is not health food by any stretch but it is a local favorite for burgers and "garbage plates". If you don't know what a garbage plate is, welcome to Rochester! You may want to use your indulgence pass for this place! It's worth it.......Note: there is no seating but it's only 2 minutes from the house (if you can make it back without finishing it first!)

In the village of Fairport, this is one of the best local places for authentic Italian food. Make a reservation on the weekend! Very nice atmosphere and fun location in the village! When you finish your meal, head across the street to the Fairport Brewery for a handcrafted beer or kombucha.

This is by far one of the best lunch spots for those who want to eat healthy! Organic vegetables, grass-fed & free-range beef / chicken and options to create your own salad, grain or broth bowls! I am a huge fan of Corelife (there are 3 other locations but this is the closest at about 15 mins away).
