This is easily the best breakfast in town and a historic restaurant in a railway car at that! It's small so expect a wait at the busy times... but sitting at the counter is a great experience! This is also walking distance from the house.

You must try Rochester’s “signature dish.”

Have you heard of the Garbage Plate? This unique mashup of ingredients is widely regarded as Rochester’s signature dish. The Garbage Plate has become a thing of legend, and the notorious local dish has been documented in many articles and news stories around the nation. The name “Garbage Plate” is trademarked by Nick Tahou Hots, home of the original Garbage Plate. You will also find other versions of this dish (and variations on it) on menus all over the Rochester area – from small hamburger joints, to fine dining restaurants and everything in-between.
