The Old World Cafe and Ice Cream shop is great place to relax and have a casual lunch or snack break. Prices are reasonable, the space is charming and the food is quite good. Be sure to take out some of their excellent baked goods.

Very friendly, looked like anything you might have for lunch or a snack would be just right. We only stopped for a snack, but we would have had lunch if the time was right.

My friend and I enjoyed a fabulous lunch of homemade soup and sandwiches. Everything is made fresh every day! Located downtown Corning, it is rich in history and food. They also have a great selection of coffee and ice cream. We will be back!

We stopped here for a quick lunch and they didn't bat an eye when we asked to split a sandwich. They were very accommodating and you paid after you were done eating. The atmosphere in the shop was cute and had the old fashioned look.

We stopped here in Corning. Really great sandwiches and soup. Terrific ice cream. The bakery items looked great although we did not try them.
