Hicks & McCarthy is a "go-to" location in the village of Pittsford that serves excellent breakfasts and lunches. Although often busy, parking is normally readily available and convenient and the service is excellent.

So delicious, attentive service. Parking is funky some on the street and some public parking behind the building. The village is adorable take time afterwards to walk along Main Street... More

We stopped at Hicks & McCarthy's for breakfast on Sunday. Good selection of breakfast foods. Attentive service. Delicious! Better than a bagel or donut or coffee shop! Good Value!

Breakfast oatmeal was cold, eggs were undercooked and Eggs Benedict had little flavor. Big disappointment.

Had some good breakfast and lunches here in the past...with new owners, unsure how that will go. Service was slow and uncertain and never got some items we had ordered.

We go to Hicks several times a month. My absolute favorite is the field green salad with really tender salmon, goat cheese, several kinds of berries and candied nuts. Amazingly good!!!
