Here for a late breakfast with a group of 8. Wonderful food, atmosphere, and service. Every dish was huge, delicious, and enjoyed by our party. The red velvet pancakes and "eggs in purgatory" were some of our group's favorite items on the menu. Perreca's is on my MUST list every trip to Schenectady.

I've been to More Pereccas a number of times; most recently Nov 2016. It's the people who make this one of my favorite restaurants. Everyone is always so friendly and entertaining, it's like going to your favorite Aunt's house for comfort food and fun. The food and coffee are predictably good with some very nice daily specials and I think... More

I recently moved back to Schenectady after being away for a decade and was pleasantly surprised by my favorite bakery now in the restaurant business. A friend and I decided to go for a late lunch, mid-week (wednesday). I arrived first and was greeted promptly and pleasantly. A young man offered to seat me and bring me a drink. Once... More

Was here for brunch, a LONG wait since it was family weekend at Union College and we didn't have a reservation. Food was OK, portions huge (which seems to be how "good" is defined in these parts), service was good. An OK place to go if you're here, but not to make a detour for. Coffee was meh. Would like...

This restaurant has a nice space, nice atmosphere, good prices on quality wine but with the food they seem to have taken the easy way out piling on lots of calories with oil and buttter..They could use a refurbishing in the kitchen.

This was our 2nd family visit to enjoy the fresh, hearty, well prepared dishes. Can get crowded but worth the wait! Breads and pastries are to die for. Good value. Everyone left full and happy!

Kind of a disappointment. The original Perreca's is a great place, but the portions at More Perreca's are a bit skimpy, and also inconsistent.

No matter what you ordered, the bread steals the show. The service is fast and reliable and the selections are great. Give it a try and find a good place to go to be welcomed warmly. We will

Next door to historic Perreca's and the delicious baked goods available there, More Perreca's is one of our favorite places to go for a great meal. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced. The neighborhood feel adds to the relaxing atmosphere.

Love eating here! The service was perfect, really attentive and fast. The eggs is pergatory are delicious. This time I had the egg frittata with fontinella cheese with potatoes that were sweet potatoes and white. We also ordered the red velvet pancakes. Everything was great. Menu is really creative. The people next to us ordered the "reason to live"it's stuffed... More
