Walked to Cafe Kubal from Hotel Syracuse (Marrott Downtown) for breakfast on a weekday morning. Enjoyed sitting in their corner location while watching the world go by. Cafe Kubal had several interesting breakfast options, generally variations of egg sandwiches, but nothing even remotely close to the bland Egg McMuffins of the fast-food world.

We stopped in at Cafe Kubal's newest location across from the amazing National Grid Art Deco bldg..

Just felt kind of deserted, need to bring in more traffic!

While doing research at the Onondaga County Library, we asked about a great local place to grab a sandwich. The sweet ladies (Teresa and Holly) from the 3rd floor of the library steered us to this eatery. I must say, the sandwiches are priced reasonable, especially for the quality and wonderful combination of sandwiches. The limited menu at first glance... More

This is the local coffee gem spot. Excellent atmosphere, friendly service, and delightful coffee. We were here two years ago and found they have sustained their high quality.

I have to say they serve some of the best coffee I've tasted anywhere!! Had the pleasure of a delicious breakfast sandwich and coffee this past weekend while in town for graduation. After graduation ceremony, I found a second Cafe Kubal location on campus!!!

This is my favorite coffee shop. The coffee is great, in every shape and form. The decor is eclectic. Forget the rest, Kubal is the place.
