There is entertainment nightly, usually free and usually starting at 7pm. (click "When" (on the menu-bar) for schedules.)

The Cafe (at 115 South Ferry Street, Schenectady, NY 12205 - (518) 382-1938) is open daily 9am to 9pm.

The Cafe is home to the RockStar Open-Mic with Dan Goodspeed hosting the area's longest running open mic (pdf file), Sundays at 7:30pm. (Signup early)

Looking up the street to the left (south), one can catch a glimpse of our neighbor, "Slicks' Tavern" and a block further away is State Street. The Mohawk River is 2.5 blocks north of the Cafe.

People of all ages and walks of life visit our cafe, and while some enjoy a quiet book while sipping their tea, it is not unusual to hear or participate in a lively discussion about politics, the cost of gas, religion, the correct serving temperature of beer, or any other imaginable topic. Our guests are an eclectic bunch. Join us!
