In the summer, take in the panoramic vista over a refreshing meal on the lakeside veranda, and in the winter, cozy next to one of the roaring fireplaces with a craft cocktail.

Fargo Bar & Grill

Casual food and family atmosphere are the calling card of Fargo Bar & Grill, a neighborhood restaurant and tavern built in 1836.

Enjoy a flight of craft beer on the shady patio, tuck into a creative special or signature sandwich from the menu, or stop by after dinner for a round of pool or darts. Be sure not to miss the Fargo burger, the best Burger in the Finger Lakes.

The Village Market

In the heart of Aurora, the Village Market offers visitors a selection of gifts, pantry staples, freshly brewed organic coffee, morning pastries and desserts, and a growing selection of craft beer.

This quaint market also features take-home meals, soups, chili and chowders — all prepared fresh daily by chefs at the Aurora Inn.
