- Recess Coffee
Coffee, WiFi, delicious baked goods -- in one of my favorite neighborhoods, the Westcott Nation.
- Pasta's Daily Bread, 308 S. Franklin St., Syracuse
Life is good, but it's even better with a loaf of Italian stretch bread and a container of Spicy Hot Tomato Oil.
- Regional Market, 2100 Park St., Syracuse
Always a fun outing, and the best source for seasonal, local produce and locally made food products.
- Lombardi's Fruit and Imports, 534 Butternut St., Syracuse
Go here to channel your inner Italian, and breathe in the intoxicating smell of fruit, cheese and meat.
- Smith Housewares and Restaurant Supply, Erie Boulevard and Townsend, Syracuse
Two floors of tools, gizmos and gear for professional chefs and home cooks. Need I say more?
