Since its opening, Oriens Café has been a shining example of a new café philosophy, finally being imported to the United States. Sipping a steaming cup of coffee in a neighborhood café is very traditional in Italy. This ritual has been an important part of the Italian culture for centuries, where people take a moment to reflect and enjoy a comforting cup of perfectly brewed coffee.

You can also return for lunch or dinner and enjoy all the gourmet recipes that Chef Nancy Catalano and her staff prepare directly for you, as well as, upscale California wines.

How about tasting one of the 40 varieties of the tastiest Gelato in New York State?

Even though the service is very quick, Oriens Café is a place to slow down. You will surely enjoy the calm, pleasant, and total experience provided at Oriens Café.

Over 30 aromatic varieties of coffee

At Oriens Café, you can recreate this experience. While sipping a cup of one of the over 30 aromatic varieties of steaming coffee, you are fortunate enough to be able to accompany it with absolutely the best Italian pastries created by the Sicilian Master Salvatore Garofalo and local pastry Chef Amanda Miller.

Oriens Café is not your usual café. It's a variety café…a delicious patisserie and a gourmet restaurant with a homey, relaxed atmosphere. This is the key concept developed by entrepreneur John Catalano, which he and his staff are lovingly putting into practice at Oriens Café.

"The real ambition though, is expanding this concept to include all of the United States", as Mr. Catalano often states. An accomplishment he is sure to achieve!

These secrets combined with the absolute quality of the gourmet food you'll find at Oriens, will no doubt delight any palate!
