There is a perfect spot in Riomaggiore right where the buildings meet the water, with a great view of the village and the ocean. We just perched ourselves on the rocks after a long hike and snoozed a ... read more
bit. It was beautiful, relaxing, and wonderful. Something that distinguishes Riomaggiore from the other villages is it's very accessible boat dock. A few years ago, Cinque Terre experienced pretty devastating floods. Even though the repairs were still being done on a few of the buildings and the dock, if you hadn't known that there was flood damage, you wouldn't have been able to tell. Taking the train among these villages is so easy, and is no more than a 5 minute trip between each village.

Abbott's Frozen Custard

A Rochester area institution! Abbott's has many locations throughout the area. One of the places Rochesterians miss most when they move away is Abbott's! Try their famous chocolate almond custard ... read more
(creamy chocolate custard filled with roasted, salted almonds). Even the plain vanilla is delicious. Abbott's usually offers additional flavors of the day (often fruit flavors). A variety of sundaes & other frozen treats are available, all featuring their wonderful homemade custard.

This comfort brunch is worth a try for their huge delicious portion. You will most likely be eating for three at this rate... We ordered special banana french toast, chili omelet, and corned beef ... read more
hash. All came with tasty sides of toast, grits, hash brown, muffin, or fruits. I was impressed with their grits ( I am a grits lover) as well as their blue muffins. It was freshly baked, moist, and spongy. The service was attentive and extremely welcoming. Staff was sincere and helpful. I highly recommend this place. I hope you give this place a try! Cheers!
