We enjoyed a dinning experience.
On a Sept, rainy day in upstate NY.
A little bit of the outdoors comes inside.
Food is fresh and interesting.
The blue tea refreshing.
Delightful service.
Best to make a reservation.

Food and service were great. The setting is a little rustic. You're semi-outside. But that is what the place is about. Also we were seated near the band, so it was a little loud at times. Even with those minor issues, the experience was great.

Excellent in all areas. The only comment concerns the volume of the music p laying. It was very loud. Most of our group could not enjoy conversation because the music is too loud

Origins Cafe was such a fun and unique experience! We went for a Friday night dinner and were pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful place. Service was excellent and the ambiance was so inviting with the great bad playing during dinner. Well done!

The grounds of this restaurant were unique. It rained the night we were there but the awning kept everyone dry and comfortable. Food was eclectic and I loved the shredded edible flowers that added color to my meal. We had meatloaf which was juicy and better than most restaurants, soba noodles very tasty and eggplant Parmesan, that was off the normal presentation but still good. Carrot Cake a must!

What a unique experience. We came on what ended up being a concert night. Warning though if this is case food is served buffet style and ended before our reservation at 745 for dinner was. We were able to get some food fortunately but ended up not being a dinner. The ambiance and just fun vibe of this place made up for it. Can't wait to try a regular dinning service night, wish they mentioned there'd be no regular dinner service for the time we booked but 100% going back.

The place is in an active greenhouse. Very nice. The food was excellent and not over priced. The live music was especially good and at the right volume so we could still talk during dinner. I would recommend this place.

What a great treasure for Cooperstown NY. It's like an authentic garden of Eden version of the rainforest cafe. You get to eat great food next to fruit trees and other very real plants inside a greenhouse. Truly a one of a kind experience In a very small town.
10/10 wish they were open for service more often.

I always love experiencing the greenhouse cafe feel. The staff are kind, friendly and helpful. The food is always delicious! Its a lovely experience all around, and we will return again soon!

My recommendations:
Their mimosas are delicious, their coffee is yummy and in served in a cute pottery mug, every item on their menu never disappoints!

Delicious curry chickpea salad...and tasty meatloaf panini. Dining inside a greenhouse, among the plants, is unique and special. Our favorite restaurant in Cooperstown.
