Sweet Temptations is a great little spot for breakfast or lunch! Their menu is filled with the comfort foods that we go to cafes and diners for! The service is great and so is the food!

Brother and I stopped in for lunch. Great surprise! Bean soup to start was really good and homemade. I ordered a toasted BLT. It was a triple and very very tasty. It was served with chips and pickles. Xtra mayo on the side. My Bro ordered the sausage and pasta. He raved about the sauce. Portions were plentiful. If you... More

Nice location with easy enough parking. Ambiance is set by local conversation and the traditional setting of what a diner should be. Eat at the traditional tables or at the spacious bar top. Inviting decor gives your eyes enough to feast on while waiting for your food. The food is great with little wait after your order.

This is a step back in time to a truly unpretentious local diner. Friendly welcome, curious looks from the regulars, and a good, honest breakfast. Prices are very reasonable, would definitely go back.

OK- The ambience is totally "diner", but the food is really good, and the service is fast and friendly. They serve a great breakfast, and my favorite lunch item is the BLT, served with chips. Lots of bacon, and fresh, red, squishey tomatoes! The burgers are also good, and they have turkey specials and mac 'n cheese. But....they close at... More

Hubby's a buffalo chicken eater and loved the sauce, which was not just hot but also flavorful in his $6.75 buffalo basket. My mushroom bacon burger needed seasoning but was a good size and had a nice flavor. The decor is colonial and charming and it's a good spot for a casual visit with friends.

We were looking for a breakfast joint in Oneida while visiting family, but didn't want the fast food greasiness found in Friendly's or Denny's. Found this gem thru a search engine and what a surprise! Awesome breakfast. Pancakes were to die for! Shredded potatoes were perfectly seasoned! We will definitely be returning when in town.

This is your classic local diner with nice décor, homemade food, daily specials, lots of local people, and quick, efficient service. Breakfast is always a treat whether fluffy pancakes or homemade home fries with an egg over easy. Lunch always brings a couple of filling specials that many older folks make their main meal for the day since they are... More
