Wades has been here a very long time & is a favorite of locals. The breakfast is decent, but coffee not drinkable.

Love the cinnamon toast! Cash only, but ATM available. Great food at a reasonable price. While I was working at JAF I had breakfast there a couple of times.

If you are in the area this is a must stop off for a great breakfast. Their omelettes were the best I have ever had and is a favorite locals stop. I don't think you will be disappointed if you stop in for breakfast and I hear they have great raisin bread.

Seemed to have to wait a long time for the end product which seemed of okay quality. Love diner food and really have to drive towards scriba for quality diner fare.

I'm in Oswego at least once a year and this was my first visit to Wade's. Everthing was new as there was a fire last year and the entire place was rebuilt. When visiting family, we eat out frequently, but not once in 16 years had we visited Wade's. There were 7 of us in the group, so we did... More

I first went to Wade's in May 1979 when visiting SUNY Oswego. Frankly, it is one of the main reasons some alumni return to visit Oswego. The was a fire a a year or two ago and they rebuilt and are open again. Wade's has not missed a step. The omelets are as good as ever. It doesn't matter what... More

You can't have visited Oswego and not have heard of Wade's Diner. It is embedded in the city's history and it is a landmark. I had visited it twice before the old diner was destroyed in a fire but I must say that the new Wade's Diner is even better. The new building has kept its old charm and some... More

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and diners are great place to get 'real' food. Wade's was great for breakfast and is a true diner. We went there early on a Saturday morning and there were just a few customers. The service was super friendly & very fast. I wish we could go back tomorrow but we head... More
