Amato’s Cravings is a “spin-off” of Amato’s Café, which was located on University Ave in Rochester, NY and owned by Justin Amato. His tiny café won the ROC City Cheap Eats Award by Channel 10 News in 2015.
Justin’s passion for cooking started in high school and pretty much saved his life from heading down a different path, which would not have served him well.
His dream is to have a five-star restaurant/café, serving nothing but fresh homemade dishes. He loves to try new recipes with the best ingredients for his customers.
Justin recently married Brittney Amato who is his right-hand woman in the business! Together, they bring a “spark” to the front of the house, getting to know everyone’s name and striking up a friendship!
The Amato family has always backed Justin up. The talent he brings to the business is shown with love and passion. He is optimistic and full of hope that with the right attitude and the right ingredients, he will make the customer come back with a smile and leave happy!
I had the pleasure of visiting Amato's one early morning when I had time to kill before work. Recently found out about them via Instagram and followed their posts about daily specials. The cafe is operated Justin Amato, who struck me as a young man with big dreams and a fantastic attitude. Also family oriented as pictures of his baby adorn the cooking area.
The open face breakfast was fantastic. Expecting the small toast I'd normally get elsewhere, to my surprise Justin made 2 over easy eggs with a few strips of bacon and cheese. For home fries, he took a baked Idaho potato and crumbled it on the grill. A WHOLE IDAHO TATER! I was not expecting all that for $6. And I got both quantity and quality product.
