If you like the smells of cheese then stop here, otherwise you can just shop it online and save the gas.
We thought it was going to be like a wine tour place but for cheese. It turned out to be a cheese store... a very big cheese store, but just a cheese store.
There were hundreds (literally) of types and colors and smells of cheeses. They represented a dozen countries or more.
Besides cheese, they have sauces and salsas and syrups.
We bought a few small samples of cheese and a decorative bottle of syrup, after about a half-hour of browsing.
on route 305, on the east side of the road, you can see a wonderous sight if you keep your eyes peeled. a large field with a gravel/tar driveway under an old arch; and in that field a pink barn.... not only pink, but stone and very very long.
it was locked up the day we were there but it definitely was worth a Kodak-pic or two.

You can't stop anywhere in America without having one of these fast food places nearby.
Downtown Cuba has its own McDonalds restaurant where locals bring their kids and catch a quick lunch while the kids play in the indoor play area.
It is counter-service. You order and take it out with you or go to one of the little plastic tables of bright yellow and red and eat in. The menu features several pre-cooked and re-heated items with marginal nutritional value. The price is cheap. The place is noisy and echoy.
The saving factor for eating here is that you know that some of the dollars you spent are turned into buildings and equipment that support children and their families that are hit by a medical emergency. part of McDonalds profits go to support the Ronald McDonald Houses (http://www.rmhc.org).
This is a counter-service deli which serves submarine sandwiches and premade salads.
They make the sandwiches, while you watch, to the specifications you give. I like the turkey with oil and lettuce/tomato/onions. The bread is made fresh daily in the building and is soft and chewy. The meat portions aren't exactly generous but a $5 sandwich is definitely enough to fill me up for lunch.
The place was clean. The staff was fast but not very friendly (not rude but not smiley either). The price was very reasonable and the sandwich was delicious.
I was in and out of there, with a sandwich to eat in the car, in under 12 minutes.
Cuba, NY is a relatively safe place to visit.
They only have 5 registered sex offenders and the town rated in the top 20% of safe American cities. Petty theft (shoplifting) is the only prevelant crime and even that is lower than average for a town of this size.
So, use common sense and blend in and you won't be targeted for any misdeeds.
This course is way out in the boonies. It is basically rolling farmland that has been cropped and de-treed into a golf course. The fairways are very hard surfaced and wide opened so that you can get long drives without getting into much trouble. There are waterways adjacent to many of the fairways but only one hole has a true water hazard. The rough is scruffy weeds and not too much of a deterent. The greens are fairly well kept but fast in the hot summers.
The course is a full 18 holes and over 6000 yards long. When you get done with your exercise, they have a nice bar and lounge where you can tell stories of how well you did.
The cost is under $25 with cart rental.
to get there:
