    Little metal tables with formica tops. Fast counter service. Fake ferns in planters between table areas. Really great coffee. Warmed croussants. and a table for two by the window.

    That was our early morning break as we passed through Warsaw on our way from Buffalo to Letchworth Park.

    The place was nothing fancy but it was chilly outside and it was warm inside. The staff were friendly and the food hit the spot. There was pleasant music playing gently overhead.

    This franchise of stores sells bakery goods of all sorts and coffee for breakfast. There is a lunch menu too of soups and sandwiches. (see the website below for full menu details).

Warsaw Warnings and Dangers

    The crime statistics for this area show that it is way below average for any crime risks.
    The quiet town and rural countryside do not seem to harbor any major dangers for tourists passing through or stopping to browse the local history.
    The chamber of commerce recommends self-guided walking tours of the historic sites in town so they obviously believe the place is safe too.

    Just to be safe though, remember to lock your car doors.... no use tempting fate.

    safe enough to tour the town

Warsaw Off The Beaten Path

    Before the great suffragette movement in Seneca Falls, NY there was the smaller fire of women's rights burning in Warsaw, NY.

    You can take a walking tour around Warsaw and see the homes and places frequented by men and women who were feeding that fire.

    Start with what was the Conable home at 38 Jefferson Street. Benjamin Conable was a strong suffragette supporter in the early 1900s. Turn north onto Liberty Street and head across Warsaw Village Park where rallies were given at many of the town events and fairs.
    Walk over to Summit Avenue where you will see the home of leading suffragette, Ella Crossett.
    Go down West Buffalo Street and the Humphrey home where meetings were held.
    Go on Buffalo Street to Main Street and the intersection of route 19 (Main Street) and route 20A (Buffalo Street). Susan B. Anthony did one of her early speeches at the church on the corner. Go South on Main Street. At 130 Main Street, the Public Library has an original of the "History of Women's Sufferage" autographed by Anthony.
    189 Main Street is the Gouinlock House where the original home owners supported all the cuases that were for furthering woman's place in society and government.
    And now you are back to Jefferson Street.

    Most of these homes are private property at this time and you should respect those peoples rights and property.

    Favorite thing: Warsaw gradually coalesced from many smaller communities in the area. Those neighborhoods still exist within the township of Warsaw.

    Some of the more prominent communities are:
    East Warsaw... suburb east of Warsaw on route 20A
    Martinsville... suburb south of Warsaw on route 19
    http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/d6398/cd470/
    part of Newburg... hamlet on route 19
    http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/d6398/cd62a/
    Oatka... village southeast of Warsaw
    http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/d6398/cd737/
    Pierce Corners... northwest of Warsaw
    South Warsaw... hamlet south of Warsaw
