We’re so fortunate to have one of the best restaurants in the Finger Lake region—Hazelnut Kitchen—within walking distance from our Inn. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming, with an airy-open kitchen while still focused on fine dining and impeccable service. It’s the perfect combination of dining styles and phenomenal modern flavors for an excellent culinary experience.
In fact, Hazelnut Kitchen holds the number one spot on TripAdvisor as the best restaurant in Trumansburg, NY. The five-star reviews call to the focus on farm-to-table dining and spectacular service. The seasons drive the ever-changing menus, and they consistently strive to showcase produce and proteins supplied by local farmers. They offer a tasteful selection of wines from around the globe and highlight some of our favorite Finger Lake wineries.
As a guest at our Fingerlakes Bed and Breakfast, you’ll only be a quick five-minute walk to a spectacular meal at Hazelnut Kitchen. It’s our favorite restaurant to recommend to those who stay with us, especially for those interested in a romantic dinner for two. Wholesome and nourishing food is something we care a lot about at the Inn at Gothic Eves. We treat all of our guests to a lovely breakfast each morning, full of farm-fresh ingredients, many of which come directly from our garden.

Hazelnut Kitchen: Best Restaurant near our B&B
Hazelnut Kitchen sits directly on the Main Street in Trumansburg, a bright blue building framed by a classic awning and delicate white curtains in the windows. Inside, a warmth from exposed brick and a bustling kitchen line create a welcoming atmosphere for all diners. Thankfully, the restaurants in the Finger Lakes are back to seating indoors, but Hazelnut Kitchen is still offering food for take-out. Some of our guests still prefer to order to go and enjoy back at the privacy of our Inn.
The seasonal menu at Hazelnut Kitchen features ingredients from local farms. We often hear particularly glowing reviews from those who eat vegetarian; you won’t be disappointed with the meatless options here. Order the “Let the Kitchen Decide” menu item at the Hazelnut Kitchen if you’re an adventurous eater. The talented chef will pick from the freshest ingredients on hand and put together a special dish just for that evening.
You’ll want to make a reservation (or allow us to do that for you) as the cozy Hazelnut Kitchen dining room can fill up fast!
