Front of House
The Grange Community Kitchen is located in the historic Hamburg Grange Building at 22 Main St. in the Village of Hamburg. Owners Brad and Caryn have carefully planned the modern restoration of the building to have it look as it did when it was built in 1892. The restaurant includes indoor dining and a full-service bar, as well as an outdoor patio and sidewalk café.
The Grange blends together all of the elements the kitchen team believes in: responsible farming, ingredient-driven cooking, and flavorful food. The restaurant features an open kitchen design that highlights our Mario Acunto wood-burning oven.
The Grange serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Menus change frequently, are inspired by what’s in season and reflect our commitment to utilize goods obtained from local farmers and producers.
