The Chautauqua Cafe

COMING SPRING 2022!

As part of our effort to further historic preservation at Chautauqua, we are currently reconstructing an outdoor pavilion between the Dining Hall and the General Store. The pavilion, known as the “Chautauqua Cafe,” was built in the late 1800’s and will be reconstructed using historic photos. Once completed, guests and visitors can grab a coffee, sandwich, salad or ice cream from the adjoining General Store and enjoy this open-air seating area year-round. The Cafe will also be available for a limited number of private events.
