Penny Lane Cafe delights with artsy decor, tasty food!

Tucked away in Clarence, Penny Lane Cafe is an artsy establishment displaying quirky decor and serving tasty grub on a budget.

An outdoor seating area has unusual embellishments like tiki umbrellas, statues, bottle cap tables and chairs, hula hoops, and other not-so-basic furniture.

WGRZ Unique Eats Dines at Penny Lane Cafe!

CLARENCE, N.Y. – There, beneath the blue suburban skies of Clarence’s Main Street, sits a little restaurant that makes a big impression the moment you step inside.

Penny Lane Cafe opened in July of 2015 as the creation of Anne Vably, an artist whose eccentric and beautiful decor stretches from the light-strung ceiling to the piece-by-piece beaded bar. Her daughter, Angel, manages the cafe.

“Every little piece of this place you see is a little bit of my mom,” Angel says. “It’s her in restaurant form, which is really a beautiful thing, and I’m just happy everyone gets to experience it.”

Diners could probably stay occupied with a game of “I Spy” inside the bar for hours. And after peeking inside at the decor, diners can also enjoy meals at the expansive courtyard just outside the entrance. It’s a venture that has grown a lot in just over a year. ….. (WATCH VIDEO)

Fresh food, family atmosphere at Penny Lane Café

Clarence got a little groovier this month with the opening of Penny Lane Café.

Located at 10255 Main St., the café is the brainchild of neighboring Van Gogh on the Rocks painting studio owner Anne Valby. She said she wanted to open the café because it filled a noticeable void in the plaza where her art studio is located.

“I have my art studio next door, and we were sitting outside in the courtyard,” Valby said. “I always wanted my own restaurant or café, and there was nothing here, and I thought this was perfect. There is nothing around here like this — especially for sitting outdoors — that’s not in a parking lot.”… (READ MORE)
