2008-07-22 11:54:00   I've taken out lunch from here a couple times, and it was really good (and fast.) I got the French dip, which is served on buttery toasted sourdough and comes with homemade chips and garnish salad (some sort of pasta thing.) They use "Al Cohen's famous breads." I'm not sure who Al is or if his breads are really famous, but they're definitely tasty. There are tons of different sandwiches and other stuff on the menu, so if you want an office event catered, you'll probably be able to make everyone happy. —RachelBlumenthal

2009-09-11 12:03:58   Went here today with some co-workers for lunch. They have great sandwiches and it's the best option I have found in downtown Rochester. Some things are better "deals" that other things. Today I got grilled cheese on sourdough and it was huge but my co-workers on wheat was very small. All sandwiches come with homemade chips and a garnish salad - I really love their ramen noodle salad that they give! —goldengirl217

Retail purchases can be made at Wegmans, and numerous supermarkets, and wholesale orders can be placed through Mid State distributors, Will Poultry, and Mapleleaf foods. We also have an excellent pizza dough... you might be surprised to find your favorite pizza place is serving Al Cohen's Dough made to their specifications! Thanks for the compliments! —KellyDiDomenico

2010-08-05 14:02:16   Ive been a customer of cravings since day one it opened. Over the years the menu and restaurant alone have grown to become one of the best destinations in downtown Rochester to get breakfast or lunch. They recently expanded there sub industry with there new french bread rolls. Ive been ordering a sub to eat for lunch then one to go for my dinner. You can tell that Mikie and Rex (owners) really care about there customers and want to make there experience the best as possible. I remember one day a customer said that soda cans get much colder and are cheaper than bottles of soda and what do you know, they are serving soda cans now. This is a wonderful restaurant that if your in the area of main street or even downtown Rochester (they deliver too!) to try and order from cravings. You'll soon fall in love with the food as everyone else has. —MichealThomas

I knew when the girl dropped off the food I knew that it was wrong. I expressed my disconnect to the girl, but told her it was not her fault, tipped her and everything. We went to order there last week, and I am now banned from ordering. Just a word from the wise, if you order from there, and like the food, do plan on sticking up for yourself if something is wrong. You'll never get their food again. —KRBURKE
