  • f


I'm planning a 3 night trip with my husband to Niagara Falls next month. Is there anything kosher in the area?

      sorry there is no longer any kosher facility in the area. however Martin's a very large supermarket on maple drive in amherst has an extensive kosher deli.Carrying both fresh and frozen items it's glat kosher.

      1. There is a full array of options for weekday and shabbat meals and services offered by Chabad Lubavitch of Niagara Falls.

        There is also a new Kosher Pizza Shop which just opened under the supervision of the Lubavitch Shliach.

        Check out www.chabadniagara.com

        1. Perfect timing as I am also planning a trip there! I will update you when I return.

            Unfortunately, the Chabadniks seem to cater meals when it suits them. We tried to order on two consecutive nights. The first we were told, no, can't do it, too many orders. (We ordered at 9 am the previous day.) The second day, we left a message on the answering machine. When we called that afternoon to confirm, they said sorry, can't do it, we have to go out of town.

            There is also a pizza shop and bakery in Niagara Falls now. It was dirty, crowded, and the food was mediocre -- and I mean mediocre -- but it's only been open a month and the owner seems nice, caring and completely overwhelmed. Things may get better. It's under the Buffalo Va'ad.

              The food at the pizza store is ok, but bear in mind- they do not take credit cards, so bring cash. Also, it's quite expensive, so $20 won't get you too far.

          2. I was just at the pizza store. It was not dirty, and the staff was great--they even made you items off the menu. The food was fresh, but very bland, and there's not much variety if you are going to be there more than one day.

            1. There was a kosher Krispy Kreme in Buffalo when I passed through about a year ago...

                It may not be very convenient, but the Tops Friendly Market in Amherst (Buffalo suburb) on Maple East of Niagara Falls Boulevard used to have a kosher deli counter with Empire cold cuts, etc, We used to bring them back to Toronto when we went shopping in Buffalo.

                  Does anyone know if Mendys is open yet? I called the number there was no answer.

              2. According to the message, they will be opening on July 4th and will be open from 9 AM to 10 PM. Shabbos meals are still being arranged through the Chabad House directly and require phone reservations. The restaurant is also under the hashgacha of R' Zaltzman and the Buffalo Va'ad.

                    We just returned from Niagra Falls and we can happily report that there are now
                    three options to choose from around the Falls: King David Pizza, Mendy's ( meat) and
                    a hot dog stand. We ate at all three and had no problems with choices. It enhanced our stay.

                      Can you tell me where King Davis Pizza is located and the Hot dog stand??

                        King David is closed for good.

                          A couple of weeks ago, the hot dog stand was right near the entrance to Maid of the Mist on the Canada side. Best to call and make sure they are there all the time. It was a nice (but expensive) surprise.
