Samantha’s Cafe at Union Square

(518) 792-5839
Open 8-2pm, Catering by appointment.

An eclectic blend of comfort food and bistro fare in the heart of downtown Glens Falls, Samantha’s offers diners an experience each of their senses will remember fondly. Made from scratch breads, soups, and entrees are created on-site, and change daily. Samantha’s also specializes in event catering and will work with you to create the perfect menu for your special occasion.

For nearly three decades, Samantha’s has held the premier position among local caterers, sought by clients who expect creative food service and scrupulous attention to detail.

After 28 years of creativity in the kitchen, cafe founder, Carole Newell, has recently taken her well-deserved retirement (Fall 2011). Liz Wilcox and Jennifer Kraft invite you to rediscover the new Samantha’s. Expect to find many of your old favorites (like turkeyberry, mac ‘n cheese, squash apple bisque) as well as new menu items including vegetarian and gluten free options.

Bring out the foodie in your friends and family. Give your guests a unique experience that reflects who you are as a couple. Our wedding menus are fully customized and can include many vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. We will travel to your location in Glens Falls, Saratoga, Lake George, Schroon Lake, Queensbury, Diamond Point, Bolton Landing, Chestertown, and the northern Adirondacks. Featured venue: Top of the World Golf Resort, Lake George

A specialty at Samantha’s is the corporate luncheon. Whether you want elegant box lunches that make for ease in a meeting environment or a hot buffet of gourmet choices, we deliver, on time, every time. Local businesses respect our commitment to excellent quality food and punctual delivery, which is why our phone rings on a continual basis. We appreciate the opportunity to serve the business community.

“Hidden Gem. Had lunch at Samantha’s Cafe today. Never think to go there because it’s tucked away in the Union Square building, but I will make a conscious effort to go there more often. Had the Shepherd’s Pie topped with garlic mashed. Really good. The space is eclectic and comfortable. The service is good and the food is great. Make the effort to go, you won’t be sorry.” – KJC, South Glens Falls, NY (Trip Advisor, 10/15/14)

“Delicious Lunch, Great Service! I have to be honest, we were not expecting a lot when we went in, but we left beyond satisfied and happy. The food here is fresh, real and so flavorful. Everything is made in-house and you can tell. The roast turkey is so robust and full or flavor. We had great soups, sandwiches, salads and mac and cheese. We would return in a heartbeat!” – Kristin B., Saratoga Springs, NY (Trip Advisor, 10/10/14)
