Lovely restaurant run by lovely people. The food is earthy, interesting, and delicious; The staff and owners are smart and super friendly. And the garden shop, en plein air vibe always feels good, even in torrential late summer rains. Thanks for a lovely dinner! See you next season.

Origins is the most delightful place! And besides being cozy and fun to sit among the hanging plants and tropical trees, the food is delicious! It makes a lunch or dinner a memorable occasion.

Whenever I visit my parents in Cooperstown, I make sure to make a reservation and take them here! The atmosphere and service is an experience in itself, but the food is unreal. I wish I could go here every week!

A spontaneous evening where a reservation I made for just me, grew to 8 people when I went to a social gathering for people to meet the new conductor of the Catskill Symphony Orchestra, and he and a bunch of old and new friends joined for dinner. Origins Cafe graciously accommodated everyone without advance reservations and we had a magical evening together over delicious food and drink.

First time here and it was unique eating in a hot house surrounded by nature, soft classical live music. A lot of locals on community night and it was refreshing to see community members come together.

Food was excellent, fresh and organic. Their lavender lemonade is to die for! The staff was pleasant and you never had to ask for anything, they were right on the dime with service. I wish we lived closer, would make this a regular go to dining experience!

We enjoyed a dinning experience.
On a Sept, rainy day in upstate NY.
A little bit of the outdoors comes inside.
Food is fresh and interesting.
The blue tea refreshing.
Delightful service.
Best to make a reservation.

Food and service were great. The setting is a little rustic. You're semi-outside. But that is what the place is about. Also we were seated near the band, so it was a little loud at times. Even with those minor issues, the experience was great.

The grounds of this restaurant were unique. It rained the night we were there but the awning kept everyone dry and comfortable. Food was eclectic and I loved the shredded edible flowers that added color to my meal. We had meatloaf which was juicy and better than most restaurants, soba noodles very tasty and eggplant Parmesan, that was off the normal presentation but still good. Carrot Cake a must!

What a unique experience. We came on what ended up being a concert night. Warning though if this is case food is served buffet style and ended before our reservation at 745 for dinner was. We were able to get some food fortunately but ended up not being a dinner. The ambiance and just fun vibe of this place made up for it. Can't wait to try a regular dinning service night, wish they mentioned there'd be no regular dinner service for the time we booked but 100% going back.

The place is in an active greenhouse. Very nice. The food was excellent and not over priced. The live music was especially good and at the right volume so we could still talk during dinner. I would recommend this place.
