My Clarence Center Hotspots



Clarence Center is a charming town that will captivate your heart!


Gertie’s Restaurant captured my attention because Gertie was my grandma’s name. I have many memories of enjoying grandma’s delicious homemade food. Gertie’s is Clarence’s finest scratch kitchen where you can find a gourmet experience. While there, try some of these appetizers like Hun-GARY-ian Peppers that are stuffed with Gary’s seven-cheese blend served with a baguette or Naples meatballs with red sauce and Naples-style ricotta.


Toss around a Chèvre Beet Salad with its mixed greens, roasted beets, goat cheese, and house vinaigrette with balsamic reduction. You can’t beat it! Gertie’s diverse main dishes include a variety of poultry, pork, pasta, beef, burgers, and seafood. Pair any dish with a selection from their incredible wine list. Enjoy the ambiance!


Those with a sweet tooth should save room for dessert or make a stop at Dawn’s Candy Shack. You could also “pop” over to Papa’s Popcorn for a gourmet popcorn treat.

Looking for something freshly brewed? Head over to Clarence Center Coffee Co. & Café located in the heart of Clarence Center. A relaxing experience, this coffee shop is like a mini vacation with bohemian-style décor and friendly baristas. Satisfy your palate with decadent coffee, tea, imported beer, wine, fresh salads, hot soups, grilled paninis, and delicious wraps.


As you stroll through town, notice the history highlights on the lamppost banners as well as historic homes and landmarks, such as the 1872 Eshelman Building and the Birch Lawn House.


The place to shop is The Perfect Gift store. Fall and holiday shipments recently arrived. You are sure to find many treasures here.


Make time to pamper yourself at The W Spa. They have serviced Clarence, Amherst, and Western New York for over fifteen years.


Clarence Center has plenty to offer whatever your taste with dining options and more. Dine, dance, shop, and explore!
