Nickel Creek Cafe will satisfy all your needs
“We have a very friendly atmosphere,” said Nickel Creek Café owner, Chris Wegner. “You like when people come in here and they feel at home and they can feel like that around here.”
Wegner and her husband Mark have owned Nickel Creek Café, 4717 Clinton Street, West Seneca since 2006. Wegner said her husband always wanted to venture into the restaurant-bar business and when he finally had the chance, he didn’t want to pass it up.
‘We were looking into the Cheektowaga area first but this just happened to be for sale at the right time,” she said. “This was a landmark building that’s been standing since 1885. We renovated the whole bar area coming in.”
Nickel Creek Café owners said what sets their business apart from the rest is home cooked food. Everything they make is made from scratch and the business is always offering different specials like the pot roast sandwich.
“It’s pot roast that has been cooked well with veggies,” said Wegner. “It has all these great flavors and then we put it on a Constanzo’s bun and serve it. It’s mouthwatering.”
They also serve chicken sandwiches, wings, fingers, beef on weck and prime rib specials. For the price, the portions are very large; for example a club sandwich could probably feed two people.
The business has a full liquor and beer bar and offers banquets for parties of 50 or less. Birthdays, communions, retirements, rehearsals and everything else can be held at the café. There is also a large patio outside for guests to take advantage of in the warm summer months.
“We mostly do buffet style but if someone requests another server we will do that or family style. We are very flexible and we try to work the party around the people,” said Wegner.
Stability is very important to the business owners and most of their staff has worked at the café since the very beginning. Some cooks, bartenders and the manager have worked in the restaurant since it opened, bringing consistency in their service.
Wegner and her husband also believe in giving back to the community. They are more than happy to give gift certificates out for benefits or charities to help those in need.
“We support other people who have benefits all the time,” said Wegner. “Sometimes we collect money for them and drop it off at their benefit. We also give out of a lot of gift certificates for any benefits people are having. If they come by we will happily give them a certificate for their function.”
Every day of the week the cafe has a different special like “Italian Night” on Tuesdays and “Taco Night” on Wednesdays. Nickle Creek Cafe is open 10:30 a.m. Monday thru Saturday and 11:30 a.m. on Sundays. For more information on what this business has to offer call 656-1112.
