Celebrating its grand opening today, Perfect Pour Café at Point Place Casino features an innovative menu of gourmet coffee, wine, coffee-inspired cocktails, handmade pastries, salads and artisan sandwiches. With the Oneida Indian Nation’s commitment of supporting local businesses, the new café showcases products from other area businesses, including gourmet coffee exclusively from Utica Coffee, wine and spirits, as well as décor sourced from Central New York partners. 

Oneida Indian Nation Homelands (March 22, 2021) – Oneida Indian Nation held a press conference this morning to celebrate the grand opening of Perfect Pour Café, the new coffee house and wine bar at Point Place Casino in Bridgeport. The beautifully designed café features an innovative menu of gourmet coffee, exclusively from Utica Coffee, coffee-inspired cocktails, wines and beers, as well as handmade pastries and artisan sandwiches from the same award-winning culinary team at Turning Stone.

Primed to be the area’s next hotspot, Perfect Pour Café offers the ideal setting for guests to enjoy a gourmet cup of coffee during the day, relax for a mid-afternoon break and indulge with a specialty cocktail in the evening.

“Grand openings are always a special celebration in Central New York, and the opening of Perfect Pour Café means that much more as it signifies the beginning of our collective recovery,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Turning Stone Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “Perfect Pour Café is a unique destination for guests to enjoy some much needed time with friends, while still remaining safe.”

The Oneida Indian Nation remains committed to supporting local businesses, which has been even more critical to the region during this time of recovery.  Perfect Pour Café will feature gourmet coffee from the area’s most beloved coffee brand Utica Coffee, beer, wine and spirits from several local wineries, breweries and distilleries, including Middle Ages Brewing, and handmade sandwiches made fresh daily.

Many of the  design elements  were sourced locally including the elegant white marble and tiles for the main coffee bar from Syracuse-based Roma Tiles and interior and exterior signs created by Canastota-based Victory Signs, with the entire interior design from one of Syracuse’s leading designers Sheila Aggarwal from Zausmer, Frisch, Scruton and Aggarwal. The construction was managed by Syracuse’s Hayner Hoyt Corporation.

Point Place Casino’s new café is a continuation of significant investments made by the Oneida Indian Nation into the property, which recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary. In those three years, Point Place Casino has expanded its gaming floor twice, added The Lounge with Caesars Sports, the extremely popular sports book, and is now opening the new Perfect Pour Café.

The innovative drink and cocktail menu at Perfect Pour Café includes “The Dude from Dublin,” a fresh cold coffee brew with bourbon and topped with cream and “Barista’s Brew,” a fresh cold coffee brew, mixed with Patron XO Café, Frangelico, Disaronno and black walnut bitters and cream. Developed by the same award-winning culinary team at Turning Stone, the food and pastry menu at the new café features salads including Smoked Turkey Cobb, Arugula Cauliflower Rice and Grilled Chicken and an assortment of freshly made sandwiches such as Chimichurri Chicken with spinach, pepper Jack cheese in a wrap, a Cuban with slicked pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles, and a Balsamic Chicken with arugula, mozzarella, on multigrain ciabatta bread.
