Come check us out!

Renovations are coming along at the new Black Waters Cafe & Trading Post 😊 More to come in April!


It’s all about change… a small business has to morph with the times if they hope to survive in New York State these days. We don’t want to be the next business to close since there have already been too many in our small area! But that means changing, and focusing on what we can save on… money, utilities, cost of goods, wages, time, & especially our health as we approach our 60s.
So the Pine Cone is morphing into a new attitude, new look, healthier menu, more environmentally conscious practices, worker-friendly hours……. and even a new name!
Black Waters Cafe & Trading Post will be Wanakena’s new place for hikers, paddlers, campers, sledders, tourists and residents to gather, eat, sip & shop. So far, we’ve been working hard on the interior facelift – and spring will bring even more surprises!
Black Waters winter hours will be: Wednesday through Sunday 8am – 3pm with an all-day cafe menu as well as grab-and-go breads, sweet treats & snacks. AND – beginning January 16th, Black Waters will feature Throw-Back Thursdays “Wing Night” 6-10pm. (Wings, boneless wings, fries, chips, curds, cheese & pepperoni pizza).
Need spoilers? How about our homemade corned beef hash, salmon & eggs benedict, biscotti & scones with lemon curd, egg-white quiche cups, white chocolate hot cocoa, a great selection of loose teas, gluten free wraps, Jeff’s soups & white chicken chili, pies, chocolate chia seed pudding, falafels & cream… and much, much more! (including the favorite wines, liquors and beers of course!)
We hope you’ll embrace our changes as we continue to fight against being a small business casualty – and we look forward to serving you soon!

new banner & website will be up today – we’re still tweaking our projects, but ready for the curious to visit 😊
ps… The motel end of the property is for sale – residential or commercial usage. Selling this prime section of waterfront will help cement us being able to maintain our business on Cranberry Lake – and will make someone a great home or business opportunity! (Will share listing soon – need a couple of corrections to the listing)
