Fera's on Franklin moving to Rand Building

Fera’s on Franklin, a downtown breakfast and lunch staple for more than 25 years, is moving.

The restaurant will move to the Rand Building, 14 Lafayette Square, next month, said owner Peter Boncore. After it closes for business on Feb. 3 at its current 168 Franklin St. address, it will reopen in the new spot on Feb. 6.

The new place will be in the lobby of the building, so customers will use the lobby entrance to enter the restaurant, Boncore said.

The Fera's on Franklin menu of breakfast sandwiches and subs, soups and salads will remain unchanged, he said. New offerings at the Rand Building location will include espresso, and eventually a buffet. A beer and wine license is also under way.

His Fera’s is one of three independently owned in Buffalo, Boncore said. Fera’s Lunch Hour, 93 Pearl St., and Fera’s Electric Tower Café, 535 Washington St., are not affected.

The original Fera’s opened on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst, in 1960. The Pearl Street location, opened 30 years ago, Boncore said, was the first Fera’s in Buffalo.
