About Us

Naples, long known for its stunning, pastoral scenery and grape-related industries is home for Brown Hound Downtown owners, Trish Aser & Joe Scardilla. The quaint village, population 2500, is seeing a boom in craft beverage, agribusiness, artist & maker studios and recreational excursions. The two saw potential for a new dining concept and in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Trish & Joe closed on their new property, a 150-year-old school house, and began renovations. Opening a year later in summer 2021, Old School Cafe offers a casual, vintage atmosphere with a thoughtful menu focused on coffee, espresso, pastry, and creative, brunchy food. A full bar rounds out the options. Evening offerings coming soon.

Outside of the Brown Hound and the Old School, you’ll find Trish and Joe, their two dogs and two cats snuggled up in their cabin in the woods – hiking, biking, skiing, boating and enjoying everything the Finger Lakes has to offer.
