FeelGoods Cafe / EdgyBurger
412 North Country Road
Saint James, NY 11780


One of FeelGoods Cafe's most unique and exciting menu offerings are the EdgyBurgers: the Veggie Burgers with an Edge. Four years ago, they started with two basic burgers, the "Two Bean & Corn" and the "Classic Falafel". Then they experienced "BurgerMania," a period of time when they took every flavor combination imaginable and put it in burger form. Eventually, they whittled it down to about fifteen. Customers make meals with them and also buy them in bulk.
