The board room

The Board Room, located at 74 Webster Street, has been open since September 2018.  Popular in large cities, we are proud to have Western New York's first board game cafe right here in downtown North Tonawanda.  The Board Room features a wall of games with over 200 games (for all ages!), puzzles, coffee & soft drinks, homemade baked goods and sandwiches.  Owner Anna Vogel sat down with Lumber City Development Corporation so we could learn more about the business:

drinks,  sandwiches, desserts, dips, and other "game friendly" foods


Q: What are some of your unique offerings or menu items?

Q: Why did you decide to open a board game cafe?

A: I thought the people of Western New York would love it- also it is just a lot of fun


Q: What do you love about downtown North Tonawanda?
