Located in Historic Medina, New York

Located just off the Four Corners of Medina, NY, the Shirt Factory has been operating as a successful cafe since opening in 2006. In 2018, four Medina natives purchased the business with plans of highlighting the area’s rich history, while helping to excite people about its future.

Over the next couple months Shirt Factory will begin improvements, starting with some cozier seating options, small menu additions, and the addition of some more ties to Medina’s rich history. By late spring-early summer, a transition to expanded hours, a revised menu (including several current favorites), and a cocktail and local wine bar will launch. We ask you all to bear with us, because the next several months are going to be full of excitement.

Prior to being purchased in 2005, the building had created quite the reputation around the world. From Los Angeles, to Washington, DC, to Great Britain, the name Robert H. Newell & Co. was one that leaders and celebrities knew. From 1918-2004, Newell ran his acclaimed shirt factory out of this downtown building. After the business was moved, it opened the door for the next chapter.

If one likes his work, it will become his recreation.
