This is just a downright cool place. A little “beatniky” feel, casual and comfortable, the menu just screams “eat me”! LOL. Everything is tempting, & everything has an interesting “twist”. The meatballs and spaetzle were off the hook! I am told the Reuben is among...More

Wanted to try something new while working in New Paltz for a week. Thought Thursday evening would be a good choice. Food was OK, but we could barely hear each other talk.

Stopped for lunch on a recent drive to Massachusetts. Hubby and youngest son shared some pretzels with cheese sauce to start. We sat outside on a beautiful sunny afternoon and it was warm, but acceptable. If the weather was warmer, it might be too warm...More
