Good food during the day, spacious and friendly. They do a lot of catering locally, so not really focused on restaurant service. Nice place for a causal lunch or longer coffee without being rushed.

This is the Best Breakfast in New Paltz HANDS DOWN. It can be a little bit of a wait for a table, but worth it!

What a find! Stopped in for a late lunch while shopping in New Paltz. It was 3pm and we still had to wait a bit. But totally worth it. Not big on comfort or ambiance....the chairs were wobbly, table was too small for 4 people and it was really noisy. But..soups were homemade, divine and enough to fill you up,... More

Main course is a great place to get a nice big plate of salad, a roast chicken, etc. Not cheap for a place without table service, but worth the price. Nice room to sit in and a good vibe. Fall in after a full day when you need a fast bite. Lots of healthy options.

From the friendly staff to the awesomeness of the decor to the food, we loved the whole experience!!! My husband got the Zoo Canoe and it was nothing short... More

The bistro is no larger than a studio apartment, with things and paintings all over, creating a rather crowded atmosphere. It is also extremely noisy. The wait, which can at times snake out the door onto Main Street can be long. Ours was 18 minutes, then we ordered breakfast. Another 15 minute wait. The waitstaff is harried, and busy bussing...

My brother took me and wife here. Great breakfast eggs Benedict and omelette were great. Be prepared to wait if you go on a weekend though we went 9:30 on a Sunday morning and had a half hour wait by the time we sat there was a forty five minute wait. Food was great and so was service. Must visit... More

My friend and I decided to try this place on a whim, small little restaurant that was packed at three in the afternoon, I received a pasta and shrimp bowl that was to die for, and my friend had the chili which she loved. I tried her guacamole dip to see, because I have never liked guacamole before, well this... More
