It's a real treat to be able to choose the ingredients you want in your salad, especially when everything is fresh and delicious after you get it. And the salads are inexpensive for the quality and quantity. Other offerings appear equally delicious. I've taken to...More

Very fine preparation of good food. I like the vegetable assortments and salads best. You order at the counter and pick it up yourself. Best place I have eaten in New Paltz.

Please excuse this delayed response! Yes! There are surely gluten free options on the menu...including a flourless chocolate torte (it you have room left for dessert!).
