“Groovy atmosphere, GREAT coffee!”

CAFEteria at New Paltz
Ranked #3 of 5 Coffee & Tea in New Paltz
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 July 2015

A hipster coffeeshop/guitar shop that has an aura of the funky old building it occupies. I had a large latte that was so good that it made me sad to finish it! My wife's iced decaf latte was equally delicious. The prices were a downright bargain compared to the big chain. This will be our coffee stop whenever we are in New Paltz. Starbucks can close up shop right now -- there is no comparison.

Walked in and saw lots of period couches, chairs and tables to rest ourselves. Lots of 60s atmosphere with artwork and style. The menu makes it a must place to stop for a relaxing break or even a good place to meet up.

A small stage in the corner and a bunch of couches strategically positioned around a warehouse-like room. The stage is open to local musicians who want to share the love.

Had lattes here a few times and really liked it. The staff are very nice and the place is a mix between guitar shop and cafe. Recommended as a local favorite of climbers and the college crowd. Friendly to all!

In a town that still wears tie-dye, paints the heads of the parking meters mellow lilac, and brags it is vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, free-range, & organically grown, this place is perfect. The vibe is mellow, the coffee is good, but when I was there the snacks were limited.
Store front window seating offers a view of the town's main street and an experience from the '70s. (Yes, I was there) The other store window is a rather quiet guitar shop, but when a guy in jeans and a t-shirt strummed a few cords and I had the Groovy Blueberry store in my sights and coffee in my hands...oh yeah - 70's with wifi.
