You can always expect well prepared food made with fresh and healthy ingredients, though you might have to wait awhile to be seated. All baked goods are made on premises. Serves beer and wine.

Get here early to avoid waiting outside. Large menu. About 7 booths and 7 tables and a small counter to eat at. This place packs in many diners. Very good food at affordable rates.

Easy to find but parking is always a problem in New Paltz; excellent service; medium rating of food--some not hot when it should have been. This is a college town, so this spot is almost always busy. Staff very friendly; deciphering the bill was an issue especially as we were trying to split it four ways. I would rate the... More

Luckily we never had to wait on line, mainly because we are such early birds! But I believe it would be worth the wait... the breakfast is awesome! I had the walnut citron french toast and eggs, sausage, etc. SOOO good! The coffee is probably the best coffee I have ever had at a restaurant. The staff is not only... More

I enjoyed the Tomato vegetable soup and my husband had the Huevos Rancheros, on the jalepeno corn bread! Both a home run. Our friends ordered veggie wrap and the special chicken sandwich and both were dellish… fresh and hot, served casual and cozy. Fresh delicious and filling. The service was friendly and considering it was very very busy, we were... More

Stopped here for brunch. Had to wait quite a bit for an open table. Usual sign of a good place to eat. Well it turned out to be a very good flavorful meal. Everyone found their dishes to be tasty and different The Huckleberry Frolic, KiKi's breakfast stir fry and Holy Mole quesadilla. The service was friendly and attentive.

Main Street Bistro has the best breakfast around. Always consistent. They also have pretty good sandwiches. Sometimes the line gets extremely long especially on weekends and when school is in season. Probably worth the wait, although I won't do it. Week days are the best time to go.
