Great Lunch

What a busy little café. My wife & I had lunch on Saturday and really enjoyed it. The restaurant was crowded with people waiting for a table. The atmosphere was cozy and the food & service were both good. We would definitely return.

Unbelievably affordable for excellent food. Preparation is impeccable and since you bus your own table, prices are well maintained. Dining area is very clean and staff is attentive. Sad to see people come and order a coffee and leach the wifi.

This is a popular place. We were lucky to get a table without a long wait. We shared a veggie burger special and sweet potato fries.(there is a small sharing charge) it was very good. I've enjoyed their soups and a slab of bread many times.

Quaint place, a bit small inside. Excellent and fresh food! Long wait for a table {busy place}. A very small bathroom {only one stall}. If you like avocado, check this place out!

We went there with friends based on the reviews and line to get in. We found the place original, perfect for a brunch, but not great. The food is ok compared to the price but nothing exciting. I wouldn't go there another time if i was in the area and would try another place.

I've lived in NP for over 10 years and I love everything about the bistro except for the quality of the food. It's a long wait for slightly better than diner food. The staff is great, love the location, and the coffee and all drinks for that matter are delicious. I just wish they would keep up with the times... More

Having lived in New Paltz for nearly forty years, we thought we would give it a try for a late lunch. We were able to be seated without a wait, which I understand is rare. We decided to order breakfast, which is served all day. The staff was friendly and fast. We had something akin to huevos rancheros, but I... More

This is obviously a very popular place given the lack of breakfast/brunch options in New Paltz. When we visited on Saturday, the wait was about 30 minutes for a table and the place is not all that small. When we were finally seated, it took a while to go over the menu which is quite large. It has all the... More

Eclectic menu with options for every palette, made fresh and tasty every time. Vegetarian and vegan choices are just as good as any others, and all served with a smile and friendly manner. The cooks work hard to give you a great meal. Don't miss breakfast at the Bistro when you're in New Paltz!

One of my favorite restaurants in New Paltz. If we aren't sure where to go eat, this is always a good choice. Nice and casual, friendly service. Big menu with lots of vegetarian choices. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.
