Awesome find in Palenville

Although unassuming from the outside, come in and enjoy tasty food at the Circle W. We had breakfast here 4 times and loved every visit. They also serve lunch and sell a variety of gourmet items including many international products. The staff provide wonderful and friendly service so you feel like... read more

I can only imagine what this place is like on a Saturday. They were extremely busy. The food was fresh and good. I would suggest if you are one that likes your bread not toasted you let them know before hand.

Our family eats here regularly. The food is wonderfully fresh and very local. We travel through area for local hiking and in winter for skiing.

Circle W was recommended as a lunch and breakfast spot by the owners of the cottage where we stayed. I am glad I followed their advice. We loved the sandwiches and the atmosphere so much we actually stopped in twice on a long weekend trip to the Catskills. I encourage you to go for lunch on the first day of... More

Clean, friendly, a little slow because every order receives special attention. Nice collection of food 'stuff' on the shelves. Seems oriented to the discerning eater who prefers better quality than fast food.

Wow! We were recommended to come here by our motel hostess for breakfast and were blown away. My husband travels to the us regularly and said this was the best bacon eggs he's had in America. I had granola which was delicious, my daughters had asparagus n goats cheese quiche and strawberry jam on cinnamon toast. Highly recommended.

My wife and I spent two days hiking in the Catskills (from North-South Lake park). We stayed at a lovely B&B in Palenville (The Clark House). The Circle W General Store is a short walk down the road from the Clark House. The lunch sandwiches were excellent and interesting (in a good way)! The store was very clean and stocked... More

Its worth a stop for great daily soups and many tasty lunch sandwiches. Lots of local color, a great selection of healthy foods, a cute book shop and always delicious food.

I meet a good friend of mine here every couple of months for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The atmosphere is quaint... friendly... local. The coffee is hot and strong and the quiche is so yummy!!!
