Great food, Great staff, Generally the meeting place in the village. I always have Sunday breakfast when I am in town. All my friends go there and they have the best home made soup all winter long. Deli sandwiches and eggs anyway for breakfast. Just a GREAT place!

Great coffee, breakfasts, sandwiches, organic products, and cafe prior to skiing. A sweet nesting spot for eating prior to Mountain Exploration. Very fresh and nutritious; delicious carrot cake and homemade items; also, a lovely photograph of the Felice Brothers.

This is a nice clean little deli with basics on the main road. We liked getting our sandwiches for our hike. Breakfast was very good.

Visiting Palenville from the UK, we found Circle W to be the beating heart of the village. The food was lovely, the atmosphere warm and friendly and the building very attractive. And knowing the owner is the mother of the Felice Brothers - well, that's the icing on the cake!

Home made baked goods, tables to sit a spell, ice cream on the porch, sandwiches made to order. Patty and her staff are uber-friendly.

This is an unusual place - its in the middle of the Catskills and yet has NYC type of sandwiches. Very tasty and interesting flavors. Definitely try to potato salad - it was delicious. And they have real brewed iced tea. I would definitely come back here if I was ever in the area again. It is worth waiting for... More

We had the in-laws visiting and decided to try somewhere new (to us) for lunch. A friend suggested a couple of places in the Tannersville/Palenville area and the "Circle W" sounded good. It was. The ladies were friendly, the sandwiches and salad were great, and the store has not only a nice "General Store" atmosphere, but they sell an eclectic... More

We have a summer home in Palenville and try to drop into the Circle W at least once per week, frequently more often. The atmosphere is old country store and they feature local products as much as they can. For example, there is a good selection of locally produced maple syrup. When asked Pat will tell you that much of... More
