“Excellent place for brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We got in here by chance without a reservation on a Saturday morning and the place was packed. The service was exceptional. Our server especially and the staff in general went out of their way for us at every request. The atmosphere of the building is cozy and comfortable. The only thing is the tables close proximity to each other which may not be great for families with children in attendance. Also, the price was very reasonable.
The food was great. You can't do any better for breakfast or brunch. We had the scallops Benedict and the sausage and brie breakfast sandwich. They were both fantastic. Will definitely be back to this wonderful place. Keep it up!

“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

My fiance and I met friends here for dinner while visiting the Hudson Valley. Being vegans, we were looking forward to the vegan shepherd's pie on the menu. None of the entrees come with sides included in the price but there is a short sides menu from which to choose.

My fiance ordered a large salad with lots of delicious looking mixed greens. I ordered the truffle fries after inquiring about how they're made and explaining that I'm vegan. They were brought to me with shaved parmesan cheese for which the waitress apologized and quickly replaced. The fries were very delicious!

My dining companions were pleased with their meals but I was a bit disappointed by the shepherd's pie. It didn't meet my expectations yet it was still tasty.

The service was wonderful and the atmosphere is intimate and tastefully decorated. Be warned, however, it is a very small dining room and the noise can make conversation a bit difficult.

We probably will not return here as it wasn't really a place that knocked our socks off but I'm sure those with more options from which to choose may have a different experience.

This small restaurant had wonderful brunch offerings with very fresh local ingredients and good prices. Dinner menu looked equally good. Highly recommended

I have been there a few times now and I must say the food is always good! I do wish that the place a little bigger. Service is always good too!
