Had the perfect breakfast here. Fixed just right, and healthy, too. Staff was so pleasant and cordial. This place is a true gem.

“Delicious food at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Oh, what a wonderful restaurant! Open for breakfast and lunch, Main Street Bistro is a welcome reminder that good food, cooked right in big portions and priced fairly still exists and thrives, based on the happy crowds who fill it day after day.
There's something for everyone, with vegetarian and vegan dishes served up along with traditional diner type fare.
An added attraction is a nice selection of beers and wines, reasonably priced.
The staff is pierced and tatooed, friendly and keep things moving at a nice pace so the waits never too long, yet somehow they never rush their diners. A fine place!

“home of New Paltz's most famous breakfast special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The $1.99 breakfast special is great on a college student's budget and the food is very good. Staff is rushed but always polite. The place is always crowded and you have to wait a long time for a table which is a huge downside. everyone goes to breakfast with friends on the weekend to 'The Bistro'.

“Always good! Best breakfast in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Most flamboyant menu, most unique dining room, always crowded for breakfast, Main Street Bistro is where I bring all of my guests the first time that they visit. I go at least once a month.
