Had a solid breakfast here. Service was friendly but little mixed. Coffee/juice order never arrived so new waiter got on it. Long wait for food, place is busy, but basically a standard college town diner.

Fantastic cranberry short stack (almost too big eat) with local Maple Syrup. Eggs, hash browns, and sausage were excellent and we couldn't believe how quick it got to the table. At 9:30 am on a Sunday morning, there was a line out the door. Loved it!!!

Went here for breakfast and loved it! The food was good and so was the service. It has a great location (located right in New Paltz).

Great place to come for breakfast and lunch. Very varied menu. They make their own bread including gluten free. Awesome. Worth the wait to get in. They have a big selection of vegetarian items. The omelettes are a favorite of mine. They have soups, salads and large variety of sandwiches. Casual and reasonably priced.

Four of us went for lunch, and we all loved our selections. Burritos, sandwiches. Prices are also very fair for the location. But the place is so inefficient. First, we had to wait to be seated, even though at least 3 tables were empty and clean. Then we had to wait to order quite a while. There seemed to be... More

All homemade, crowded, casual. The breakfasts are creative and delicious. Most weekends, especially in the Fall, there is a line out the door and diners inside are in no particular hurry to make way for newcomers. The service is good and the atmosphere lively. Don't miss this one.

Great food it was unbelievable but be prepared to wait everybody knows the place is great. Four is about the largest group I would bring there. Some people were bringing in 7 and 11 and it is just not ment for that size groups. Alone or a couple you can sit at the bar and speed up the wait time.... More
