If you aren't picky about your surroundings (it is a bit shabby) this is the place to go for breakfast when in new Paltz.

Long wait time but worth the food. It does take an hour if you have 4 or more people , but food is delicious and fairly quickly cooked .

The Main Street Bistro is a local staple. They have the best breakfast and lunch in the whole area. This is the number 1 place...period. Get the salmon hash or the Eggs Benedict. You can't go wrong. Best hollandaise sauce in the world.

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.
