Roomy, airy and woody atmosphere. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was fresh, tasty and boasted generous portions. If not dieting, try the loaded potato skins. Wow holy cheesy!

This place is my favorite! Just be prepared for a wait to be seated on the weekends. Their specials and hashbrown skillets are always delicious. And they actually have great coffee.

Stopped into this little cafe for a good breakfast. Enjoyed the salmon hash with poached eggs, potatoes and toast. Papas Frittata Skillet - scrambled eggs with home fries, veggies and cheese was also very good. Coffee was hot and fresh. Friendly service too.

You can always expect well prepared food made with fresh and healthy ingredients, though you might have to wait awhile to be seated. All baked goods are made on premises. Serves beer and wine.

Get here early to avoid waiting outside. Large menu. About 7 booths and 7 tables and a small counter to eat at. This place packs in many diners. Very good food at affordable rates.

It's metered street parking. Depending on tourists (either SUNT New Paltz families or autumn pumpkin and apple shoppers), it can be difficult or relatively easy. Weekdays tend to be better for street parking.
