I haven't been to the Tearoom in a while and was disappointed to find the outside of the building in need of a good paint job, plants growing in the roof gutters, upkeep of the deck lacking, etc. . Since it was a nice day, I chose to eat outside. It would helpful if tables were cleaned quickly after a... More

What a lovely quaint restaurant. There is some seating inside, with the majority available on the outside deck. This restaurant is located inside a nearly 200 yr old building. The history of the location fits well with the back to the farm selections on the menu. They locally source vegetables and meat. The honey cake is one of their specialties... More

I enjoyed my meal thoroughly as did the rest of my group. We had the pot pie the BLT special, the gravalax sandwich and goat cheese sandwich and bean soup combo. Everything was delightful, actually really tasty. But the cost for each was about $5 more than it should have been.

I love going there for lunch; delicious soups and sandwiches with a pot of hot tea. Dinner is also wonderful, especially the fish pie on certain days. Service is excellent. Atmosphere homey and friendly. Yummy desserts. We've been going to the Tearoom for years; quality remains high.

A dinner meeting with friend; selected the braise beef special paired with a local red wine and a vegetarian pasta entree. Both were excellent. For desert (they are a bakery, too) we had eclairs which were beyond decadent. It's a bit of close quarters inside, but if you've ever dined in Manhattan you'll understand. There is also outdoor seating.

We have had lunch here several times and will go back. If you're a Vegan or gluten-free person you will be in heaven. We are neither but enjoy their unusual menu. Soup of the the day (interesting cream of celery today) with half sandwich (I had gravlax with cream cheese and cucumber on great crusty bread) is a great $13... More

Quaint and simple. But try the lemon pie - delish with real lemon pieces in it and wonderful pie crust

We all know you can't control the loudness of other patrons, but when the proprietor herself is loudly discussing catering details with the only other party in the room, we did not enjoy our otherwise tasty dinner. She was giving them excruciating details about every dish so loudly we really couldn't have a conversation. She seemed to have no awareness... More

We visited the Village Tea Room last weekend. It is a quaint restaurant built within a lovely old New Paltz house. To get to the restaurant you walk on a gravel path from Plattekill Ave or you may use their parking lot (which has limited parking). I would suggest parking in the Municipal Lot across the street or use "on... More

Just made a trip to the Village Tea Room, first time visit... Food was above average (organic, epicurean type stuff), staff was attentive, though one nice aspect setting it apart was the small second floor dining room... Only room for 12 or so which makes it ideal for small crowds and a very personal atmosphere

Thank Craig W
