My girlfriend and I had hiked on the Hook Mountain/Nyack Beach Bike Trail and afterwards decided to stroll along Main Street in Nyack. There are wonderful shops and boutiques along that roadway. We were both hungry and decided to have a late lunch at the Temptations Cafe. This is a small place that serves an array of dishes and unusual... More

The staff are warm and welcoming. The limited vegan selection was tasty. They serve hummus and a vegan soup.

After our delicious Thai dinner at the "King and I", we had a hankering for some ice cream. While there are several places along Main Street that have fountain service, we picked Temptations because it had a good size crowd, and a nice layout, with the counter in front, and tables along the side and in the back. What sealed... More

Having passed Temptations many times I never thought to dine here since I believed it was just another ice cream place. Wrong. Entering you will see an ice cream counter on the right followed by some tables beyond. The restaurant then opens into a small dining area inside and about 4 tables on the outside patio. Service was friendly, pleasant... More

For years we thought Temptations was an ice cream shop, until someone suggested we try it for dinner. The food is just incredible and the restaurant is owned by the nicest family that treats you like their friend. Chef Jeremy creates the most delicious specials that rotate every two weeks, so there is always something new and different to try.... More

The only thing I have had at Temptations is ice cream. The ice cream is very good an have good choices. Ordering is a little challenging but OK. The entrance is narrow and customers can be three deep at times. Very little inside seating with a couple of seats outside. Generally, people are eating their ice cream while walking or... More

Haven't been to this restaurant in a long time. Very nice cafe with some limited outdoor seating. Food was very fresh, with nice combination of ingredients, and a pleasant presentation. The service was very attentive. The prices were reasonable. Would recommend this establishment, and glad I returned.

Hidden in the back of what looks like an ice cream parlor, are a small number of tables serving great food. They have all the basics you would expect, like salads and burgers etc., but their specials, which change weekly, include great, inventive dishes that would be at home at any high end restaurant at twice the price. There is... More

while the front is ice cream, the restaurant beyond is amazing. The chef knows what he is doing and everything is well prepared from excellent ingredients.
