After a full day of hiking in the Catskills, I stopped here to pick up a sandwich for dinner. This old-timey, clean and comfortable general store is conveniently located on the scenic Kaaterskill Clove highway, so I swung in before they closed for the day...More

Stopped in for lunch while passing through town and had an excellent Chicken Salad Sandwich. The dressing was made with freshly picked ingredients and was perfect for what we were looking for. There are some tables inside to enjoy for meal.

Country store with exceptional sandwiches. Only thing that should be included is side like potato salad or macaroni salad. Homemade desserts.

A nice warm intimate space to purchase healthy basics and products along with show cased local artist's work for sale and an adorable section of vintage toys. Amazing coffee, friendly staff, and delicious fresh food. Too bad 5 is the highest rating

... and for lots of stuff you didn't know you needed. The range of "natural" candies is impressive. Friendly staff, good cleanliness, lots of local people and tourists, especially hikers.

The Circle W not only has a good selection of goods on the shelves, but also offers delicious sandwiches and baked goods. I'm gluten free, so was thrilled to know I could get my sandwich on gluten free bread (which was delicious). Alas, the fresh...More
