“worst ever. shame on them.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

I've read some of these positive reviews and all I can say is - you guys must be desperate for any kind of sustenance in Garrison. I stopped in today after a long hike and ordered a kale salad with chicken. The kale was gritty with dirt, the ten or twelve strips of torn chicken breast had some kind of strange coating on it, and the dressing was mayo with stuff??? in it. Because the kale was obviously not washed, I got a bit sick, nothing terrible, but I've had cleaner food in third world countries. Shame on you, Garrison Cafe. Take some pride in your product! Or at least take a class in basic food hygiene. Also - I never post critiques but this warranted one. Truly awful.

“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

New owners at Garrison Cafe have raised the bar for delicious food in a family-friendly atmosphere. Warm and welcoming, the food is excellent with a menu that ranges from French toast and pastries to brick-oven pizza and gourmet kale salads--or, if you prefer, a good old-fashioned hamburger. Don't forget to save room for dessert--the cupcakes are some of the best ever. It's always a treat to happen-onto a place like this when traveling. I know my experience there will enhance my memories of visiting the Hudson River Valley.

“What a lucky find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Found this on the internet while staying at the Garrison Inn which does not serve breakfast. They did not seem to know about this place. What a shame. After finding it we came back every day for breakfast. Wonderful croissants, muffins and other pastries as well as full breakfasts which included eggs, pancakes and waffles. Very good coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice. Order at the counter and then wait at very small tables and they will bring you your order. The staff was friendly and helpful. The owner is from France so you know the croissants are going to be good.

“Good location between Boscobel and Manitoga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This cafe is ideal if you're doing the sights east of the Hudson across from West Point in the Garrison area. We had checked Tripadvisor for restaurants between Boscobel and Manitoga and the Garrison Cafe did not come up for some reason. So it was an unexpected find on our drive. It's very small, with tiny tables inside and outside facing road. No real ambiance, order at counter and they drop food to your table when ready. My salmon burger was delicious but did take a long time to make. Husband's turkey and brie sandwich also very good and quicker. Sandwiches filled us up so no room for all the ice cream and pastries on display--hard to resist!
