“Great food & speedy service”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

We liked the Bistro so much, we came back for breakfast 2 days in a row! Saturday a.m. the line snaked out the door, but moved fast, & we were seated within 15-20 minutes. We both got frittatas--delicious. My coffee cup was always refilled before 1/2 empty. Even though it was busy, we didn't feel rushed. Monday a.m. was much less crowded; still excellent service & tasty breakfast. If I'm back in New Paltz, I will definitely head to the Bistro for breakfast!

“good spot for breakfast in New Paltz...”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

It is a hipster style diner, all time crowded with college students. Despite their style and look actually the food is great. I would strongly recommend to stop by and check their menu if you don't mind waiting in line for a few minutes when they are arranging a table for you. Try to avoid brunch hours at a weekend, especially during college season.

“Great Food - Not sure how clean.”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

We have been here many times. We question the cleanliness of the place. Usually we have to ask the table to be wiped off. Wait Staff does not seem to follow much procedure when it comes to cleanliness. But, WOW, the food is great. Out of the norm when it comes to the menu. Would have given it 5 star 'Excellent' if the place and staff was cleaner.

“Delicious, carefully prepared food, great service and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

I have had breakfast here twice. Everything is fresh and creatively prepared. The staff is friendly and keep your coffee cup filled. It is a local place filled with happy people eating delicious food. I had cranberry almond pancakes with real maple syrup, my husband had veggie eggs benedict. Both delicious. Great fresh fruit cup. Many veggie options available. I wish I lived closer, it is a fav stop on a NY\ Boston trip!
