On the recommendation of friends we tried calico. We always thought it was just a cafe and dessert place. No, it is a wonderful restaurant that also has great desserts. Dinner was really delectable and the food was served piping hot. Service was very good and they had the most pleasant young girl bussing tables. A spot that we will return to again and again.

In a small town with many fine restaurants, my family continues to prefer Calico. All of the meals and deserts are entirely prepared by the married owners--he makes all of the soups, appetizers and entrees, and she makes all of the fantastic deserts (we usually will take one or two extra deserts home). The cozy bistro atmosphere, and the very responsive and attentive waitstaff, adds to the charm. They also have monthly wine dinners, that are very popular. It's a great place for everything from simply having coffee and a pastry, to lunch, to dinner, to very special occasion.

Calico is my favorite place to have a nice meal and perfect dessert. From the moment you walk in you are taken care of with respect and enthusiasm. The place is quite small which is a plus because the owners and staff can lavash you with attention in the form of top quality food and service. Quality is never compromised, the food is comes out perfect every time. I especially look forward to having dessert as there is no better dessert anywhere. This is the place for you if you like fresh food prepared right and amazing desserts.

Consistently the best place in town! Food is elegantly prepared and presented, many local products used. All desserts are made in house, and should not be missed.

What an amazing find! We discovered this tiny little jewel tucked away in scenic Rhinebeck N.Y. We live in the area and had probably overlooked it several times. It only has 7 or 8 tables but that doesn't stop Calico from delivering big things. The fish dishes are always amazing and flavorful. Everything from the soups through dessert was fresh and delicious each time we went. I was astonished at the wine selection given the small size of the restaurant. The staff is always friendly and the owner/pastry chef is a delight to talk to as she makes her way around the restaurant.
