“This should be in every town.”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

With a cast of local characters not to be missed, this place puts out more custom meals than can be imagined! From meat eaters to vegans to Gluten free diners, no one is left out. Prices are more than reasonable (breakfast starts at 1.97!) And the food combinations available are only held back by your own imagination. (Lately, my go to has been brocolli, spinach, hummus, avocado, and more over homefries with salsa.) Burritos? Check. Eggs Benedict, pancakes? Ck. Fresh squeezed juice? Ck. Burgers, Salmon, veggie burgers, chili, tuna melt? Yup! Organic eggs are available as well as Gluten free bread. Service is fast and efficient. Coffee needs a little upgrade. People watching is terrific due to the diverse clientele. On the weekends, expect a wait... But it is worth it!

“Great Menu With Many Gluten Free Options”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This is a fun place to grab breakfast or brunch in New Paltz. Be prepared for a long wait and a very disorganized waiting process. Wait staff were friendly and food was delicious and came out quickly.

“Best breakfast in the Hudson Valley.. best in the world!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

'The Bistro' as it is known to us locals, is the heart and soul of this unique and endearingly quirky college town, just 90 mins from NYC. This has been our favorite breakfast spot, in the world, for over 30 years, and it just happens to be in our own town! Many of the excellent staff that run the place have been there for all that time but they appear to never age. It is run with a warm and friendly efficiency and the food is interesting, well prepared, comforting and excellent value. The coffee is really good, something seldom one can say about a place, the home fries are the best we have ever had, and the breakfast special is an absolute bargain.

“Fantastic Breakfast”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

I had the eggs benedict and a side order of turkey sausage, two mornings in a row. One of the best breakfasts I've had. Also ate there for lunch on day. Not as impressive as breakfast, but still good.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

This is a very trendy place in a college town. The breakfast crowd is huge with a line out the door by 9:00 a.m. There is always a blackboard full of breakfast specials.
