“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Hyde Park is best know for FDR's home, the Vanderbilt estate , Valkill home of Eleanor Roosevelt and the. Culinary. Institute of America. This little cafe is a hidden gem! The food is all prepared by the owner who is a warm and welcoming hostess. In fact all of her staff makes you feel as though you are having a meal in your very own home. Besides the warmth of this place, you will truly treat yourself to a delicious and very reasonably priced meal. Yesterday my friend and I shared a portion of their sweet potato fries. They were delicious. The full flavor of the sweet potatoes were revealed because of the way they are prepared. I also loved her cole slaw . The menu includes many different types of sandwiches and wraps as well as fried pickles And spring rolls. They have recently began to serve breakfast and it seems as the community is loving it because the parking lot is always filled. This cafe is just a about 3 minutes north of Valkill going north on 9G. It looks like a little ice cream place, but it truly is so much more. If you are driving through our little town, take advantage of this little hidden gem!

“Under the radar”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

I was surprised to see Clancy's listed as it is so far under the radar. Clancy's recently changed ownership and picked this name. Why, I don't know, but I am glad the owners bought the place. Clancy's is a tiny food and ice cream emporium. The only food I ever have there is the Philly cheese steak because it is so good, as are the fries, so I can't talk about any other dish. Their ice cream is home made, and it is terrific. When I am out and about all by myself, I take a newspaper, head to Clancy's and relish the comfort food. Yum.

“Quality and Quantity!!!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Amazing homemade food with pretty big portions! You can tell a lot of time and effort goes into the food and also the homemade ice cream. Service is excellent, and you feel like you're part of the family when you walk in! Not to mention the delicious wine ice cream if you are over 21!

“Great place to stop”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Love their ice cream. Sugar free/fat free choices are much appreciated. wish you would develop that line to include more flavors! staff is fast and friendly. It seems to have new owners now, as there is a new sign with a new name going up. I hope the service and great ice cream remains the same!
