We stopped in Fishkill to try The Tomato Cafe. What a nice spot. The service is quick, warm and friendly. The prices are really good and so was the food. I can’t believe we drove by the place so many times without even noticing it.
We were looking for a breakfast meal and they had quite a variety of them. We both ordered eggs. Since we’re eating low carb, high fat, I declined the potatoes and bread and opted for a salad instead. My my open-face egg had spinach, mozzarella and Canadian bacon.
When I first received the plate I thought the meal was rather small. I had grown accustomed to diner breakfasts where the plates are huge and the food is overflowing. Actually, diners give too much food, but that’s the subject of another post.
Tomato Cafe – Good Food
Since the plate seemed small I decided to eat it slowly and enjoy each bite. There’s something about savoring food that seems to make it last longer and taste better. The Canadian bacon added the right saltiness and texture to the meal. Amazingly I was truly satisfied when I was done. I wasn’t too full and was no longer hungry. It was just the right tasty amount. I washed the meal down with a cup of coffee.
When the waitress brought the check we had to do a double take. We’ve never paid so little for a sit down at a restaurant breakfast before. For a quick, good and cheap breakfast, stop by the Tomato Cafe. I think you’ll enjoy it.
BTW, they have quite an extensive menu and serve Italian American food. When we were there I saw plenty of creative pizzas being served. Also, don’t forget to check out their daily specials. They also have 2 locations, one in Fishkill and another in Poughkeepsie.
As we wander around the Hudson Valley, we’ll definitely stop back by here again.
