Harvest Hosts

In my last post, I concluded with my desire to spend my birthday night at a local winery using my Harvest Hosts membership. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. It’s unfortunate on many levels. Here’s what happened: Millbrook Winery I attempted to reserve a night at Millbrook Winery. Figuring it was a popular place, I called [...]

Brunch at Duo Bistro – Kingston NY

Duo Bistro

We took a leisurely ride to Kingston, NY to have brunch at Duo Bistro.  I came across Duo Bistro because I was browsing around the internet looking for places in the Hudson Valley that served Saturday brunches.  Duo Bistro popped up and I perused their brunch menu. Well, when I saw the Chef Omelet, I [...]

County Fare Restaurant in Wappingers Falls NY

County Fare

We recently visited the County Fare restaurant located in the Village of Wappingers Falls, NY. What a lovely little establishment. When we first walked in it reminded me of the television show bar/restaurant Cheers, except the layout is a bit different.  The bar is on the right, and there’s dining to the left and back. The [...]

Dining at Bonsai Restaurant in Poughkeepsie, NY

Bonsai II

I’d be lying if I said this was the first time I’ve eaten at Bonsai II restaurant. Actually it’s a restaurant that we go to quite frequently. The reason we go there so often is because the food is good. Not only is the food good but the service is excellent and relatively inexpensive to [...]

Dining at the I84 Diner in Fishkill NY

I84 Diner

After the long trip from NC (and a disappointing breakfast at The Southland Restaurant), we were weary and in need of sustenance. We stopped at the I84 Diner in Fishkill, NY. It was around 8:30 or 9:00pm so we opted for a dinner of soup and burger. Since we’re following a ketogenic lifestyle, our soups and [...]

Stopping by The Rosendale Cafe

The Rosendale Cafe

I wish I had written about the Rosendale Cafe right after I visited it but I didn’t (blast that darn procrastination). Anyway, a few months ago my daughter and I were in Rosendale on a failed Craigslist run. After the long unsuccessful trip, we were hungry and decided to stop in the Cafe for breakfast. [...]

Brunch at The Tomato Cafe

Tomato Cafe

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 [...]

Lunch at West Main Kitchen & Bar

West Main

Update 10/26/19: West Main Kitchen & Bar is now permanently closed. The other day we decided to visit West Main Kitchen & Bar for lunch. Actually West Main was our second dining choice. We drove over to the Culinary Institute but, the restaurants were closed. The CIA won’t reopen until late August. Oh well, since [...]

Brunch at the Towne Crier Cafe

Towne Crier Cafe

It’s unbelievable how many times we’ve walked right past the Towne Crier Cafe located on Main Street in Beacon, NY and never really paid attention to it. This Sunday, however, we decided to take our time, park further away from the Beacon Farmers’ Market and walk down Main Street. Our goal was to have brunch, [...]
