I spent a few hours here on a beautiful spring day, enjoying a few excellent New York ales and finishing with the redonkulus Shatzi's Burger, which features a pork belly (basically not-smoked bacon) and a potato pancake. Sounds crazy but it was delicious and not as over-the-top as you might imagine. The fries were good. The German potato salad was... More

A hipster coffeeshop/guitar shop that has an aura of the funky old building it occupies. I had a large latte that was so good that it made me sad to finish it! My wife's iced decaf latte was equally delicious. The prices were a downright bargain compared to the big chain. This will be our coffee stop whenever we are... More

Walked in and saw lots of period couches, chairs and tables to rest ourselves. Lots of 60s atmosphere with artwork and style. The menu makes it a must place to stop for a relaxing break or even a good place to meet up.

A small stage in the corner and a bunch of couches strategically positioned around a warehouse-like room. The stage is open to local musicians who want to share the love.

Had lattes here a few times and really liked it. The staff are very nice and the place is a mix between guitar shop and cafe. Recommended as a local favorite of climbers and the college crowd. Friendly to all!

In a town that still wears tie-dye, paints the heads of the parking meters mellow lilac, and brags it is vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, free-range, & organically grown, this place is perfect. The vibe is mellow, the coffee is good, but when I was there the snacks were limited. Store front window seating offers a view of the town's main street... More

Never went into a groovy type of cafe before but me and hubby decided to experience it. There were couchs and tables and chairs to chill for awhile. Line was kinda long as there is only one person to make your personalized drink. Had some good drinks on the menu and a limited amount of goodies to eat. I had... More

Great space and inviting! Coffee is good as well as the other beverage selections and the snacks. Music shop towards front of space is cool and they have open mic etc.

This funky find on Main Street in New Paltz is a great place for a coffee break. This cavernous and shabby-chic, lofty-library style space has great coffee, misc baked goods, and lots of mis-matched furniture, tables and places to read, hang out, chill, meet-up or daydream.

This old fashioned store has been turned into a very good, relaxing spot that has sofas, comfortable chairs and tables so you can enjoy their many choices of coffee, tea and delicious baked goods. A great place to hang out with free wifi.
