We took a .7 mile walk from The Tides where we were staying to get breakfast one the mornings of our stay. This is a great local spot to get breakfast sandwiches, muffins and coffee. There is seating inside and out. Pleasant staff.

Ate there twice in one week - Lunch was great, nice panini's - very tasty and fresh. Had the hot apple cider since it was a bit chilly out and it was so good. Service was quick and friendly. The next day had a breakfast sandwich croissant - egg, bacon and cheese. My only concern and it is a big... More

The Local is a great place for a cuppa Joe, a nosh & reading the morning paper. You can also enjoy their ice cream in one of the few places in the area to grab a cone!

A very quaint coffee shop. If you are looking for espresso this is the place to stroll into and stay for the people watching.

Ride your bike from the Tides, grab and coffee, muffin and a newspaper. Reasonably priced, quick and easy, much better option for those staying at the Tides

My husband and I patronized The Local restaurant for breakfast. The staff were very pleasant, and I can see that the restaurant is a location where Irvington residents like to come to the restaurant to socialize. Very friendly atmosphere.

My family and I have eaten at The Local at least 30 times. It is a decent coffee shop for a small town. Not Portland, Seattle or Richmond quality but still they do a nice job. The muffins and toasted bagels are very good. The cappuccino and latte are above average. IMHO, the coffee is below average for real coffee... More

The Local is a place you want to return to, time and again. The food is great, the atmosphere is both quaint and casual. Service is fantastic. I recommend it very highly. It has become a Sunday morning ritual for me and my friend.

We rode our bikes in town for breakfast, this was the only place open. it was not too busy and there was apace to park the bikes. The food was good not special standard breakfast stuff, but it hit the spot. Service was ok, not too friendly. Too many flys, not sure they can do anything about it.
