Good place to catch up with a friend or go get breakfast after a hike! They just re-vamped their menu and there are tons of choices. Both the iced coffee and hot chocolate are AMAZING. Definitely my favorite restaurant in the Cold Spring Harbor area.

Yes it is a charming spot that serves food has a bakery and has a good deal of nostalgic items however, the real outstanding item to have is their hand made fudge. Truly world-class and not to be missed.
