I've lived in NP for over 10 years and I love everything about the bistro except for the quality of the food. It's a long wait for slightly better than diner food. The staff is great, love the location, and the coffee and all drinks...More

One of my favorite restaurants in New Paltz. If we aren't sure where to go eat, this is always a good choice. Nice and casual, friendly service. Big menu with lots of vegetarian choices. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Where would I park for Saturday lunch around 1:00 PM? Do you have a parking lot?

It's metered street parking. Depending on tourists (either SUNT New Paltz families or autumn pumpkin and apple shoppers), it can be difficult or relatively easy. Weekdays tend to be better for street parking.
