My High School has begun to ask to go here to focus on work while grabbing lunch or a snack. He's taken after my habit of heading there for a working/study/writing lunch. THe environment is a happy medium between a cafe with just about the right amount of noise that you can listen to your music while working and eating,... More

The fall is the best time to enjoy the food and drink at Taste Budd's. You can eat on the front porch or large front lawn under umbrellas. Order inside and your food will be served at your table. It is relaxed, calm, great place to meet friends for coffee and Morning Glory muffin, my favorite. Or try the curried... More

Taste Budds is a unique place to eat in Red Hook N.Y. The food is outstanding. i often get a bagel with cream cheese eggs and pesto or Jalapenos The staff is friendly They often have some great specials so always check those out first. Their lattes are excellent. The chocolates woow be careful they are addictive.

Most recently there for lunch. Have always had excellent food and good service. You may have a wait if it is busy but well worth waiting. They have outside seating in summer and that is good as inside can be a bit crowded.

Someone recommended this place to me as a coffee house experience plus. The inside was like a cool coffeehouse. For wifi users, you get the access code at the counter. The chocolates look delightful - ranged from the simple to the fancy. I settled on a coconut-chocolate chip bar that was rich, crumbly but not messy and yummy. If I... More

we had wonderful fresh sandwiches, fudge and beverages here. Very informal order-at-the-counter place. Seating outside in good weather is great. Great selection for this tiny town!

I was very surprised at how delicious the food was. Definitely not a quiet place, though. Many teenagers in the place in the late afternoon. However, once they left, it was quite nice! Still, I would definitely go back for a great tasting meal! I tried the chicken flatbread panini with goat cheese and fig paste!!
