Sweet Sue's is back and we couldn't be happier. Such an iconic place and home of the best pancakes this side of the Mississippi!. Sue's has amazing brunches with fresh squeezed orange juice and great coffee drinks and a lovely area to sit out on the front patio and watch the world go by. Right in downtown Phoenicia and just 3 minutes stroll from our property. One of our all time favorites!

Great wood fired pizza! Right in town only 2 minutes walk from our house. Open every day until late. It's a great go to when other food spots are closed mid week . Also serves breakfast. Pro tip- try a slice of cake from the cake cabinet at the back- they are decadent and delicious!

Located in stone building on oldest existing street corner in the US! Delicious craft beers, great coffee drinks poured by expert baristas and baked goods amidst a spectacular array of books for sale. Outside seating. This was once home to the Kingston Academy. Pro tip- try a meat or vegetable pie or sausage roll created by the famous Brooklyn based Down Under Bakery (DUB). I'm from New Zealand so maybe I'm biased but I love a hot crusty meat pie.

With locations in Uptown Kingston and Saugerties, Buns has the most delicious and reasonably priced burgers around. I love the lamb burger! They also do a great vegeburger (portabello mushroom ) and their fries and shakes (made with Jane's local ice cream) are unrivaled.
