Phoenicia, NY or nearby for brkfst or lunch with 3 yr. old?

Taking my son to the Railway Museum in Phoenicia on Sunday. Depending on the timing, we'd probably want to get breakfast or lunch near there. So what would be good and kid-friendly?

  1. we went 2 weeks ago. sweet sue's ("the" place there) is jam packed if you get there after 9:30, we were there before that. get only 1 pancake / person, however, unless you can eat a ton.

    if that's packed, there's a couple other diners that serve breakfast on route 28. we were specifically looking to hit sweet sue's for the pancakes, as i suspect everyone else does, so if you're not picky, i'd check the diner out.

    if you're coming from the south or east, i'd check out new world home cooking in woodstock on the way back.

    also, check out the kaleidoscope show @ emerson place...we did that and the railroad ride. the "museum" is a couple minutes of your time, at most, unfortunately.

      Brios wood fired pizza is pretty good for the pizza , never had anything else there though

        To Bob Gaj:
        Might I ask you some questions about the museum and railway ride off this site? If you're willing, please email me at dana.polan@nyu.edu. I'd love to talk to someone who did this visit. Thanks.
