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