Good food after visiting Storm King? Mountainville/West Point area...

We are headed up to visit Storm King in the next week or so, and would like a nice place to stop for lunch. We will be with family from out of town, so would prefer to stay away from chains and pizza places, looking more for cafe/bistro, good soup and sandwich, etc. Any suggestions?

  1. A few recommendatons in the area...Hudson Street Cafe in Cornwall on Hudson (5 minutes up the road) is great. Nice atmosphere, great range of comfort food items (owner uses a lot of locally grown produce). I also like Fiddlestix Cafe on Main Street in Cornwall. Their brunch and lunches are very creative and yummy. Lastly, Painters Restaurant in Cornwall on Hudson has a pretty setting and good food. I'm not sure if Fiddlestix has a website, but I believe the other two do.

      Thank you Jess! Those sound perfect.

    2. My husband and I had a lovely lunch at Painters restaurant in Cornwall yesterday. It was delightful. The soups were homemade, and the portions were generous with a good variety of options. It was suggested to us by a local resident who said it is their favorite. I can see why!! There are several other restaurants in town, that looked interesting. It is worth another trip back to try them.

      1. Piggybacking on this query...

        I will also be visiting Storm King soon and would like to find a place to stop by for food afterward. However, I'm more interested in getting some hot apple cider and donuts. Any recommendations in the area?

          Jones Farm in Cornwall is about five minutes away and excellent. It's a farm and country store. They make their cider donuts all day and they are yummy!
