"If fresh, healthy, well-prepared food rings your chimes, try Main Street Bistro. Friendly and funky, it epitomizes a college-town state of mind. Service that is warm, food that is very good and prices that are value-driven add to an enjoyable meal."
Bill Guilfoyle, Times Herald-Record
"Before you head home, have breakfast at New Paltz's Main Street Bistro. It opens at 7am on the weekends and serves wildly wonderful combinations like Salmon Hash or The Scooter Frittata Skillet."
Emeri Krawczyk, The Buffalo News
Times Herald Record, 2006
"This place came highly recommended. As expected, we had to wait to get a seat. And worth the wait it was! The food was very good. The decor was fitting and I basically just enjoyed myself while there. "
"On a regular weekend, any New Paltz visitor will find the sidewalk in front of the Bistro to be overflowing with faces, hungry faces. And although another restaurant, just two doors down from the Bistro, has empty tables both inside and out, time and again people suppress their hunger until they're rewarded with a seat inside the Bistro."
"Perusing the menu tells you this place is cool: dishes are named after music legends and regional mountain ranges, tofu is used in endless ways, and from eggs to Italian sausage, the food is lick-your-lips tempting."
2000 Award Winner "Best Natural Food Restaurant", Hudson Valley Magazine
"The Main Street Bistro serves the best breakfast in town, featuring Franklin Lakes Cranberry Cakes. These flapjacks combine cranberries and almonds for a delectable Sunday morning treat."
Stefan C. Friedman, The New York Post
"Not to be missed!"
Roger Plantadosi, The Washington Post
"The Main Street Bistro has about 40 seats and a counter, at which you can enjoy one of 65 different beers, vegetarian entrees, southwest dishes, homemade quiche and a wide variety of pasta specialties. The restaurant has a bright, open feel and the roomy tables give plenty of space to stretch out with a good book, or an array of tasty samples from the kitchen. Our $18.65 price tag was very reasonable for the generous servings of well-prepared food and friendly service."
Brenda Buchbinder Sachs for The Poughkeepsie Journal
"Fresh pasta's, gourmet salads and sandwiches and burgers of all kinds are served in a casual atmosphere. The pastries and baked goods are outstanding. More than 60 types of beer and wine to choose from."
