Main Street Bistro has the best breakfast items on their menu. My two favorites for something a little different are, South of the Border & The Huckleberry. If you want something more traditional, this is the place to get 2 eggs, home fries & toast...More

It's metered street parking. Depending on tourists (either SUNT New Paltz families or autumn pumpkin and apple shoppers), it can be difficult or relatively easy. Weekdays tend to be better for street parking.
