We recently enjoyed a dinner here while traveling to visit Vassar College. Nice drink/wine menu and the patio is a great spot for dinner and people watching. It is within easy walking of the college.

We stumbled upon this very nice restaurant that displays local artists work and serves delicious breakfast and other fun entrées for a very reasonable price. Hip vibe being next to Vassar. Electic clientele and friendly staff. Avocado toast with fried eggs and Salsa was outstanding.

After being seated and ordering drinks, the wait to get service was way too long. We were told the bartender would be pouring our drinks and when she did they just sat behind the bar. Out waitress was busy, but finally my husband got up and asked for our drinks. No collaboration. The bartender had zero customers so she could... More

I like this bistro for casual meals - great place to eat outside in nice weather. Menu is simply but well curated.

Good location. Food is okay, nothing to write home about. Asparagus spinach dip was great but the tortillas were to organic tasting, not a real chip. Asked for the burger medium rare and it was cooked almost well done through out. French fries were good. Decent IPA on draft.

Stopped by for late lunch while visiting our daughter in Poughkeepsie. My husband had a roast beef sandwich. I had the black bean humus wrap. We both had side salads. The food was very good. Service was friendly and prompt. We were too full to try dessert, but were tempted. We would love to return and try the dinner menu.

First time there and a wonderful treat! Avocado fries were interesting and tasty. Braised short ribs with a red wine au jus, mashed potatoes w/parsnips; green beens were all absolutely delicious and done perfectly. Friends enjoyed the duck risotto immensely. Service was very nice. Decor is lovely. Didn't enjoy the tiny fly or two that hovered. Not inexpensive but didn't... More

If HUMAN HAIR and POOR SERVICE are what you’re seeking for lunch during a work week, then this is the place for you. My friend’s lunch came with a hair in it, and she had to send it back. Meanwhile, I had to wait to eat mine, b/c I have manners. Her new “hairless” lunch came out, and I ate... More

Babycakes Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants because the food and service is consistently very good. And the prices are very reasonable. When conditions are good I prefer to eat outside, then take a stroll through Vassar College campus.

We had brunch here after a delightful visit to Poughkeepsie for our nephew's wedding. Next to the Vassar College campus, this is a special restaurant: creative flavors and non-standard versions of brunch fare. I had a frittata made with a combination of eggs, potato,herbs and vegetables. The pesto drizzle was the perfect touch to pull the dish together. My wife... More

Eclectic restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with an emphasis on fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Wonderful food and bar menus change often with creative specials daily. Slow food in a casual setting with culinary trained chefs, managers and servers. We take our food seriously! Customized off premise catering for everything from office luncheons to upscale weddings. Seasonal patio dining in the beautiful Arlington neighborhood near Vassar College. BC is the place to be morning, noon and night!
