I had a tuna melt ($10,50), a soda and chips for lunch. I've had coffee here in the past. Its fine for lunch and you won't be unhappy, but nothing special. The kitchen is slow for what they make. They are covering a lot of...bases here -- bakery, coffee shop, lunch stop, entertainment & events (story slam, open mic, music, etc.) --- so its hard to rate them across all their roles -- so I'm limiting my rating to stopping in for lunch. Lots of outdoor dinning. Good COVID protocols and procedures.More

Stopped in after lunch for coffee and a bathroom break. Very Covid compliant, tables marked as clean, signs showing where to stand, clean bathrooms. Oh and good coffee!

Stopped in as my girlfriend grew up in the area and told me they have an awesome peanut butter bar. Ambiance is chill and they still have the bar which was excellent.

Excellent house made confections and chocolates to satisfy anyone's sweet tooth. There is also seating to sit and enjoy coffee or tea with your treat.

Unfortunately my wife and I only had sandwiches for our lunch. She had the Gobblin Goat on a ciabatta while I went with the avocado melt on a rosemary focaccia. These were accompanied by a hot and an iced green tea. Everything was very good....Place your order, grab a table, either indoors, on the patio or on the lawn (smoking allowed only with the lawn seating). Order is brought to your table. NOTE: be sure to bus your own table. We sat on the patio which kept us from sidewalk as well as street traffic. Would love to return to take advantage of all the good looking desserts on display.More

We were on our way home from seeing a performance at Bard. We stopped by to get a "quick bite". Wow! We had a full meal. Didn't need dinner when we got home. The salads are very creative as is the sandwiches. I wish we...leaved closer-I would be a regular .More

Taste Budds is great way to unwind with good music, great coffee and delicious sweets. I love spending evenings there.

Mediocre coffee, sandwiches and soup left me unimpressed. I will choose other places in the future. Some of the desserts were pretty good though.
