Cafes and Bakeries
A trip into one of our local bakeries is enough to transport anyone into a state of mouth-watering anticipation. Who doesn’t love the warm, enveloping smell of freshly baked bread, donuts, and blueberry muffins?
At La Patisserie Normande in Windham, the traditions of French baking and café culture are on display and waiting. Owner Antoine Vasse creates marvel after marvel and is celebrated for his Napoleons, chocolate eclairs, and apple tarts as much for his buttery croissants and specialty cakes. Visit Catskill Mountain Country Store & Bakery for a one-of-a-kind menu, where breakfast is served all day. Try one of their imaginative pancakes like the "Chunky Monkey" with bananas, walnuts and chocolate chips, or chose a savory omelette made with free range, organic eggs.
In Tannersville, Twin Peaks Coffee and Donuts offers freshly roasted coffee and a variety bake goods made from scratch. You can even purchase their house roasted coffee beans and hot doughnuts made to order. From Catskills diners serving up fresh donut ice cream sandwiches to cafés made for savoring perfect espresso and chocolate cake – our Great Northern Catskills bakers are masters of pastry.
Greene County is home to some of the best greasy spoon grub in the state, from doughnuts the size of dinner plates stuffed with hand-churned ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce, to grass-fed burgers served on homemade buns with a side of homemade ketchup.
