Those apples and pumpkins have been inspiring art and cuisine for centuries, and nowhere will you find them more fully and deliciously embraced than at The Bakery, a New Paltz institution that's been around for the past four decades and serves up a strong tradition of warm, intelligent hospitality and delicious eats.
To celebrate the glories of autumn, The Bakery will be rolling out its fall menu, and nobody does it better. The finest apples and pumpkins to be had in this quintessential apple and pumpkin mecca are deployed with studied and joyful mastery: apple dumplings and galettes, pumpkin tarts and pumpkin oat cookies, sweet nutty pecan tarts, hot apple cider and soul-satisfying soups.
And even if it's a little soon: Nobody does Hudson Valley autumn quite like David Santner and The Bakery team, be it an ordinary weekday or the epic Night of 100 Pumpkins.
Hungry yet? They're open 7 till 7, seven days a week, so go get your fall on (even if it's still 80 degrees out.)
