Best Lunch Spot:

The Apple Pie Bakery Café is the perfect place to stop for lunch during a busy day of sightseeing in the Hudson Valley. A delicious meal here will delight and satisfy, and keep you going for the rest of the day. Make the café part of your plans!

You might spend the morning touring the Vanderbilt Mansion and grounds then stop in for lunch at the Café. After lunch, you’ll be ready to enjoy a stroll across the Walkway Over the Hudson and marvel at the views or spend an intriguing and informative afternoon at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library, just down the road. No matter which of the many sites in this area you choose to enjoy, the Apple Pie Bakery Café is a delicious “must.”

The Apple Pie Bakery Café received awards for “Best Desserts” and “Best Lunch Spot” on Hudson Valley Magazine’s annual “Best Of The Hudson Valley” list.
