Village Coffee and Goods
This cafe in Kingston will make you consider moving Upstate just so you can live out your Hudson Valley meet-cute fantasies with a barista that cuts their own firewood. The coffee is excellent here, and their cozy dining room two doors down is a great place to park yourself with a laptop and a breakfast plate full of steelhead trout, folded eggs, sourdough toast, and a light heap of creme fraiche. It’s also good for lunch, which is when you should get whatever seasonal salad or bowl is available. Don’t ignore the pastry case filled with tomato focaccia loaves and perfectly laminated croissants if you’re not hungry for a full meal.
