Love this place! - Edit

Main Street bistro is one of my favorite diners. Anything in the menu can be adjusted to be vegetarian/vegan for a none to a small price. Many menu options are already vegetarian and SO good. Fairly priced as well and has a great atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Pros: great food, good atmosphere , fairly priced

Good food, pleasant staff - Edit

We've been to this restaurant a few times and each time it was a pleasure to dine there. There is no worry about what to order because they have loads of plant-friendly (including many vegan) options. They even have a vegan chocolate cake that is AMAZING!! Friendly, knowledgeable staff is sensitive to special diets and food allergies.

Veg conscious staff - Edit

As another reviewer noted, this is not a vegetarian restaurant, but there are many veg options(noted as such on the menu) and the staff is very conscious. I ordered a breakfast tofu skillet and they automatically asked if I was vegan and wanted no butter on the toast.

The food also happens to be outstanding. Karma Road is great, but don't overlook this place. Yummy!

Worth the wait. - Edit

Main Street Bistro is the place to go for breakfast in New Paltz - and apparently everyone thinks so, because there is always a long wait to be seated. And if you have a party of six, as we did yesterday, you can expect to wait outside for a good 45-50 minutes! It's well worth the wait, though. The food is great, and the coffee is excellent - strong and full-bodied, the way a good cup of coffee should be (soy milk is available). The menu is varied, creative, and extremely vegetarian friendly; they even offer veggie bacon and sausage. Vegan selections are very limited, but there are a few on the menu... and I'd be willing to bet that they would substitute tofu scramble for eggs in many of their dishes, if asked nicely.

This was my second visit to Main Street Bistro. On my first visit, I had a Frittata Skillet from their specials board; if memory serves me, it was two eggs scrambled with some sort of veggies, served in a little skillet on a bed of home fries, and topped with melted cheddar and jack cheeses. It was a year ago, so the specifics are hazy - but I do remember enjoying it thoroughly.

Yesterday I decided on the Veggie Benedict - two poached eggs, sautéed spinach and tomatoes, and cheddar cheese, sitting atop a toasted English muffin, and topped with hollandaise. The eggs were perfectly poached, with the yolks just barely runny, and the accompanying home fries were nice and crispy. My only complaint about the dish is that the English muffin could have been toastier; other than that, it was superb. The two other vegetarians in our party each ordered the Breakfast Club Sandwich - a hulking triple-decker thing on 12-grain bread, which consists of scrambled eggs, pesto, sprouts, red onion, tomato, avocado, and muenster cheese, also served with home fries. Neither of their sandwiches were served with the avocado on it, though, which was hugely disappointing. Still tasty, but when you're looking forward to avocado and the avocado isn't there... sadness ensues. (In defense of the Bistro, neither party bothered to complain about the missing avocado, so the restaurant wasn't given the opportunity to make good on it.) Our omnivorous friends enjoyed their meals, as well; this is a great place to go when you're with a "mixed crowd".

All in all, this place serves a tasty, memorable breakfast. When I next return to New Paltz, I will definitely wait outside for as long as it takes to eat here again.

Pros: Creative, varied menu, Extremely Veg Friendly, Casual atmosphere with an edgy vibe

Cons: Way too small..., Way too popular!
