The restaurant is set in the small popular village of Rhinebeck. The food and service are excellent. I would highly recommend this spot. The pastries are incredible!! The changing art work on display by local artists is beautiful.

The place is charming and quaint, the pastries and desserts are incredible. They had me at garlic soup! LOL. The service was great and I love the fact that it is small and family run & that they show local Hudson Valley Art!

Unfortunately, this chef has only seven tables, so we could not have dinner there, but his pastries are every bit as good as those of Bec Fin in Philadelphia (now Patrick Gauthier in Wayne) Parking close by.

Order the rack of lamb if they have it that night or you can call a few days in advance and tell them you want a rack of lamb. They will get it for you. If you like lamb, it's fabulous!
