For 2006 the readership of Hudson Valley Magazine awarded the honour of “Best in the Hudson Valley” for the Potato Toussaint Tart. In 2007 it was honoured again with “Best Desserts in the Hudson Valley”.


The highest rated New Paltz restaurant in Zagat, this hugely popular restaurant review has consistently praised the restaurant’s, food & décor.

The Times Herald Record

The Times Herald Record declared “The Village TeaRoom is like New Paltz itself, an original that doesn’t follow the traditional path. Agnes Devereux, the owner should be proud. The food here is good; it tastes home made in the best sense of the word.” Four Stars for value!

Poughkeepsie Journal

Four Stars by the Poughkeepsie Journal “Despite a veneer of rustic simplicity, The Village Tearoom manifests a calm, yet profound perfectionism.”
