We stopped here on our way to Lake Placid, NY and was looking for a place to eat before getting on the New York Thruway. I had the Cajun Chicken Wrap, it was very good. My daughter had the tortilla soup which she said was very good. My son had their toasted cheese and my wife a house salad which they liked. Try there French fries.

Small farm stand that has lots to look for. Try their homemade jellys and jams. A small bakery attached to it makes pretty good sweets....

I’m from California and the one thing I miss on the East Coast is a really good breakfast place. This place knows how to do it with fresh baked goods that they make there! Beautiful plates of real food! I especially loved the creamed spinach with poached eggs, and the salmon toast. And the pancakes are fantastic... Remember, there’s always a line but it’s worth the wait and the good conversation.

We reserved a table early on a Saturday evening and were seating immediately upon arrival. The place was out of fashion and kind of dark; another reviewer commented on the tired, old-fashioned decor and the establishment replied that they're just trying to keep it sort of old-school Italian - well, I call nonsense on that. The decor needs an update badly and could still look authentic or traditional Italian - probably moreso - with a designer. You could just tell the place has looked the same for probably 20+ years. We additionally had this weird creepy clown painting hovering next to our table; very odd.
The service was adequate though we were served by literally 5 different people throughout the course of our meal, from who I think may have been the owner to various waiters to a young girl. We really had no idea who "our" waiter was, though two of the people were overly familiar with us and kind of rude, making comments about nearly everything we asked for or didn't eat (for example, "What, you don't like mushrooms" when I left some mushrooms on my appetizer plate" or being clearly annoyed when asking for olives to be kept out of another dish.) Overall, they were fine and attentive but it was just kind of strange.
The food was average-to-good which is the only reason I'm not giving a 2-star review. There were some dishes that were rarer such as a polenta appetizer, an octopus appetizer, and gorgonzola gnocchi. The polenta was tasty but was served to me luke-warm and had previously been just heated up. The gnocchi was nice but nothing amazing and for the prices at this place, the food needed to be amazing to justify it. As the food was only as good as you'd get at any Italian restaurant, the price was pretty hilarious. We paid $110 without tip for two glasses of wine, two appetizers, and two entrees (one was pasta). That's just not acceptable without the food and overall experience being excellent, and it just wasn't. If the bill had been $6 (like it would have been at other similar restaurants), I'd have added a star to the rating but definitely one star off for discrepancy between high prices and middling food. We went somewhere else for dessert, having no desire to spend more time there.
Another odd thing: plenty of people were coming in and being seated in another section of the restaurant on a Saturday night without a reservation and dressed in literally like tank tops and shorts. With waiters in full suits and again, $110 dinners, there should be some sort of dress code at the very least. Why am I paying that much when I may as well be at a diner or on the beach?
Ah well. A lot of the customers seemed like regulars based on conversations they were having with staff so that probably accounts for many of these reviews. Also, it's Suffern, which isn't exactly a *happening scene* so this very well might be one of the better places around but I'm used to eating in Montclair, Ridgewood, etc. and this place doesn't hold a candle to comparably-priced restaurants like Cravings or Finca.
Oh, also, our leftovers weren't delivered directly to us but were stashed somewhere for us to get on our way out with a playing card voucher of sorts. I didn't really get that. And the credit card machine was broken so it took us about 8 minutes and 3 staff members to get out of there.
I would recommend finding a much less expensive place, or an expensive place with a better overall experience. I would have no reason to return here and would say others can skip it.

Visited for Sunday brunch. A huge assortment of food including the usual breakfast fare, hot dishes such as pastas, beef, chicken, rice, vegetables and much more. Also large shrimp with cocktail sauce, muffins, lox, cheeses, fruits, sushi, and desserts.
The view is great! You dine overlooking the mountains.
Service is good. Dirty plates cleared very quickly. Lots of parties, so it can get a bit noisy. The "bonsai" birthday isn't worth an additional $5. Not sure why they charge that to stand over the birthday person, sing, and let you blow out a huge candle. They give you a little pineapple boat with an umbrella. Kind of silly, but fun.
Only other thing is we had to track a server down more than once for coffee refills. Not a huge deal, though. Great atmosphere, food was very fresh and certainly plentiful. Something for everyone.

Good deal too... 15 bagels for price of dozen. They are delicious! Sometimes parking is tough but inside they move their line quick and efficiently.

I just posted a review of Characters, but it was accidentally inserted into the section on Rhodes Tavern in Sloatsburg. Ooops!! Help, please!!
If you are looking for either a pub atmosphere or a family sit down then this is a good place to eat. Very good Irish food. Love the shepherd's pie. Also really enjoyed the lunch special French dip.

On a recent trip we drove by Jessie's Bagels. We stopped there 4 days in a row for bagels and or breakfast wraps. Everyday we enjoyed our food. The western breakfast wrap was delicious! Each day the small restaurant was very busy but the staff handled the crowd well. Even though we had to stand in line, it was worth the wait. Most people got their bagels, coffee etc. to go as there are just 3 or 4 tables inside.
