Best of Hudson Valley Winners: 2008
Pick: Editors' Picks
About: For 50 years, Hartmann's Kaffeehaus has been luring Germans, German-Americans, and pastry lovers with their Old World-style cakes and pastries, says owner Diane Giacomino. Of Italian ancestry, Giacomino bought the business from the previous owners six years ago with the promise that she'd continue to make the tasty treats in exactly the same fashion. The most popular items? Black Forest cake, strudel, stollen, and something called Fuerst Pueckler -- a rich white and chocolate cake, soaked with rum, and decorated with marzipan and three different kinds of buttercream. Hartmann's also serves up breakfast and lunch (seating for 50), with classic specialities like bratwurst, potato salad, and, of course, German beers. Auch der lieber!
