Get out your reading glasses and prepare to peruse a veritable encyclopedia of breakfast choices at Main Street Bistro, a New Paltz fixture for 20 years that is instantly recognizable by the big peace sign on the side of the building.
Famous among the college crowd and the economically minded for their $1.95 breakfast special — two eggs, home fries, and whole-wheat toast — the 70-seat spot also does a brisk business in breakfast stir-fry dishes (fresh sautéed veggies tossed with scrambled eggs and served over home fries, $8.95) and the Cali X (a tortilla wrapped around two scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and home fries with spinach and avocado) which goes for $6.95.
Triathletes line up for the salmon hash ($9.95), which pairs grilled salmon with poached eggs. Let them drink juice: You can even indulge in a mimosa. 845-255-7766; www.mainstreetbistro.com
