Open for Business: Bring On Brunch
A new café in Wappingers Falls
Yelp reviewers have plenty to say about the Blackboard Café in Wappingers Falls. Some have called it “phenomenal,” others say its dishes are “exceptionally well done,” and more than a few simply choose to use a few OMGs to describe their love for the eatery.
Having opened its doors in January, this full-service café does breakfast and lunch right, with a signature blackboard menu that lists specials like hot apple-glazed pancakes and a stuffed beer burger. Expect warm comfort food on a regular basis — stews, soups, wraps, pastas — and those sublime combination dishes, sunny-side up eggs with hash browns and the occasional pork chop.
The newbie touts itself as the “home of the Rainbow Cookie Cheesecake,” a popular treat that puts the Cheesecake Factory to shame. But all of their freshly baked goodies are equally delicious. Stop by on Fridays for Italian-themed cuisine, Saturday is set aside for American dishes, and Sundays feature a slew of family favorites.
Dine outside with one of the can’t-put-it-down pastries (the banana pudding cake is a favorite) or snag a table for a heftier meal. Did we mention there are occasional soul food specials? Bring on those St. Louis-style ribs!
