The Village Tearoom & Bakeshop is located in New Paltz, NY a small little hippy town about 90 miles north of New York City. Agnes Devereux the owner of The Tearoom converted an old barn she had on the back of her property into this adorable little tearoom and bake shop.
Agnes and her staff make everything from scratch. The menu reflects the seasons showcasing many of the area's local farmers and produce. Her slow food approach has captured the stomachs of many foodies, including myself. I'm a sucker for her sweets and cakes including her to-die-for legendary Creme Puffs. Amazing with a pot of hot tea!
If sweets aren't your thing, not to worry. The Tea Room as many other delights such as Irish-style Dingle Pies (spiced minced lamb ensconced in flaky pastry crust) or her new seasonal Asparagus Tart. I can guarantee you'll leave with a happy and well-fed belly.
