Great spot to sit and enjoy a small town's character. The menu and venue is on the simpler side. But the food is great. My favorite - the potato egg and cheese sandwich on a roll. No nonsense, just great fuel to start your day. I've heard great things about the oatmeal here from friends and guests...

Restaurants for Lunch and Dinner
I have yet to hear a single bad thing about any restaurant in town. It seems you can't go wrong, so don't feel you must follow my advice here. These are just the ones we have found we enjoy the most. In no particular order.
This is an excellent restaurant. You will not go wrong here. Just a few minutes walk off of Main St. The dining room is slightly fancier than the rest of this blue collar town, but just a little. If you're short on time they have a delicious artisan pizza selection for takeout. The pies are slightly bigger than personal sized, unless you're a big eater. Then they are perfect for one. Carryout only special is 2 pizzas for $18.

Great in the summertime, excellent all year round. We enjoy the atmosphere in this restaurant as much as the food. This building used to be the old train depot of the town. It has a train theme and train paraphernalia from generations past throughout building. Enjoy the old photos of town while you're there.

A French themed restaurant with some authentic? dishes. I am not French, but I've heard good things. If you're interested in trying some new cuisine this might be a good opportunity.

Delicious pastas with an ample wine selection. Maybe try the champagne brunch on Sundays. The dining area is usually quite dark. Best seat in the house is probably up by the front of the building where you can watch pedestrians on the sidewalk through the large glass windows. They also have outdoor seating during good weather.

Just steps from the Hudson River. The building's 2nd floor doubles as an inn that has been in operation for almost 200 years. Check out one of their dining rooms if you are looking for steaks, fresh market fish, or pub fare. They also offer prix fixe menu and Sunday Lunch and Sunday Brunch menus.

Full bar menu is a good option if looking for pub food. They are known for their burgers.

Cafés around Cold Spring
Cold Spring has a small handful of excellent cafes. Visit these places if looking to pass some time, people watch, or get some emails written that you've been avoiding.
A must visit if you get the chance. The beverages are excellent, but as a bonus, TRY THE EMPANADAS if you are looking for a snack. They also offer many highly recommended gelato flavors and pastries. To top it all off, this charming location is steps from the river and is run by a favorite local couple from Argentina. Check out their outdoor seating area, isn't it cute?

Ask about how they roast their beans. I don't recall the exact process, but it is unique. It gives their coffee a slight citrus flavor. The open floor space is shared by an apothecary and hair salon.

Pubs around town
It's a small town, so the list is short. But they all have a small-town charm to them. Note that most the restaurants in town also have a bar.
Don't be fooled by the barbershop in the storefront - you're in the right place. Just walk through the barber to find your brews. Excellent selection of tasty beers on tap. They do not brew beer here, just serve it, in an old brick room with exposed beams.

Doug's is a local favorite for townies. It offers a full bar and adequate beer on tap. Check out the old school jukebox.

Activities around town
You can get there from the northbound metro north train platform. Just keep walking south (away from town) on the platform until you see the ramp down to the beginning of the park. Explore the trail for just a few minutes that goes up into the woods a little bit for a nice view of a waterfall. You can't miss it if you just keep following the creek.

Hike the Washburn and/or Cornish Estate Trails. You can make a nice loop out of the two. Expect the loop between the Washburn and Cornish Estate trails to take 2.5-5 hours depending on your speed. Access the trail from the Washburn parking lot on 9D, about a 15 minute walk from the house. Take Fair Street to get there.

Approximately November thru April, the Farmer's market is usually held in Saint Mary's on 9D near the Dunkin Donuts. (very close to the SW corner of the stoplight at the corner of Main St. and 9D.)

During approximately May-October, the Farmer's market is in the parking lot at Boscobel on 9D about a mile south of town. It is walkable but just beware that you will need to walk on the shoulder of the road at times and there is not a sidewalk. I see people doing it.

A gem of a locally owned and operated bookstore! Totally worth checking out if you love books. Be warned, you might want to buy one. They also hold reading/storytime for kids many days of the week, especially on Saturdays and Sundays.

Rent a kayak, or go with a group and a tour guide. The storefront is literally 4 houses down the street! Drop in and say hello if you are interested. They are great. Heads up - they sometimes get really busy and you might want to make a reservation if you are sure you'd like to go.

I have never been but have been wanting to for a while. They have very limited hours in the winter but a quick google search shows they are open 12-4pm Wed-Sunday.

I have not yet visited, but I've heard great things. You either need to drive or use their shuttle (or a taxi). Give them a call, they will pick you up at the train station parking lot usually.

Sitting within big rolling hill pastures of the Hudson Highlands and within Fahnestock State Park, on a foggy day it feels like you're up in the Scottish Highlands but walking through gardens that have been meticulously cared for by students. Yes, they run a school here for gardening. I have some literature on the desk in the room. Highly recommend. You need to either have a car or call a taxi to get there, however.

Lots to see and do in the town north of Cold Spring if our little village starts to feel a little too sleepy. There is a brewery conveniently located by the train station - 2 Way Brewing Co., named after the Hudson River and its tidal nature that extends all the way up to Albany on the biggest tides of the year.

Take the train to Poughkeepsie (about 25 minutes) and walk across the Hudson River. The bridge is for pedestrians only. It used to be for cars and trains until it burned and then was repurposed for walking/biking. Originally built in 1889. While you're there, check out Poughkeepsie - the "Queen City of the Hudson" and New York's 2nd capital during and after the American Revolution.
