Phoenicia Diner

"Chefs work late nights, so their choice of morning coffee is incredibly important. A good, strong, balanced cup can be had at the Phoenicia Diner, where they feature coffee from local roaster, Java Love in White Lake, NY. They only source organic, sustainable, fair-trade beans that produce a complex and brooding cup of joe. They also have a terrific skillet breakfast. This is the best way to start your morning."

The Arkville Bread and Breakfast

"This is a favorite spot for breakfast. The restaurant is an actual caboose -- a leftover from the days when train travel dominated the Catskills. Jack, the owner, can often be found singing while he prepares your breakfast. Our kids love the chocolate chip pancakes. On the weekends, Jack does a 'British Brekkie,' a traditional English breakfast, complete with Irish bacon, bubble and squeak, fried bread, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted tomato. It's divine and decadent."

Pakatakan Farmers Market

"On Saturdays, the Pakatakan Farmers Market (aka The Round Barn) in Halcottsville, is the 'place to be seen' in the Catskills. You can shop for flowers, fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, artisanal cheeses, honeys and soaps, while listening to live music. Waffles are made fresh in front of you, so you can walk around while noshing on a fresh-out-of-the-griddle waffle topped with whipped cream and artisanal chocolate."

Bread Alone

"They offer a classic breakfast menu, many dishes accompanied by, if not featuring, their own fresh organic breads. It's a cheery atmosphere. I'd recommend ordering the Sprout Creek Goat Cheese Omelet."
