Red Rooster Cafe (Gardiner/New Paltz NY)

Found this tucked-away breakfast/lunch spot on Rte 44/55 in "downtown" Gardiner a couple of months ago and have been staking it out ever since. Fantastic luncheonette-style food with Southwestern influences. Recommended: egg dishes, especially those served with a "red rooster cake" a creamy/crispy potato pancake; the smoky, spicy bean soups and beef chili (topped with fresh pico de gallo and melted jack cheese); also, the wonderful Cobb and Hudson Valley-style salads. But the signature dish here is the basket of fresh-cut french fries, an irresistable accompaniment to the burgers (sized 6, 8, 10 oz) and the sandwiches. Good quality ingredients across the board. Keegan Ale served. Staffed by friendly kids who clearly are doing this as a labor of love.
