Off-Campus Dining

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are average, they have some good but not very healthy food. The only bad thing it's that most of the restaurants close very and stop delivering very early.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There all different types of food and all different prices

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't tried too many places, but my top 3 are Taco Shack, China House, and Gourmet Pizza (cheese pie $12!)

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't usually eat off-campus, but when I do, the food is good, the service is friendly, and all the options are close to the school.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I miss Panera bread, and the prices are ridiculous.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

New Paltz's Main Street is lined with awesome, family-owned restaurants, many of which employ SUNY students. Some favorites include Mexicali Blue (a taco/burrito joint that prides itself in using only fresh ingredients), the Main Street Bistro (the Saturday and Sunday morning brunch hot spot with a can't-be-beat breakfast special for $2!), and Karma Road (the organic vegan café downtown).

Those looking for ethnic cuisine can head to Yanni's for a gyro, Lemongrass for some delicious pad thai, Anatolia for Turkish delight, or one of the many Chinese and Japanese spots around town. American cuisine is also available, notably at P&G's, which transforms into a popping bar at night. There are also chain restaurants like McDonald's and Subway farther up Main Street. Many spots have special deals, like "Wing Night" at McGillicuddy's, where you can spring for 40-cent wings!
