Welcome to the Rosendale Cafe

The Rosendale Cafe offers some of the best vegetarian food and performing artists in the Hudson Valley, serving weekly entrees, assorted salads, exciting homemade desserts, organic coffees, six tap micro brews, and wine.

Weekend concerts feature both local and international musicians: singer-songwriters, jazz, blues, world, and experimental; and every other Tuesday we host Singer-Songwriter Tuesdays, a showcase of local musicians.

Enjoy delicious, whole vegetarian cooking and hear great music in an intimate, smoke free restaurant environment.

Recognized by Chronogram Magazine as Best Vegetarian Restaurant and Best Performance Space, we also received a four star rating for food and value in the Poughkeepsie Journal.

After a concert by The Hunger Mountain Boys, enthusiastic audience member Ammuse wrote “… The Rosendale Cafe holds a special place in my heart, being among one of my favorite intimate music venues in not only my surrounding area, but in NY State itself.”  Click here to see the full review, including some great photos.
