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,
three 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.

Tomorrow's Event at the Cafe:|
Salsa Thursday with lessons and Latin dancing
Thursday, December 8 at 7:30pm Cost: $10.00 with lesson, $5.00 for just dancing
The Rosendale Cafe continues their series of Latin dance events on Thursday nights, each starting with an all-levels lesson from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, and dancing until 10:30pm. Instructor David Salvatierra and Julia Farr will lead dance forms that may include Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Cha Cha, Bachata, and now the fun style of Rueda de Casino.
Rueda de Casino is a style where several couples dance choreographically around a circle, with dance moves spoken by a "caller". This style was developed in Cuba in the 1950s, and is the greatest way to learn salsa as community. Everyone can join this class!

Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine
Saturday, December 10 at 8:00pm Cost: $15.00
The decrepit, near-death duo of Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine return to Rosendale Cafe for an evening of theatrical ineptitude, faux poetry, and comedy so abstruse that only three particle physicists and a multilingual German tobacco auctioneer can understand them. Don't miss this gig on December 10... their next performance won't take place until 2020, in the gift shop of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.
"2 guys too smart to be considered as funny as they really are, and too funny to be considered as seriously as they should be." --Bart Plantenga, deejay, Wreck This Mess, Radio 100 (99.3 FM) Amsterdam, NL
