The Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory is a three-story brick structure, built in 1874. Unique historic setting on the first floor of the factory. The Coffee House & Cafe were created to help launch and strengthen small business, celebrate the culture and culinary talents of our region, and provide a space for the community to come together. Come visit us to see why our mission makes us greater! Our menu features an assortment of local made baked goods by artisan vendors such as Sweet Maresa’s, T-Spoon, Horton House Scone Company, and Bread Alone. We’re also proud to feature a variety of baked goods made in house in partnership with youth receiving employment through our Youth LEAP Employment program.
We feature a wide-variety of gluten-free and vegan items, including a fully gluten-free breakfast and lunch menu by Earth, Wind & Fuego. Earth, Wind & Fuego is a social enterprise radicalizing hiring, training and workplace culture to create sustainable solutions to poverty through inclusive training and employment opportunities. As a social enterprise, EWF seeks, builds and sustains opportunities. We envision a community where everyone is able to live out their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and share their #POUGHTENTIAL with the world.
All of the food is gluten-free and no-soy; all of the meats are free of hormones and antibiotics. They source locally from farms and other businesses in the Valley. The Underwear Factory's goal is to increase awareness of what healthy food is and to make sure it is accessible to people
Breakfast and lunch are served Monday – Friday from 8am – 3pm.
