A Newburgh Food Tour

Everyone loves food especially us. We decided to hit up one of the most eclectic food towns in the Hudson valley. Newburgh? Yep you heard us correct, Newburgh is where its at right now for yummy delicious and diverse food. Don't believe us? Just wait till the end of this article, we will make you a believer.


It’s morning and you want nothing more than strong coffee, a fresh pastry, and some kind of protein that will fuel you through the day. Newburgh is not lacking for coffee shops, and right on Broadway is the famed 2 Alices Coffee Lounge, a hip coffee joint that serves hot drinks and a stellar mac and cheese. Just down the road, on Liberty Street, is the Newburgh Flour Shop. A chic, well-lit cafe, this place makes all its own breads, pastries, and desserts. Stop in for fantastic biscuits, fresh focaccia, and take your time perusing the french style tarts and entremets on display.

Shelter House Cafe

If you’re looking for a bit more of a hearty meal, the Shelter House Cafe at Downing Park is the perfect place for a great menu and a historic venue. Formerly a refuge for ice-skaters, the cafe opened last year to great fanfare, and the seasonal menus and lovely vista make it a perfect brunch spot. Local favorite Blacc Vanilla Lounge Cafe also merits inclusion, serving delicious southern-style items like collards and shrimp and grits at an affordable price. Blacc Vanilla also serves as an event space and community artist’s hub, and the style and charm of this quirky cafe make it a must-visit addition to any Newburgh food tour.


It might seem a little unusual, but lunch places are a big hit in Newburgh. With a significant working-class population, remote work on the upswing, and plenty of artists in the are many restaurants serve employees during their shifts and before they head off to work. This means that there are plenty of restaurants that close at five, have inexpensive lunch specials, large portions, and absolutely delicious food.
