Once in a while the need to escape NYC beckons. Don’t get me wrong as I love my city but there is a lot more to see and do outside of the five boroughs. Plenty of towns up north just a train ride away of only an hour or two ride.

After spending a day trip up in Cold Spring NY wandering around, shopping, snacking, exploring, and sightseeing we checked this place out for a mid-afternoon lunch. It was called Hudson Hil’s.

Great service.
Delicious food.
Quality portions.
Bright country-style decor.
Breakfast served all day.


I ordered the Summer Salad  – fresh salad greens with pomegranate, pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, carrots, blue cheese, and croutons tossed in blueberry vinaigrette. For a few dollars more had a piece of grilled salmon on top. Just the right kind of option for lunch on a warm summer afternoon.

Delicious salad topped with grilled salmon.

The lady enjoyed the Goat Cheese and Honey Baguette – goat cheese drizzled with honey and topped with green apple, carrots, avocado and pea sprouts on a French baguette. Served with homemade potato chips. Yum.

Gotta love those house made chips!

Both were tasty and hit the spot. Overall decent prices too. So glad we decided to grab some eats here. Their menu features fresh local ingredients from Hudson Valley farms. Some craft beers to choose from and a wine list is also available. A terrific choice for brunch or lunch if in the area.

They also prepare specialty items for picnics, hikes, luncheons, gift baskets, birthdays and more. With all the hiking trails close by, and picnicking on the grounds of Boscobel House and Gardens their food is a perfect choice.

A little bit of country charm just a few short strides out of the city. A gem of a place.

  1. I love “dropping by” at places that have “a little bit of country charm just a few short strides out of the city.”

    Even though I live in the German capital – Berlin – there seems to be a surprisingly large number of such places. Right here! There’s a place that I love going to and you have to take a 25 minute ferry to get there. And it’s free if you have a “normal” ticket. Honestly, you wouldn’t know you were in “the city” at all as it’s a lake huddled by boats and yachts. Just take a picnic basket, your blanket and your swimming stuff. Or not! Ho! Ho!

    And you’re good to go!

  2. Hi Phil, Hudson Hil’s looks lovely! What a nice day trip and the food looks and sounds delicious, I like both of your choices, I’d be taste tasting off both of those plates. Thanks for sharing and hope you are enjoying a good summer!

  3. Phil, except for the blue cheese, your salad looks and sounds delicious. A few chunks of feta would be more to my liking. Anyhow that looks like a nice, homey place to stop on a summer afternoon.
