Indie Movie Theatre
“Wonderful films. Redhook also has an old-fashion drive-inn and a larger cinema (though we have Netflix). Across the street is the old "Holy Cow" Ice-cream for kids. Nearby you will pass a pick-your-own summer flower stand and some antique shops.”

Coffee Shop

“Breakfast? Yes! Head here to either grab your coffee and pastry and head out, or order from the more extensive menu and be seated in the dining room. Excellent menu. I always love their soups and especially the avocado toast. Probably the best coffee in town.”

“This is our go-to place here in Rhinebeck. Has a little bit of everything, but at least one of us orders the Rigatoni every time to make the other jealous. ”

Indian Restaurant

“A very popular spot, but for good reason. Between the ambiance, service, and spectacularly fresh food, Cinnamon hits it out of the park. Plus, its location in the center of Rhinebeck makes it an easy spot to walk to after shopping or sightseeing around town. ”

“To be honest, we have a love/hate relationship with this place. It’s absolutely adorable, yet every other time we go we are completely annoyed with the service. If you want to take a chance, it really is beautiful. Decent food but better to go here for a drink. A tourist favorite.”

Farmers Market
“Our favorite Farmer's Market is in Rhinebeck (17 min away) in the town center, also a perfect opportunity to explore their brunch spots nearby. The market is open 10a-2p on Sundays, and hosted in the Rhinebeck Town Hall Dec-April.”

“This is a fun new place in Rhinebeck--great seafood and lots of yuppified traditional dishes. Try the fried chicken--awesome and not too overwhelming! Fish and chips also excellent, more like poisson et frites.”

Bed & Breakfast
“When you hear of Rhinebeck it’s usually shown with a photo of The Beekman Arms -The oldest Inn in America. This is one of our cold weather date night locales. Great drinks in a cozy pub with next to a fireplace. They do have a front dining room that feels a bit too fancy for my taste. Much better to request the back bar. Wooden tables and cozy high booths. Great steak frites! Be sure to get the bearnaise sauce for maximum decadence. PRIMO SPOT!”

“Can’t decide if we like the rigatoni better here or Market St. SO AMAZING! Great wine selection and excellent food! Gigi’s never disappoints. Fun fact: Chelsea Clinton had her rehearsal dinner here when she was married in Rhinebeck.”
